This same month ‘Moon Knight’ premieres on Disney +, the new Marvel series that bets on a darker tone and takes us into a somewhat more mystical side of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
Although for now the series and movies of the MCU have been in charge of leaving small crumbs to unite all the titles of the franchise, it seems that the series starring oscar isaac It’s going to be a bit cut off from the rest of the universe.
A new starting point for Marvel
Moon Knight is a relatively unknown character within the House of Ideas (at least if we measure him against titans like Spider-Man or the X-Men), so his television series will serve to introduce this peculiar hero. and its mythology to the general public.
The series arrives on Disney+ next March 30thand with the premiere practically upon us we are knowing some more details about ‘Moon Knight’ and how it will fit in with the rest of the MCU’s heroes and events. According Grant Curtisthe show’s executive producer, have been able to develop the character from scratch, without having to worry about how to tie him into the rest of the universe.
“It’s not tied to the rest of the MCU. It’s brand new, and it’s a brand new adventure. We think fans are going to really enjoy it,” Curtis said in a press release. “There are many aspects of ‘Moon Knight’ that we at Marvel Studios are very excited about. But one of the unique aspects of this character is that it takes Marvel Studios back to its Iron Man and Tony Stark roots.”
“He’s a character that was obviously built from scratch, and it’s the same with Marc Spector,” the producer said of the character of Oscar Isaac. “We’re fully embracing the supernatural aspects of the comics… The Egyptian gods, and the ruthless Egyptian god Khonshu who manipulates Marc into subservience to him. We’re embracing all of this, we love this kind of stuff.”
For now, the MCU has tiptoed into the supernatural side of Marvel, with small brushstrokes within the Netflix series and more recently with the introduction of Dane Whitman in ‘Eternals’. So with this in mind, it makes sense that ‘Moon Knight’ and Marc Specter completely cut off from the rest of the universe, and they are certainly the perfect introduction to showcase this aspect of Marvel.
“It’s a story about identity and finding himself. Marc Spector’s journey throughout the series is about who he is and how he comes to terms with different parts of his past, present and potential future, even if he’s not necessarily with them.” explained the producer in USA Today. “Accepting all this baggage and learning to live with ourselves is something we all deal with on a daily basis.”
