Marvel Studios setting up two new phases had many wondering which would be the next. There are many cult favorites that people were hopeful for and it seems to be coming to fruition.
MOON KNIGHT is being produced by Marvel Studios as a live action show that is coming to Disney plus. The announcement was made today at the D23 Expo currently happening in Anaheim.

Marvel Studios Kevin Feige, on the D23 stage said that MOON KNIGHT will be an “action adventure series” about a mercenary left for dead in the desert.
This next phase of the Marvel Cinematic Universe is going to be a bit more weird and different from what has already been established so this makes sense. it seems that the Warren Ellis run of Moon Knight comics would be perfect for a television series since it shifts between genres in each issues according to Marc Spector’s different personalities. That’s something that could easily be applied to the episodic format and later connect into the larger picture.
There have been many rumors floating around about Keanu Reeves being the perfect person to play Moon Knight, even AVENGERS: ENDGAME co-directors Anthony & Joe Russo even agreed as much. Combine that with the fact that there have been talks about Keanu Reeves taking some kind of role in the MCU, and that certainly raises our eyebrows a bit.
