EXCLUSIVE: Marvel Searching For Jewish Zac Efron-Type To Play Moon Knight In Upcoming Disney+ Series

Sep 29, 2019

Exclusive: With casting underway for all Marvel Disney+ shows, I’ve learned a bit about what kind of actor they want for Moon Knight. 

The studio is searching for a Jewish “Zac Efron-type” who is preferably of Israeli descent. Zac Efron was also Marvel’s top choice for Ikaris in ‘The Eternals’ before the role went to Richard Madden, so it comes as no surprise that he’s the ideal Moon Knight. Efron himself is also Jewish, so him landing the role is not out of the question. It makes sense that they want a Jewish actor for the role because in the comics Moon Knight (aka Marc Spector) is the son of a Rabbi. 

Moon Knight is a vigilante with Dissociative Identity Disorder who was resurrected by and gained powers from the Egyptian god Knoshu. 

Not only is Marvel Studios producing more and more shows, Marvel Television is also being pushed to the wayside, and I’ve heard that, in a few years, it won’t continue to operate the same way it has been. ‘Ms. Marvel’ is another series on Marvel Studios’ D+ slate, and sources close to the project have indicated that Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige is mulling over rebooting a slew of particular characters to include in it, characters that received their own Marvel Television show a few years back that neither fans nor critics favored.
