6 Comic Book Knights Who Aren’t From the Moon

The Moon Knight TV show arrives on Disney+ next week and we’re all excited to watch! Initial reviews are positive, and there’s a lot of crazy angles to explore with Moon Knight. What probably won’t get explored is his status as a knight. Where’s his suit of armor? Where’s his lance? And horse? A sad knight indeed.

TV will never be the same!

I’m going to level with you fine folks. I was working on a different List of Six about a different topic, and then my computer suffered some kind of connection issue and I lost pretty much everything. And we all know that feeling of losing hours of writing/work. I didn’t want to slog through rewriting everything, so I scrambled for a quickie list I could throw together. The Moon Knight TV show comes out next week. What about moon-based superheroes? Nope, nothing much to work with. What about…comic book knights? Heck yes!

Join me after the jump for six superhero knights in this hastily slapped together blog listicle!

Epic Doctor Strange Trailer Leads a Bunch From the Super Bowl!

The Super Bowl came and went last night and my hopes and dreams were crushed once again. I am a lifelong Cincinnati Bengals fan, and they have never won a Super Bowl. They came within one minute of winning last night, and it was dashed. Such is life. Thankfully, I don’t care about football, and only really care about new movie and TV show trailers!

First up is a brand new, totally bonkers trailer for Doctor Strange and the Multiverse of Madness! Holy cow, this trailer is beyond crazy.

I don’t even want to begin to speculate what we’re going to see. There’s a ton of spoilers and leaks out there on the web, and I’m trying my best to avoid them. But just from that trailer around, this movie looks hella bonkers and I am 100% here for it! Doctor Strange and the Multiverse of Madness comes to theaters on May 6.

Next up is a new, short spot for the Moon Knight TV show.

This still looks good. I’ve never been a big Moon Knight fan, so I’m not as hyped or pumped as other viewers. But I’m definitely going to watch to see what’s in store. The Moon Knight costume is slowly winning me over, step by step. Moon Knight arrives on TV on March 30.

Sonic the Hedgehog 2 is coming and I am hesitantly excited about this one.

I didn’t care for the first movie. It was more just generic live action cartoon cliche than it was a Sonic movie. But the sequel features both Tails and Knuckles. I have been a fan of Knuckles since I was a wee boy, and he appears to be incredibly awesome in this film. Like, it’s blowing my mind that this badass Knuckles the Echidna is showing up in a movie and everybody is excited. So we’ll see! Sonic the Hedgehog 2 arrives in theaters on April 8.

Then we’ve got Nope, the new horror film by Jordan Peele.

Looks freaky and scary, so it should be a good time. I guess it’s about an alien invasion? Nope stands for “Not of Planet Earth” maybe? Either way, should be a good time at the movies! Nope arrives on July 22.

Moon Knight Looking All Fancy

The next Disney+ Marvel Studios show is going to be Moon Knight, and last night we got the first full trailer for the series! It’s dark, spooky, weird and is raising hopes for a truly wild show.

I am no big Moon Knight fan. Just not my cup of tea. I read that awesome Warren Ellis series a few years ago, but this show doesn’t look to follow that storyline. So I have no idea what to expect! It could be anything, and it’s definitely going to be weird. My hopes are definitely up. What’d you all think of this trailer?

Moon Knight comes to Disney+ on March 30.

Oscar Isaac Confirmed as Moon Knight

This has been known for a while now, but wasn’t as confirmed as I usually like when I write about superhero movie casting. But now Marvel Studios has confirmed that Oscar Isaac will be Moon Knight in the upcoming TV show!

I thought the bottom left was Isaac’s hair

And great! I like Isaac. I like Moon Knight. And the character has gone through a lot of modern revisions that make him especially cool. So I have high hopes for this series. And that’s about it. I think the show is in pre-production right now. It’s a year or two out from our TV screens. But I have total faith in this casting and this show.

Those Geniuses! They’ve Done It! My Ms. Marvel Dreams Are Alive!

Sweet Joseph McGillicutty! If you thought Marvel was worried about losing Spider-Man, they are apparently more than ready to just continue full steam ahead with everything else they’ve got at the ready! At the D23 convention tonight, they have announced new TV shows for Ms. Marvel, Moon Knight and She-Hulk!

They’re coming to the Disney+ streaming service in the years ahead, so they’ll be made by Marvel Studios and not Marvel TV.

 

MsMarvel TV 02

Moon Knight TV 02

She Hulk TV 02

We don’t have any details yet on what these shows will contain. Maybe we’ll learn more as the weekend continues, and I’ll gladly share anything that I learn. But man, this is damn exciting.

I think a Marvel Studios-produced TV show is the perfect way to introduce Kamala Khan, especially if it means she can jump to the movies eventually (Young Avengers!).

And while I’ve been previously opposed to bringing She-Hulk into the MCU, I think she’d work perfectly with the new Professor Hulk we’ve got!

What a time to be alive! Here’s hoping I make it to 40 so I can see all of these! Just hook it to my veins!
