The series featured an epic battle between the gods Khonshu and Ammit but many chose the Egyptian god Taweret to be their favourite. The adorable hippo from the series Moon Knight is Taweret, according to ancient Egyptian mythology, she was the goddess of pregnancy and fertility but here in Moon Knight, she guides souls as they move into the afterlife.
She is the one who helps Marc Spector and Steven Grant in their journey and eventually chooses Layla (May Calamawy) as her avatar. Now that the Moon Knight has brought in some new gods in the MCU, fans are worried about their fate in the upcoming Thor: Love and Thunder.
Taweret’s Fate in Thor: Love and Thunder
In Thor: Love and Thunder, the villain of the film Gorr the God Butcher(Christan Bale), who is known for killing gods are featured which means no MCU god is safe.
When asked about Moon Knight‘s god appearance in the upcoming Marvel movie Thor: Love and Thunder, writer Jeremy Slater in an interview said, “Honestly, I don’t know. If so, my guess is it’s sort of a background cameo thing, but I don’t know the answer to that. That be cool if it did. Make me very happy, I’d love to see Taweret it in there somewhere, as long as she’s not someone who’s getting butchered by Gorr.”
Slater went on to talk about his attachment towards Moon Knight’s fan favourite Goddess Taweret saying, “If they kill Taweret, I’m done. I am officially retired. I will not recover from that personally. A hippo means more to me than most of the people I know in real life. Yes.”
Thor: Love and Thunder Connection with the Moon Knight series
Moon Knight writer Jeremy Slater in an interview told about the references used in Moon Knight series for Thor: Love and Thunder. Slater told that “had versions of the story that teased Gorr’s arrival, and [ones] that were sort of taking place in the aftermath of that movie.”
This showed that the alternative versions of Moon Knight were planned according to what was happening in the MCU. One thing can be extracted that Jeremy Slater have already hinted for a season 2 of the Marvel series and fans would love to see new chapters that are still unknown.
Moon Knight is now streaming on Disney+, while Thor: Love and Thunder will be released on July 8.
