Disney+’s ‘Moon Knight’ Series Set To Begin Production This Year

Disney


The future of the Marvel Cinematic Universe on Disney+ continues to unfold, as reports from The Geeks WorldWide indicate that the Moon Knight series will begin production in Atlanta.

Moon Knight tells the story of Marc Spector, a former Marine and CIA operative who suffers from multiple personality disorder (also known as dissociative identity disorder) and believes that he was resurrected and subsequently powered the Egyptian god Knoshu.

Jeremy Slater, perhaps best known for his work on Umbrella Academy and The Exorcist, will serve as showrunner.

At this time, the lead actor in the series has yet to be cast.

Marvel Studios’ ‘Moon Knight’ series has a new filming start date and location.

Production on the Disney+ show will begin in mid-November at Pinewood Studios in Atlanta, Georgia. The series was originally rumored to begin filming in August at Pinewood Studios UK. The other Marvel Studios shows are also filming in Atlanta, such as The Falcon and the Winter Soldier, WandaVision, and Loki.

Casting for the lead role is already heating up, with Marvel searching for a Jewish Zac Efron-type actor, as we previously reported. [via The Geeks WorldWide]

The Falcon and The Winter Soldier will be the first of the live-action Disney+ series to debut when it airs this August. Then, in the Spring of 2021, WandaVision — which has been described as “part classic sitcom, part Marvel epic” by MCU head Kevin Feige — hits the streamer. Additionally, that same spring, Loki and What If…? will also premiere. Finally, in the Fall of 2021, Hawkeye will debut.

At this time, while it is unclear when Moon Knight will debut, Fall or Winter 2021 seems like a reasonable bet given that production is beginning this November.
