Nightwing and Moon Knight



It will be interesting to see whether Moon Knight ever gets a chance at a film treatment.  There would definitely be the same kinds of comparison to Batman that the character had when he first appeared in comics, so Marvel would have to emphasize the elements that make him unique.  The costume would be another hurdle.  It looks very cool and works well in comics, but I imagine it would be tough to translate an all-white costume to live action.

Nightwing has been enjoying new life as an animated character, thanks to the leap forward in time on Young Justice.  I am glad they kept with the blue on black color scheme for his costume rather than the red on black from the current comics.  The red just doesn't work as well as the blue for me - and it reminds me too much of Chris O'Donnel's suit from Batman and Robin.

Yeah, you hit it out of the park with this pairing man. A real natural choice.

As for a Moon Knight movie, idk, but maybe more likely we'd see an animated film or animated short than a full on live action flick. But I could be wrong, since they did make 3 Blade films, so.......

Another pairing used in Amalgam Comics--the result was MOONWING, but it was "Jason Todd" under the hood. See "Bruce Wayne, Agent of SHIELD" for more...

a Moonknight film, careful what you wish for! MK is one of those awesome, unique characters that could easily be ruined on film in the wrong hands, even with the best of intentions.
