An executive producer for Marvel’s “Moon Knight” confirmed that the upcoming Disney+ series takes place in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and there are plans to expand the character’s role in the MCU. Moon Knight has frequently teamed up with the Avengers in the Marvel comics. So it wouldn’t be shocking to see him show up in future films.
Moon Knight has frequently teamed up with the Avengers in the Marvel comics. So it wouldn’t be shocking to see him show up in future films. The original plans for Moon Knight include cameos from 4 of the MCU’s Eternals characters, involving Kumail Nanjiani’s Kingo, in a flashback.
Moon Knight Producer Reveals Eternals’ Scrapped Cameos
As per the plan, four characters of the Eternals were originally meant to appear in Moon Knight. According to the show’s producer, starring Oscar Isaac as Marc Spector/Steven Grant. We also know that Moon Knight is the fifth live-action Marvel Cinematic Universe show for Disney+.
“I could see Marc and Steven driving the characters of the MCU crazy, Marc’s speaking to someone with complete seriousness, and suddenly he turns into Steven, or Moon Knight turns into Mr. Knight. I think it would be amazing.”
Additionally, Black Knight made his first MCU appearance in “Eternals,” when Dane Whitman (Kit Harrington) found the Ebony blade which is a major weapon. The character uses in the Marvel comics.
Mahershala Ali’s Blade has eventually made his on-screen debut. But there was a clue of his appearance in a recent MCU movie. During an ongoing interview with The Direct, head writer and series producer, Jeremy Slater confirmed that he wanted the Eternals to support in the opening of one episode.
It’s completely understandable as to why it was cut. Budget-wise, it would have easily wiped away! The finale fans just witnessed undoubtedly needed all the money it could get. In fact, that one hypothetical scene would have blown the entire final episode out.
Even if, the show’s distance from the MCU may be one of its strongest features, it still would have been nice to have some big connection at some point within the six-episode run. This connection could have been a character showing up in full force. The idea of the Eternals appearing in Moon Knight might be awesome, but it would also vastly change their history and the context of the show itself.
