Moon Knight is finally out and after seeing the whole show, it’s safe to say that fans enjoyed it. However, there are lots of rumors that never came to fruition. One such rumor was seeing Bruce Banner in Moon Knight. The character was heavily rumored to appear ever since a photo of Mark Ruffalo and Oscar Isaac hanging out in Budapest during the filming of Moon Knight surfaced online. However, Moon Knight director Mohamed Diab has offered some insight into this rumor. We’d like to thank Mo from Streamr for graciously providing us with this exclusive snippet from his interview with Diab. You can check out the first part here and make sure to follow @StreamrNews for the rest of it! Here’s what Diab had to say on the rumored cameo:
That’s a smart question. I’m happy to put bury that rumor, we were shooting in Budapest, and Budapest is the hub for shooting movies these days. So, [Mark Ruffalo] he was just shooting another movie with your biggest lengthening. That’s all. He was in the same hotel. It’s a small city. Everyone is staying in the same hotel, but when people saw them together they were just like what. Yeah, yeah so anyone else you saw and didn’t have a cameo it means they were at the hotel shooting a movie there.-Mohamed Diab
Fans might be bummed to hear this but considering that Moon Knight was widely praised for being able to stand on it’s own and not rely on other MCU connections to make it good, I think that i’m okay with this. Besides, I don’t think it would be easy to fit Bruce Banner in Moon Knight without it feeling forced so maybe it’s for the best that no other cameos or connections were included.
Moon Knight is currently streaming on Disney+. thanks again to Streamr for providing us with this snippet. Check out the first part of their Diab interview here!
