Moon Knight: The Newest Edition

Moon Knight: The Newest Edition

Zachary Heinis, Staff Writer

For the Marvel lovers in the world, Moon Knight is arguably one of the most interesting heroes.  Who doesn’t love Marc Spector, a rich kid who ends up turning into a mercenary with traces of insanity?

The MCU has been working on the Moon Knight tv series for a long time now, and the first episode FINALLY gets released at the end of March.  Non-coincidentally, the series ends right before Doctor Strange: The Multiverse of Madness gets released.

Moon Knight will start a darker form of the MCU, which will hopefully lead to more Marvel Knights characters being entered into the universe, such as The Punisher, Daredevil, and maybe even Cloak and Dagger.  For those that don’t know, the Marvel Knights characters of Marvel equate to the Batman characters of DC.

Up until now, most Marvel content has been appropriate to a wide variety of viewers, but as the MCU has grown, the maturity of their content has also grown.

Up to a certain point, family-friendly MCU content is good, but not all characters can fully thrive in a family-friendly environment.  Just like Deadpool, the only way to do darker characters proper justice, is to give the cast and director more leniency on the content.

Marvel already attempted to introduce darker characters into the MCU with Jessica Jones, Iron Fist, Luke Cage, Daredevil, and Punisher in the Defenders on a Netflix show, but this ended up not working out.  However, the stellar actor who played Matthew Murdock in Daredevil, Charlie Cox, was in fact introduced into the MCU in Spider-Man: No Way Home, so anything’s possible.

Hopefully this show will do Moon Knight justice, but at this point, there’s only one way to find out.
