For the past month or so, Marvel fans have been pondering between reality and fantasy as Moon Knight explored mental health, Egyptian mythology, and featured Oscar Isaac portraying multiple characters while frequently sharing the screen with himself. Now, director Mohamed Diab has promised that the Marvel series’ finale is such, that it will surprise yet satisfy fans.
What we know about MCU’s Moon Knight:
The series follows Steven Grant, a mild-mannered gift-shop salesperson who suffers from blackouts and flashbacks to a previous life. Steven gets diagnosed with dissociative identity disorder (DID) and is forced to share a body with criminal Marc Spector. Following the conclusion of Episode 5, which addressed Marc’s background and the source of his Dissociative Identity Disorder, the show’s sixth and final episode has a variety of tasks to complete before the curtains drop.
What Moon Knight Director said about the season finale:
Moon Knight has provided a variety of twists thus far, and the more the merrier. However, many viewers have thought the program has lacked the action aspect, particularly given Spector’s abilities and the stunning design of his suit. Moon Knight’s lead director Mohamed Diab provided a glimpse of what’s in store just days before its May 4 premiere. He hinted at what viewers may hope for from the impending series finale in an interview with Entertainment Weekly, stating, “There are some surprises. I think the audience deserves a big action sequence, but it’s more than that. It has some twists and turns, and I really feel like it’s a satisfying ending to our journey,” he concluded.
Diab proceeded to call Oscar Isaac’s performance ‘magnificent,’ adding: “The difference between Marc and Steven is so huge, yet they’re so similar. He (Oscar Isaac) did a fantastic job developing those characters, and when he inhabited the two, they were completely different. He made them his own.”
What can be expected from Moon Knight episode 6:
Despite the fact that Moon Knight has a vast list of narrative elements that need to be resolved, the latest sources say that Episode 6 will only be 44-45 minutes long. Then again, Marc is still dead, Layla is probably in trouble, Khonshu remains trapped, and Arthur Harrow is still a tremendous mystery and a major concern. It’s also unclear when Marc’s other identity, Jake Lockley, will appear. Moon Knight’s first five episodes are now available to watch on Disney+. On May 4, 2022, the sixth and last episode of the series will be aired.
