Once Hollywood begins to reopen, Moon Knight is one of the shows Marvel Studios will get right back to work on. Although the series was far from filming, the Kevin Feige-led outfit did manage to finish writing the Disney+ series over quarantine. Sooner or later, the show will begin the casting process — if it hasn't already — and gear up for an eventual shoot later this year.
Still, quite some time ahead of the show's release, fans began talking about Marc Spector and his multiple identities Saturday afternoon. The Moon Knight chatter got so dense, in fact, the cult classic Marvel character started trending on Twitter.
When we spoke with Moon Knight writer Beau DeMayo last year, the scribe made sure to point out just how dedicated the entire writer's room was to the character and his legacy. "All I can really say is, one, [showrunner] Jeremy Slater is a frigging badass. He's so smart. He is a great, awesome guy to work for," DeMayo said. "And then, I know it sounds like pandering but it is so true that, as a fan coming into Marvel, it is so amazing to see the... we've heard it before with Kevin [Feige] and everybody's just... They do really care."

IDK why Moon Knight is trending, but if there's anything with him, I demand he say "I know you're here Dracula, you giant nerd. Where's my god-damned MONEY?"— Plain, Simple Skeptic. Snark Elemental (@VScreaming) June 27, 2020

Well, There You Have It
There's literally nothing that could get me to subscribe for Disney+, even just for a free trial, outside of a Moon Knight show (and a GOOD continuation of Daredevil). Since Moon Knight is trending, please do it Disney. I'll give money to your evil ass if you do it.— Nicklybear (@nicklybear_) June 27, 2020
