Don’t worry if you’ve never heard of Moon Knight before Marvel‘s latest round of announcements. There is nothing wrong with you if you’ve never heard of Moon Knight.
My interest in these three films has been piqued after reading my previous articles on “Ms. Marvel” and “She-Hulk,” and now I can understand why.
Moon Knight, unlike the first two, is a relative newbie to the Marvel world, which adds to the mystique of the character.
“Moon Knight” might have the same impact on the Marvel Cinematic Universe as the premiere of “Doctor Strange” in 2016.
“Moon Knight” has the potential to provide Marvel the opportunity to experiment with tone in a way that they haven’t done before including magic, other identities, and separate universes.
Werewolves and mythology may be the solution to the question of what Batman may look like.
It’s not yet known which of the several alternatives the series will employ. For now, let’s take a look at some of the character’s lore in order to get a sense of Marvel’s aspirations for the character and his television program. Continue reading to learn more about this topic.
Moon Knight Release Date
When Moon Knight will be released officially is yet unknown. While the program will premiere on Disney Plus in 2022, it is still under development.
Moon Knight, Disney Plus’s first original series, is expected to premiere in February. A program’s launch in February hasn’t been confirmed yet, and it’s unclear if one will happen at all.
Moon Knight Plotline
Interestingly, James Gunn has pitched a Moon Knight movie in the past, but we don’t know how much of it made it into the final film.
As with every new character, Moon Knight’s origins will play a large influence in his or her evolution.
The Moon Knight is the alter ego of future heavyweight fighter Marc Spector. He later joins the US Marines and then mercenaries, occasionally working for the CIA, where he gets much of his military training.
The most exciting part of Raoul Bushman’s origin narrative is when he stumbles onto an old Egyptian temple while working with an African mercenary and is led before the statue of Khonshu, the Egyptian Moon God.
Khonshu, in spirit form, visits him and offers to revive him if he accepts to be the god’s incarnation.
Because he encountered Khonshu, the moon deity, the Moon Knight gained several “supernatural” personalities.
The series should address his “dream-like” appearance of Khonshu as part of his shattered identities. His skills, on the other hand, are undeniable.
Unlike our other superheroes, their powers change with the moon’s phases, peaking at a full moon and vice versa.
That would make for intriguing television. Like Kryptonite, but with bi-monthly depreciation. Without overthinking it, it’s simple to see how this may be one of the most unique aspects of the Moon Knight’s storey.
Instead of facing up against the more well-known villains from their own series, the Moon Knight has amassed his own formidable enemies. It’s based on previous comic book movie adaptations.
There would be enough material for a six-episode miniseries. It would free them up to focus on other aspects of the show, including the aesthetics, which I feel will be important in the end.
Morpheus, Midnight Man, Black Spectre, and Raoul Bushman all appear. While the mythology is wide, there must be a link.
Superheroes need allies as much as adversaries. Frenchie, or Jean-Paul Duchamp, is Spector’s best friend and French pilot’s best friend.
Spector’s former mercenary, Frenchie, worked alongside him on countless dangerous missions before becoming the Moon Knight.
Despite Marlene Alraune and Bertrand Crawley’s presence, none compare to Spector and Frenchie’s bond.
I can only envision the ‘Moon Knight’ TV series connecting with the upcoming ‘Doctor Strange: In The Multiverse of Madness’ movie.
No other subuniverse or mini-mythos in the MCU allows for the evolution of magical and mystical mythology as Strange’s world does.
It would make sense for the upcoming Doctor Strange picture to offer the character a quick introduction before transitioning into the Moon Knight’s canonical origin narrative in his series, as stated above.
Moon Knight Trailer
Moon Knight’s trailer is still to come. Marvel Studios had to delay the March premiere of the first episode to make a full-length promo for the series. Fans want to see the show during Disney Plus Day.
