With Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige recently revealing that he wants Keanu Reeves to be a part of the MCU, there have been rumours of him playing the clocked superhero. Moon Knight in an upcoming Disney plus series. But these are still rumours.
We hope it’s true as for a change we would see Hollywood’s nicest bloke doing something else other than his two iconic characters, Neo and John Wick. But what if there are other actors creators could choose from for the Fist Of Khonshu? Here’s us with a few suggestions of actors who can play Moon Knight better than Keanu Reeves.
Here’s us with a few suggestions of actors who can play Moon Knight better than Keanu Reeves:
Moon Knight Candidate 1- Matt Damon
Moon knight is an all American superhero. And who else to play the titular character than the all American actor? Damon has already proved his mettle in The Bourne series. So he can play the action hero with ease. As for the superhero in question, with his physique and mannerisms, Damon can play Moon Knight better than Keanu Reeves.
Moon Knight Candidate 2- Mark Wahlberg
Ok ok, we know Wahlberg has not done an action movie lately. But we surely believe he can off Moon Knight better than Keanu Reeves. Here’s why. Marky Mark is known to play intense characters such as in The Departed. He surely has the calibre to play a badass superhero.
Moon knight Candidate 3- Christian Bale
He has already played an iconic superhero before. So we know the lengths he would go to play a character. Moon knight is like Batman if he had a Split Personally Disorder! So we think our beloved caped crusader can also play the clocked crusader efficiently. Christian Bale instead of Keanu Reeves for Moon Knight? We’ll put our money on it.
Moon Knight Candidate 4- Nicholas Cage
Yeah, we know went a little far with this one but here’s why we think Nick Cage can play Moon Knight better than Keanu Reeves. No matter how much you thrash him for his over the top performances, Cage has given us one of the biggest cult superheroes, Ghost Rider. Don’t believe us? We’ll look at the numbers the 2007 film was able to garner at the box office.
Moon Knight Candidate 5- Hugo Weaving
So, it’s Neo vs Agent Smith then? So be it! Hugo has the potential to pull of Moon Knight better than Keanu Reeves and for good reason. His no-nonsense persona on-screen fits the titular superhero like a glove. Plus, who can forget his portrayal of the masked vigilante in V For Vendetta? Dodge that Neo!
Moon Knight Candidate 6- Micheal Fassbender
The man has rarely portrayed a lead hero, let alone a superhero. But we firmly believe that Micheal Fassbender can play Moon Knight better than Keanu Reeves. His tall stature would suit the superhero’s alias, Marc Spector. Additionally, he has already played the role of an assassin in a cloak in Assassin’s Creed. So he is definitely a strong contender.
Moon Knight Candidate 7- Tom Hardy
So what if the superhero is American. With Tom’s range in accents, you wouldn’t even know the difference. Hardy has pulled the almost unplayable Bane in The Dark Knight Rises. His versatility can certainly lead him from playing the Dark Knight’s archenemy to a Knight himself. His ability to morph himself into any character given to him makes him a strong candidate for playing Moon Knight better than Keanu Reeves
Moon Knight Candidate 8- Ryan Gosling
His portrayal of serious and intense characters in films like Drive and Blue Valentine rose him to fame. As far as the clocked superhero is concerned, Ryan Gosling can play Moon Knight better than Keanu Reeves. The titular character stays in dark and fights crime like a pro. Gosling badass persona reflects that of Moon Knight. So being the professional that he is, the said character should be a cakewalk for him.
Moon Knight Candidate 9- Channing Tatum
Sure, he’s played the goofball cop in the Jump Street series. But the fact that he can play intense roles with that much ease is testified by his power-packed performance in Foxcatcher. His huge physique also matches with the superhero. So we can’t see a reason why Channing Tatum can’t play Moon Knight better than Keanu Reeves.
Moon knight Candidate 10- Chris Pine
This American actor has all the ingredients to be a superhero. The physique, the looks, the skills, you name it! His portrayal of James T. Kirk in Star Trek is still fresh in our memories. And he’s won our hearts with his honest portrayal of Steve Trevor in Wonder Woman. So, for someone playing Moon Knight better than Keanu Reeves, Pine would just be fine!
