In almost a month we’ll be able to stream Marvel’s Moon Knight on Disney+ and fans cannot contain their excitement for the MCU’s upcoming show. By now you all must be knowing that the character has disassociative identity disorder. The plot is amazing, and so is the cast. However, what’s more exciting is, Kevin Feige reveals that the show is going to be brutal as hell. Expect the unexpected. This is going to be nothing like the usual shows we’ve watched in the past. And, the latest poster surely supports this. Check it out!
Moon Knight: Kevin Feige Calls The Show “Brutal” As Hell
Empire’s latest glossy cover show-offs Moon Knight’s new poster that gives us a closer look at his suit. Other than his suit, there is something else we get to see clearly. It is his knuckles and crescent moon-shaped weapon soaked in dark red blood. And, Kevin Feige isn’t shying away from telling the world that this show and the character are brutal as hell. They are nothing like the typical heroes we’ve seen in the past. He says they are using the streaming service to use as a medium to expand what the MCU is capable of showing!
Kevin Feige goes on to reveal that, in the show, there are a few gut-wrenching moments. In the show, you’ll also see Moon Knight sometimes wailing on another character. You might think this will be too much to watch. The same was the studio’s concern. However, looks like Kevin Feige is ready to take a risk. He said, after watching all these things, the first reaction would’ve been, “We’re gonna pull back on this, right?” But, as we said above, they are ready to risk it. He goes on to say, “No. We’re not pulling back. There’s a tonal shift. This is a different thing. This is Moon Knight.”
Well, this does sound fun because let us be honest, we’re all here to see something new. Isn’t it? Not like there’s any problem with the typical hero shows and movies we watch. But shows like these do refresh the genre! Apart from his bloodied knuckles and weapons, another thing that is drawing attention is that his power-set is linked to a bird-skulled Egyptian deity known as Khonshu.
Oscar Isaac, the actor playing the protagonist also shares his thoughts about the character and the show, He said, “It is risky. He’s an obscure hero, and the things we’re dealing with are very different. But because it’s a limited series, rather than a movie, the pressure isn’t there to make sure the opening weekend is massive. We’re able to take more risks, to bring that experimental quality on a huge scale.”
History has it, whenever MCU has planned on taking risks, they’ve delivered their best. We hope this series also surpasses our expectations and reforms the superhero genre.
