Superheroes on Screen - (Full) Moon Knight

Marvel Studios has announced its intentions of creating a live-action television series based on Moon Knight. As announced by Superherohype.com:

First introduced by Marvel Comics in the mid-1970s, Moon Knight remains a true fan favorite as evidenced by the current best-selling comic book series featuring the Super Hero. Moon Knight presents the story of soldier of fortune Marc Spector. After an encounter with the Egyptian god of vengeance and the moon deity Konshu, he became a hero: Moon Knight. The encounter leaves the tormented Spector with even more inner demons to combat. Now as Moon Knight, he hunts criminals in the night, bringing them to justice, and striking fear in the hearts of criminals everywhere. Moon Knight's blend of action, the supernatural, and complex, intriguing characters will serve as the foundation for the live-action series.

Interesting. I wonder what size of audience this show could generate? Smallville does ok on primetime which translates to good for The CW, and it has freaking Superman. How large an audience can Moon Knight pull? Maybe it will be a new attempt fro Marvel to bring viewers to SpikeTV after the cancellation of Blade. I don't know much about Moony, but I will give him a chance. I look forward to hearing some more news on the matter.
