“Moon Knight”: Jeremy Sister Comments on Hiring, Promises Fans “One Hell of A Ride”

At The Walt Disney Company‘s D23 Expo in August 2019, then-Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige announced that they were in development on three Disney+ live-action series: Ms. Marvel, Moon Knight, and She-Hulk. Now we flash ahead a few months (which in the world of geek/pop culture can feel like years) and some things have clearly changed…

With Feige now pretty much “Overlord of All Things Marvel” (not his official title), Jeph Loeb is setting sails from Marvel  – and probably to an exclsuive deal with WarnerMedia‘s HBO Max running their DC Universe “hub” (our bold prediction).

We know Marvel’s Helstrom is moving forward but Marvel’s Ghost Rider is DOA, and then you have Marvel’s Cloak & Dagger ending its run. The adult animated Marvel block spearheaded by Loeb for Hulu featuring Howard the Duck, M.O.D.O.K., Hit-Monkey, Tigra & Dazzler (and team-up series Marvel’s The Offenders) appears to be a go – for now.

Thankfully, it appears the change hasn’t impacted the three anounced series, with The Umbrella Academy series creator Jeremy Sister being tapped to develop and lead the writers’ room on Moon Knight.

Sister has responded to his hiring via Twitter, offering up some of his Marvel Comics “geek street cred” and making Moon Knight fans a promise…

“I was seven when I bought my first Marvel comic, and my life was changed on the spot. It’s no exaggeration to say that joining the MCU is the single greatest honor of my career. I’m thrilled and terrified and deliriously happy.

And while I won’t be able tell you anything in regards to story or casting, I *can* tell that you we’ve assembled a room full of brilliant writers who truly love this character, and we’re all hard at work crafting something special for you.

So stick around and stay tuned. Moon Knight is on the way, and it’s going to be one hell of a ride.”

Sister isn’t the only major name joining Disney+’s trifecta of new Marvel Studios series: Emmy award-winner Jessica Gao (Adult Swim’s Rick and Morty) was also named to develop and lead the writers’ room on She-Hulk.
