Batman and Moon Knight in "Winner Takes the Cave!"

It would be interesting to see Marvel put Moon Knight up on the big screen and present to the viewers their version of a Batman-type film.  Moon Knight's costume would be a huge challenge, I think.  It looks great in the comics, but I don't know how they could make a white uniform give off the cool shadows that it does on the page.  Then there's the mask, which completely obscures the character's face, and we know how Hollywood hates that.  Despite these hurdles, I'd love to see an attempt to bring him to live action, either in the movies or on Netflix with the other street level Marvel shows.

Who drew these? Batman looks like Jim Aparo, but I think MK may be a different artist.

Check the labels, that's where I credit the artists, in this case Aparo and Bill Sienkiewicz.

I was under the impression that Moon Knight's costume was supposed to be silvery, like the moon. Granted, the Silver Surfer is obviously silver and he looks quite different. I've always ascribed that to a difference in surface texture (smooth, reflective metallic skin versus comparatively rough painted cloth).
