“Now we have the problem that they tell us Logan is a great movie,” Hawke said in 2018. “Well, it’s a great superhero movie. It still involves people in tights with metal coming out of their hands. It’s not Bresson. It’s not Bergman. But they talk about it like it is.”
Hopefully Hawke’s decision to sign on for the MCU is a good sign for Moon Knight fans. Marvel first announced the Moon Knight series at D23 in August 2019. At one time, Kevin Feige indicated that Moon Knight and some of Marvel’s other Disney+ series’ such as She-Hulk and Ms. Marvel would all wrap production by the end of 2020. Ultimately, the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic delayed that timetable and many of the original production dates were pushed back.
