MOON KNIGHT: Speculation Mounts That Hulk Might Appear After Mark Ruffalo Was Spotted In Budapest
Could we see Mark Ruffalo make an appearance in the upcoming Moon Knight Disney+ series? That's the theory doing the rounds online after the actor was photographed at the same hotel as star Oscar Isaac.
We know that Mark Ruffalo is set to reprise the role of Bruce Banner/The Hulk for the She-Hulk show, but could we also see him make his presence felt in another upcoming Disney+ series?
Moon Knight is currently filming in Budapest, and fan Dora Magyari managed to snap a couple of selfies which she's now shared to Instagram. The first was with Ruffalo, and then later on she posed for a photo with Oscar Isaac outside the very same hotel.
This doesn't confirm anything, of course, but we know that She-Hulk recently wrapped production in Atlanta, so unless Ruffalo is in Hungary for some other business and just happens to be staying at the same hotel as Isaac, there's a decent enough chance he is set to appear in the show in some capacity.
We still don't know a whole lot about Moon Knight (you can check out a leaked first look at Marc Spector here), but adding Banner to the mix would be one way to establish some connectivity to the wider MCU. A rumor recently did the rounds that The Falcon and The Winter Soldier's Emily VanCamp might also show up as Sharon Carter, but again, nothing has been confirmed.
Marvel's Moon Knight has Cairo 678 director Mohamed Diab behind the camera, and we recently found out that the Disney+ series has also enlisted Justin Benson & Aaron Moorhead (The Endless, Synchronic) to helm additional episodes. Jeremy Slater (The Umbrella Academy; The Exorcist) will serve as showrunner, and is leading the show's writing team.
Plot details are still under wraps, but the small-screen adaptation is expected to stick pretty close to the basic premise of the comic, with Marc Spector, a highly skilled mercenary who has numerous alter-egos, channelling the power of the Egyptian moon god Khonshu to fight crime in LA.
A recent synopsis stated that "the action-adventure features a complex vigilante who suffers from dissociative identity disorder. The multiple identities who live inside him are distinct characters who appear against a backdrop of Egyptian iconography."
