Disney+ casting call for Marc Spector the mercenary aka Moon Knight describes an actor in his 40s and 50s, where Keanu is the perfect fit as per most of the fans. Here are more details on Moon Knight Disney+ series release date, cast details and Keanu Reeves in the lead role.
Keanu Reeves as Moon Knight in MCU for Disney+ Series
Keanu Reeves has been approached by Marvel for the last few years as Kevin Feige wants the action star in MCU. Reeves is also rumored to play Wolverine, Ghost Rider, Dr. Doom and several other characters as nothing is fixed at this point. Feige says he doesn’t know when will Keanu join the MCU or which character will he play, but they are trying to figure it out.
Fans are in favor of Keanu Reeves playing Moon Knight as the character is famous for his fight scenes and there is no one better than the John Wick star in terms of stunt work. The only problem with Keanu as Moon Knight is that the actor is currently busy filming Matrix 4, John Wick 4-5, and hence Marvel has to adjust with his schedule.
Moon Knight Cast Details and Release Date
Moon Knight was earlier scheduled to go on floors this November but the COVID-19 pandemic has delayed everything. Falcon and the Winter Soldier, WandaVision and Loki on Disney+ are all affected by the coronavirus and will come out later than their original schedule.

It means that even Moon Knight could start late and the show will release somewhere in late 2021 or early 2022 as per the reports. Jean-Paul DuChamp and Marlene Alraune are expected to be cast in Moon Knight as they will play Marc Specter’s best friend and love interest respectively. If Keanu Reeves actually says yes to the role, fans of Moon Knight would be glad to welcome Neo in the MCU.
