Actor Ross Marquand, who plays Aaron on AMC’s The Walking Dead has expressed his desire to join the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The actor recently spoke with Adventures in Poor Taste and talked about how he would love to be the person who brings Marvel’s Moon Knight Character to the big screen.
“Oh yes–Moon Knight! It’s tough because a lot of my friends have said Moon Knight is essentially just Marvel’s answer to Batman, but I don’t agree with that. I agree that there are similarities, but Moon Knight was a mercenary–kind of a gun for hire who didn’t really have much regard for people before he had his moment of awakening, I guess. And Bruce was always a good guy–even as a kid, he was torn by revenge, but he wasn’t this bloodthirsty killer like Moon Knight was. So I think that, coupled with what they’ve been doing the last 15 years with the character–going into the dissociative identity disorder, really calling in to question if everything happening is all in his head, is he actually a vigilante killer or did he die in Egypt? It brings up a slew of questions, and that to me has never really been delved into in any comic book character before–the idea of, is any of this actually happening? Is he crazy? Is he killing good people? Is he actually dead in Egypt? Those are such amazing questions and I don’t feel like any comic book series before or since has really tapped into that. So for me, playing a crazy superhero would be awesome. So Moon Knight, Moon Knight for sure.”
If Marquand gets his wish to play Moon Knight, it won’t be the actor’s first time in the MCU as he portrayed the stone-keeper, perhaps better known as Red Skull in Avengers: Infinity War.
Moon Knight is considered by many to be Marvel’s counterpart to Batman, having similar abilities to the Dark Knight including being an expert detective, extensive martial arts and combat training, as well as enhanced speed and strength which he gains subject to the moon cycle.
