Yeah, the Moon Knight trailer is here and I’ve got to say, I have it up there with Loki on my EXCITED list for a Disney+ series. For now, Loki is still the series I was most excited about after its trailer mainly because, well, I knew the title character. I still have roughly no idea about Marc Spector or Moon Knight or the intriguing and apparent supernatural corner of the MCU he inhabits. I’m also quite not over the fact that Poe’s about to be a superhero, even though I know Oscar Isaac has the acting chops to pull this role off and Sarah Halley Finn hasn’t failed yet at casting.
By the way, those aren’t cons. They’re just general observations about something I’m brand new to. In other words, I’m pumped!
The series will apparently take place in Egypt. That’s exciting considering this is a section of the world that the MCU hasn’t explored yet.
I feel like Moon Knight is about to be the next Doctor Strange in terms of introducing us to a whole new corner of the MCU. Guardians of the Galaxy gave us the cosmos which Eternals built upon and Doctor Strange gave us the multiversal, otherworldly realm. Moon Knight‘s about to delve deep into the supernatural with a tinge of horror which was on obvious display in this trailer.
We got our first live-action look at the Moon God Khonshu in the trailer in a riveting but kind of terrifying encounter with Marc Spector. Creepy.
If you didn’t know it, Ethan Hawke is now a part of the MCU. He will be the primary antagonist.
And…there’s not much more I can tell you. The trailer teases a gritty, dark origin story for a character whose very existence means we’re about to start seeing werewolves and yes, eventually, vampires. (Here comes Blade and Black Knight.)
If this series is supposed to have six episodes like the three previous live-action MCU series then it will be concluding on May 4, two days before Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness.
That’s interesting. I wonder if it will have any connections to that movie, if even for a post-credits scene.
In fact, I wonder when this takes place. Is it around the time of Shang-Chi, the Eternals, or maybe even Hawkeye? Time will definitely tell.
So, now comes the agonizingly long wait to see this show. Can I use a teleportation device and jump to March 30? Thanks!
I thank you for reading and I hope you have a fantastic day.
