MOON KNIGHT And SHE-HULK Leaked Details Reveal New Intel On Abomination, Blade, Daredevil, Dracula, & More
A major Marvel Studios Phase 4 plot leak has led to some huge new details about Moon Knight and She-Hulk being revealed, and it includes intel about Blade, Daredevil, Titania, and even The Wrecking Crew!
Over the weekend, the Marvel Studios ship was once again the subject of massive leaks. New looks at Spider-Man: No Way Home's costumes were revealed, and have now been followed by plot and cast details for Disney+ TV shows Moon Knight and She-Hulk.
This information has supposedly been verified, but as with any rumor, everything you read here should be taken with a pinch of salt. It's all pretty believable, though, and very, very exciting.
There are details on plans for characters like Blade, Daredevil, Dracula, and The Wrecking Crew, along with fresh insights into how Jennifer Walters becomes She-Hulk and Marc Spector's transformation into Moon Knight. 2022 promises to be a crazy year for the MCU, and many of these rumors could be confirmed at the upcoming Disney+ Day on November 12.
As you might expect, lots of potential spoilers do follow from here!
5. Moon Knight Will Introduce Vampires...And Blade!
The Blade reboot starring Mahershala Ali was announced at Comic-Con in 2019, but Marvel Studios hasn't rushed to bring the Daywalker back to the big screen. The project is starting to take shape, but it sounds like the anti-hero will make his MCU sooner than expected...in Moon Knight!
Ali is reportedly set to appear in the Disney+ series, while Dracula will be a "major" villain.
The leaker who shared this intel believes that Ethan Hawke is going to be revealed as Dracula later in Moon Knight, something fans have suspected for some time. It's interesting that the show will include bloodsuckers, but no huge surprise when the plan appears to be embracing the MCU's supernatural side here (explaining Werewolf by Night's planned cameo role).
4. She-Hulk's Supporting Cast
After returning in Captain America: Civil War, Avengers: Infinity War, and Black Widow, we'll see more of William Hurt in She-Hulk. That only makes sense following the events of The Incredible Hulk, but don't expect Bruce Banner's former flame, Betty Ross, to appear.
Unfortunately, there are no plans for Liv Tyler to reprise her role as the scientist. So much time has passed, though, that revisiting that romance runs the risk of feeling tacked on at this stage (in all honesty, Bruce had more of a thing with Natasha Romanoff than Betty).
Jon Bass (Baywatch) reportedly has a mystery role, while Charlie Cox is indeed expected to appear as Daredevil. He'll be a different Variant than the one we spent time with in the Netflix series.
3. She-Hulk's Villains
As expected, Tim Roth reportedly has a lead role in She-Hulk, though it's unclear how much time will be split between his human form as Emil Blonsky and the monstrous Abomination.
The moderators were told prior to the news breaking in the trades that Jameela Jamil will be the show's lead villain, Titania, while an additional four actors will make use of mo-cap technology. Needless to say, that lines up with reports that The Wrecking Crew will be part of the Disney+ series (others include Mark Ruffalo, Tatiana Maslany, Roth, and Jamil).
The Wrecking Crew are bigger than your average size men, but it's surprising Marvel Studios didn't just cast muscular actors; perhaps this will be how Kingpin is eventually reimagined?
2. Moon Knight's Surprise Cameos
Khonshu is one of the Gods of Celestial Heliopolis, worshipped by the ancient Egyptians. In ancient times, Khonshu posed as a human Pharaoh in the city of Thebes, and later resurrected Marc Spector and blessed him with the superpowers that would make him a vigilante (the comic books, however, have always played coy with whether Marc just imagines seeing the God).
A big name Egyptian actor has supposedly been cast as Knonshu, so we're anticipating him being an integral part of this story. This gives Marvel Studios the opportunity to delve into the MCU's mythology in a meaningful way, and it's worth noting that the God has a history with Kang the Conqueror Variant Rama-Tut.
Elsewhere, Dora Milaje member Ayo will return after crossing paths with Marc when they pursue the same target. She's said to be responsible for bringing the vigilante back to the U.S.
1. Hulk's New Status Quo
Several months before a human Bruce Banner appeared in Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings' mid-credits scene, moderators were told that Professor Hulk reverts to that form to give Jennifer Walters a blood transfusion. However, he then struggles to go green again.
Jennifer helps him with that, and this should give She-Hulk gets the lion's share of the spotlight. We'll see Bruce and Jennifer fight in Hulk form to train, later getting drinks at a bar.
Most exciting for fans is the news that The Hulk will finally unleash a Thunderclap; that's a move we haven't seen anywhere near often enough in the MCU. For whatever reason, it's suggested that the scene could be cut, but we really hope that doesn't end up being the case.
