MIDNIGHT SONS Rumor May Reveal The Characters Who'll Make Up Marvel Studios' Supernatural Team

A new rumor doing the rounds online may give us a better idea of which characters Marvel Studios plans to include in its roster for the Midnight Suns movie...

We've been hearing reports that Marvel Studios might be planning a Midnight Sons (or Midnight Suns if they go with the more recent title) movie for quite a while (shortly after the Moon Knight finale aired), and we may now have a better idea of which characters are going to make up the team when the project does finally begin to take shape.

Though a Midnight Sons movie has yet to be officially announced, Marvel Studios assembling its roster of supernatural/magical characters for a team-up event would seem like a smart move.

Multiple characters have been a part of or associated with the team in the comics over the years, but according to The Cosmic Circus' Alex Perez, the MCU's line-up will most likely include: Wong, Moon Knight, Ghost Rider, Blade, Werewolf by Night, & Man-Thing.

"Other names I’ve heard, from most to least likely, include Black Knight, Scarlet Scarab, Elsa Bloodstone, Dr. Strange, and even Agatha Harkness. But if I had to guess how many members I’d expect for this team lineup, I’d say between 6-9 members."

Moon Knight star Oscar Isaac showed interest in reprising his role(s) for a Midnight Suns project in a recent interview.

"I thought there was an interesting opportunity with Midnight Sons. There’s such interesting characters in there, and now that we’ve set the groundwork with learning who Marc, Steven, Jake are, it could be an interesting opportunity to see him as part of a team and what that dynamic would be. So I think that would be exciting, I think for me, I definitely hope there’s some room to explore that possibility."

As for who could wind up in the director's chair, we've previously heard that both Michael Giacchino (Werewolf By Night) and Fede Alvarez (Alien: Romulus) are on the studio's radar.

We'd say a Midnight Sons movie (or Disney+ series) is definitely going to materialize at some point, but given how the current Marvel Cinematic Universe slate is looking as we head towards the next two Avengers films, it may not enter development for quite a while.

What do you make of this rumor? Would you like to see Giacchino or Alvarez direct? Which characters do you think should be part of the team? Drop us a comment down below.

"Stephen Strange, AKA Doctor Strange, gathers a loose-knit confederation of mystically powered heroes, originally called the Nine and eventually the Midnight Sons, to serve as mankind's first line of defense against the Mother of Demons, Lilith, and her children, the Lilin."

Blade? Who's that?

@ProfessorWhy - Blade… you know… the guy that for some reason no competent Hollywood writer can come up with a story for. He looks like Simon Phoenix but with black hair and a goatee. You know who I’m talking about now?

They are really pushing Wong aren’t they? Don’t they know we want Dr. Strange?

@massdeath - maybe Cumberbatch has become tired and too expensive for the role, could see Benedict Wong be cheaper and more enthusiastic. It's all about opportunity in Hollywood, Cumberbatch could play Bond if he wanted. Wong is certainly a few tiers lower and is still excited by his role.

@massdeath - but Wong gives them that sweet esg money

@massdeath - I don't mind it at all. He has showed up in so many multiple different projects now that I kinda start to see him as this Saga's Coulson

@bkmeijer1 - plus he's an awesome character, played by a great actor. The more Wong we get the better I'd say.

@massdeath - Then Strange becomes the de facto lead. I like Wong better because it leaves the team as more of a collective.

@massdeath - what are you talking about? I LOVED those Wong comics growing up.

@Ryguy88 - Should be Doctor Strange or Magik but what do you and I know.

@bkmeijer1 - Exactly. I wondering when we'll get the rumor that Madisynn is actually Mephisto lol...the spelling has a M, but it's not what you think 😄

@massdeath - the Only think I don't like a bout Wong is that he is too much like Dr Strange, he should be more like the Ancient One in terms of using Magic diferently.

@The1st - would be hilarious how many people that's gonna upset

Why would Wong be on the team? Come on now. Give that spot to Black Knight and/or Elsa Bloodstone.
Vigor
Vigor - 6/9/2024, 8:17 AM
@BreakTheCode - because he's the sorcerer supreme. Strange [as the sorcerer supreme] was on the team in the comics

Agree on Elsa
Black knight needs to be an avenger first
BreakTheCode
BreakTheCode - 6/9/2024, 8:20 AM
@Vigor - Yeah I get that. But Wong should be no more than a side or supporting character.
Vigor
Vigor - 6/9/2024, 8:25 AM
@BreakTheCode - in the mcu, he's a major character
BreakTheCode
BreakTheCode - 6/9/2024, 8:52 AM
@Vigor - Yeah well he shouldn’t be.

Switch Wong for Dr. Strange and add Agatha and that’s the lineup that will rock.. I wouldn’t be opposed to Punisher either.
Blergh

@massdeath - Frankencastle would be a hilarious and badass addition.
bkmeijer1
bkmeijer1 - 6/9/2024, 9:11 AM
@massdeath - I don't mind Wong on the team. Strange is probably gonna do Avengers stuff, so Wong focusing on the supernatural team kinda makes sense imo
Vigor

My favorite rumor. Rally hope this comes true

@Vigor - given how much it’s been rumored , I wouldn’t be surprised if there is some truth to it.

Blergh - 6/9/2024, 8:15 AM
I was hoping they'd introduce the team in a third Doctor Strange movie that sees Strange turn "evil" and get hunted down by them. Seeing Strange struggle with his morality and eventually even his mortality he sacrifices himself against Dormammus's corruption and becomes a spectre and leader of the team.

Obviously it's Blade, Moon Knight, Black Knight, Werewolf, Swamp Thing for the male members; Elsa Bloodstone, Clea, Magik and perhaps even Nina Price as the thematic or even romantic foil to Blade for the female team.
Vigor
Vigor - 6/9/2024, 8:18 AM
@Blergh - a ghost rider hunting strange movie is the movie I would pay premium to see

But it may end up being too similar to Wanda hunting Strange
Origame
Origame - 6/9/2024, 8:18 AM
If true they better keep it sons. The point of the name is that they were born of the night in a sense. Suns makes no sense, and is especially dumb if they aren't gonna give us a female member.
Ryguy88
Ryguy88 - 6/9/2024, 12:25 PM
@Origame - "Midnight Thems"
Origame
Origame - 6/9/2024, 12:30 PM
@Ryguy88 - "midnight ze"

And yes, that's a real pronoun they use 🙄
AvalonX
AvalonX - 6/9/2024, 12:56 PM
@Origame - There is zero chance there isn't a female member. I'd expect at least 2. Remember all those rumors about Blades daughter? Then they will race swap Elsa. Either Blades daughter or Elsa will be gay.
Origame
Origame - 6/9/2024, 12:58 PM
@AvalonX - exactly.

"...Rumor May Reveal..."

Or it may not.
TheVisionary25
TheVisionary25 - 6/9/2024, 8:27 AM
Honestly , I could see this being the lineup more or less (which makes this less of a “scoop” and more of just common sense speculation imo).

However wasn’t the recent rumor that Wong is creating a new Avengers so is he gonna be on both teams then if that’s true?.

Anyway , i hope we do get Black Knight in this atleast if we aren’t getting him in Blade because I like the idea of the Ebony Blade being connected to Dracula in this version…

It will also make him this more supernatural/mystical hero in the MCU which has precedence in the comics.

I'd be down for Black Knight if it means making something of that post credits that so far hasn't gone anywhere.

Oh for furks sake.

Just stop teasing my d!ck with vague promises of something great to come.

They have been waving this Midnight Sons bullsh!t at us for 7 years now.

Rumors & promises of hand job nirvana just to keep our hopes up and brains busy.

Loved Giacchino’s work on Werewolf By Knight. I loved that the color version had a technicolor look to it - I want to see more of that.

Pretty much the line up I'd want, except I'd put Wong in a more Nick Fury type of role and have Elsa or Agatha on the team. 6 is all you need. Obviously all their respective supporting cast members would probably make appearances too, and I'd probably suggest Blackheart or Lillith as the villain. Maybe Mephisto but I'd keep him for Ghost Rider depending on if he gets a movie before, after or not at all.

Would also be cool if Voodoo and/or Hellstrom could appear too.
TheVisionary25
TheVisionary25 - 6/9/2024, 9:04 AM
@IronDean2099 - I think Lilith is in Blade played by Mia Goth but Blackheart could be cool!!.

Save Mephisto for later aswell as Voodoo & Helatrom for later down the line

Elsa would be a good choice though.
