Moon Knight is a semi succussful vigilante/Super-hero comic book series. Marvel has announced a deal with No Equal Entertainment to make Moon Knight into a TV series. No air date has been reveled

For those of you who don't know who Moon Knight (Mark Spector)is he's a vigilante dressed in a all white costume (see picture)who was given a second chance for life by the egyptian god Khonshu. In return he is to become Khonshus avatar on earth. Spector then decided to become Moon Knight and fight crime. He has multiple secret identities including rich entrepreneur Steven Grant, using this identity to purchase a spacious estate and a taxicab driver Jake Lockley, which he uses to stay in contact with common people.

I think the show it's self should be something like a action/mystery type thing, where you hear his thoughts (like a naration) as he patrols, during fights and other scenes. It definatly needs to be dark but not so much that the character is unlikeable. Moon Knight also needs to fight villians from the comics and not just normal people all the time. For example the Hulk tv series has a great tv show but he almost always went up against just normal people, and the same with Lois and Clark as well.

No it needs to be done like Smallville (with less drama and not make it about when he was young) where he fights people that can actually fight on his level and I also like how other heroes have made appearances on that show.
Now obviously they can alter the costumes (just the villians)a little bit I'm ok with that because they just don't look as good in live action.

With a good Director and cast this show could actually be good

I disagree about changing his costume. This is one of those characters whose costume could make a very good transfer to live action without tampering. If they keep the costume the same as well as the basic concepts of Mark Spector, it may be worth watching.

KEEP THE COSTUME THE WAY IT IS,ID LIKE TO SEE IT DONE LIKE THE OLD TV SERIES THE FLASH COSTUME WHERE U SEE ALL THE MUSCLES..THIS SHOW SHOULD BE BRUTAL..HARDCORE FIGHT SCENES, AND IF YOU DONT SEE BLOOD, ITS NOT MOONKNIGHT.....

I meant the costumes of some of the villains because some of their costumes would just look wierd in ilve action. Like for example Bullseye's costume is ok in the comics but would look dumb in real life.

I agree Moon Knights costume would have to stay the same.

Moon Knight is one character i always thought seemed interesting but never read any of his comics. it souunds from your description that hes a bit likw a Marvel Batman type?
TheShakeBake - 1/17/2009, 8:16 PM
So are they thinking a live action or animated, most likely animated but it would be cool kinda like a knight rider but with superheros..... it could work lol
See Ya, The ShakeBake

Essentially he is, and alot of references you find if u look him up versus reading his comics will lead you to think he is. A few difference's being his maintaining several secret identities at once, which kind of drives him crazy. His powers are also supernatural and are greatly effected by the waxing and waining of the moon. I always liked his costume, but the gear he sometimes used was... well, Batmanish. And his villains weren't very interesting. It was best seeing him interact with other heroes, especially Spidey(who thinks Spector is nuttier than squirrel turds). He was an Avenger once to I think. He could never pull off a solo movie, and his origin and story are structured in a way that they aren't practical for a movie. I think a T.V. series could be good though, especially if you input the occasional cameo's.

Superman4 - 1/17/2009, 8:51 PM

DrFever - 1/17/2009, 9:26 PM
1 season and done.
Matowar - 1/17/2009, 10:42 PM
Yes Moon Knight has always been one of my favorite characters. I hope they do a good job with this and it doesnt turn out like Mutant X. I hope it is dark like Batman. That will make a good series. Wow Im excited!
zinext - 1/17/2009, 10:56 PM
hmm, moon knight having a tv show huh?? Im not 2 exited but ill still watch it!! hopefully they can have some kind of cross-over from the get go, that would get all of our attention, cuz ever comic fan loves a good cross over!!
TheSoulEater - 1/17/2009, 11:08 PM
This is actually a very good serise to make into a show, more so then a movie.
LaffaTaffa - 1/17/2009, 11:44 PM
i like the concept art from Spider-Man Wed of Shadows where he has a symbiote. somehow they should incorperate that into the show. not sure how but i like the idea
LaffaTaffa - 1/17/2009, 11:47 PM
i wanna see the Blade tv series brought back to Spike. i watched every episode and loved it. they even had Brandon J McLaren on it from Power Rangers SPD(Red Ranger). it was a great show.
TheSoulEater - 1/18/2009, 4:24 AM
I thought he had split personality
apex1125 - 1/18/2009, 5:57 AM

DUDE MOONKNIGHT IS LIKE BATMAN,WITH SEVERAL PERSONALITIES, RICH, SUPERSTRONG IN THE MOONLIGHT AND BEAT DOWN BRUTAL KICKING CRIMINAL ASS HARDCORE,
thwip - 1/18/2009, 9:48 AM
as long as the actor playing moon knight doesn't adopt christian bale's emphasima-inspired batman voice.

...batman similarities aside, i remember being sorely disappointed when i bought marvel ultimate alliance for the pc only to realize that moon knight was only available on the wii, xbox360, and PS3.
GUNSMITH - 1/18/2009, 10:31 AM
DUDE HIS VOICE SHOULD BE AUGMENTED IN THE MASK, HES'S GOT THE RESOURCES..I JUST HOPE IT STAYS TRUE TO THE MARVEL UNIVERSE AND HAS SOME DROP INS FROM ALL THE SUPERNATURAL CHARACTERS FROM MARVEL..LOBO BROTHERS, CARRION, VERMIN, CATER TO THE FANS,,,
LEEE777 - 1/18/2009, 1:11 PM
????? THIS WAS SUPPOSED TO HAPPEN LIKE 2 OR 3 YEARS AGO LOL!!! ????? Geez, old news! I'd so f***ing love the show though, as long as they dont fall in the TV Trap, with lots of supporting cast an crap! Should be DARK, HARD, an BAD!!! No soft sH*t! Gotta be LOUD!!! Very cool!!! : ) Hey what happened to X-FACTOR live tv series (yes i know there a british pop idol with the same name). Cant wait for that either!! Really MARVEL should do a Outer Limits type show that can SHOWCASE all there lesser heroes an villains that ppl dont know about to the screen!!! Would be Awesome! Different story an character every week!!! DC/WARNERS should of done this years ago!! The General public can have a roll coaster ride through the MARVEL UNIVERSE!!! ; )
Talontd - 1/18/2009, 1:40 PM
LEEE777-

That "Outer Limits" style show where they introduce a new "lesser known" type character every week is a great idea!!!
adamant877 - 1/18/2009, 2:14 PM
Being an avid Moon Knight fan, and having owned every issue, I guess I don't have to tell you that I am thoroughly excited!
Although, this rumor of a television series has been in circulation for at least over a year... I'll keep my fingers crossed (again), and hope for the best.
adamant877 - 1/18/2009, 2:18 PM
And just out of curiosity, "Superman4", where did you get your source material? The last I head of this was back in 2006??

As a kid, I was always drawn to moon knight, mostly because I found him visually interesting. However once I read the comics I found it reminded me a bit too much of a knock off of the shadow/batman. Still the costume is still pretty kick-ass. Personally I think they should go dark, like a live action version of "spawn the animated series". It's not like the character is such a HUGE franchise that they couldn't risk it by doing something different.
LEEE777 - 1/18/2009, 5:12 PM
CHEERS Talontd!!! Heh heh maybe i should drop my job an go to Marvel studios lol : D Oh yeah ,, FX or HBO should get the MOON KNIGHT show!!!
TucsonRican - 1/18/2009, 11:49 PM
But Night Man was a Malibu character. Who remembers them?
RaKita - 1/19/2009, 1:16 AM
I'd like to see the story from "The Hulk" magazine of the late 70's where Spector's brother is killing nurses with a hatchet. Excellent story that could run over a few weeks.

DON'T SCREW THIS UP!!!!!!!
farmboy - 1/19/2009, 9:34 AM
i love moon knight i hope this is good. if its good they should make a movie
Kurbbsyde - 1/19/2009, 2:44 PM
Moon Knight rocks. He is the marvel universe Batman to me. Then he ups the ante on crazy. The narration would work perfectly with a Moon Knight show. Jeph Loeb should write it. Or even the current writer for the comic. Needs to be more of a serious dark show than funny though. Come On Marvel, make it work like Mutant X
LEEE777 - 1/19/2009, 3:55 PM
Talking NIGHT MAN!!! Does anyone know where to find series 1 & 2 on the web ?!? Ta ; )
Matowar - 1/19/2009, 9:57 PM
Crap that was supposed to happen in 2006. Now I am totally bummin.
saymekian - 1/20/2009, 9:59 AM
Moon Knight is definitely in my top 5 titles each month so seeing him done justice on the boob tube would be awesome.

Although, seeing it [frick]ed up on the boob tube would release the wrath of Khonshu.

It should be done on HBO so they can do it right. Marc Spector is a dark, mentally messed up dude. Not to mention he carves a moon into peoples faces.
Sonny - 1/21/2009, 9:48 AM
I wish this , ( And I know it will never happen )

Make the suits in these movies / shows more computer generated.. they never look right because humans arent that " big " and muscles dont show thru the cloth. Like the way SPAWNS cape was CGI , that thing looked great !
SuperFlyinPwrs - 1/21/2009, 6:06 PM
LOL. Moon Knight is so like Batman except for the powers. I actually did a video that mentioned this.
Aiiwolf - 1/24/2009, 4:23 PM
MOON KNIGHT is an awesome Marvel character...for them to get him right...they should stick with the darker version which are the ones coming out every month right now...they had a reboot and ive been reading up on it....they can take some back stories...but the way I see it..have his CREATION like what they did with Batman begins...and thenw ork your way from there...GOOD writing and taking your time.....none of that rushing and switching writers crap.
adamant877 - 1/24/2009, 4:49 PM
Did I mention that this news is over 2 years old?
(Just curious if anyone caught that.)
