RUMOR: Marvel's MOON KNIGHT May Enlist Another Disney+ Actor To Play The Main Hero

<font color=red>RUMOR:</font> Marvel's MOON KNIGHT May Enlist Another Disney+ Actor To Play The Main Hero

It was only recently reported that Harry Potter star Daniel Radcliffe was up for the titular role in Marvel's Moon Knight but a new report seems to believe that he has some competition. Read on for more!

Disney+ hasn't been around long but it already feels like a staple in homes thanks to the wholesome catalogue of content along with the launchpad series The Mandalorian, Star Wars series that helped send subscription numbers for Mickey's new service sky high.

Sure, one can argue that the most recognizable thing from The Mandalorian is The Child (Baby Yoda) thanks to all of the memes taking over the internet and his cuteness factor being up to eleven at all times - but the show's true success comes from talented visionary Jon Favreau (The Lion King, The Jungle Book) who coincidentally also was the first director of a Marvel Studios movie - Iron Man - and helped set up an amazing decade of cinema to come. However, The Mandalorian's strong following is also likely in part due to the incredible actor who plays the part - Pedro Pascal (Game of Thrones).

With the first season of The Mandalorian officially behind us, subscribers to the streaming service are gearing up for the upcoming Marvel Studios shows under Kevin Feige and hoping that they're up to par with Mando's adventures with Favreau. Fans are looking forward to Falcon and the Winter Soldier and WandaVision in 2020, Loki, Hawkeye, and What If? in 2021, and Moon Knight, Ms. Marvel, and She-Hulk by 2022. It's worth noting that because WandaVision just moved up at least six months to its new 2020 date that we will probably see one of the undated series from 2022 get bumped up to 2021 - and with all the recent casting rumors and reports surrounding Moon Knight, that wouldn't come as a surprise to be the one being prioritized.

It wasn't long ago that it was reported that Daniel Radcliffe might be up for the role of Moon Knight himself in the upcoming series, and if Robert Pattinson can become Batman he surely has a shot - but a new report from Mikey Sutton of Geekosity states that Disney+ might be looking to capitalize on a star they already have in-house - none other than The Mandalorian's Mando/Din Djarin himself - Pedro Pascal. Read the scoop below to see the full report.

MCU SCOOP – 1/1/20: The Mandalorian‘s star is truly beginning to soar. According to several inside sources I spoke to, the Mandalorian himself — Pedro Pascal — is on the list of actors being considered to play Moon Knight for the MCU. They stress that no talks or any negotiations have begun yet but Pascal clicks the right buttons for the role. (That he has no issues hiding his face for long stretches of screen time is certainly a benefit as well.) As streaming TV programs have much more flexible schedules, if Pascal is cast as Moon Knight, there will not be any scheduling conflicts with the hugely successful Mandalorian. Before anybody jumps the gun, he is on the list but hasn’t been selected yet. Stay tuned. And wherever you go, there you are.

What do you think? Would Pascal make a better Moon Knight than Radcliffe, or would you prefer someone else entirely? Personally, after seeing him in Game of Thrones, I'd love to watch him tackle Kraven the Hunter in the upcoming Spider-Man film slated for July 2021, but I'll take what I can get. Let us know what you think in the comments below!


After the stories of Jango and Boba Fett, another warrior emerges in the Star Wars universe. The Mandalorian is set after the fall of the Empire and before the emergence of the First Order. The series depicts a lone bounty hunter in the outer reaches of the galaxy far from the authority of the New Republic.

The Mandalorian is now streaming exclusively on Disney+.
