Moon Knight head writer and executive manufacturer Jeremy Slater described the absence of connections to the Marvel Cinematic Universe in the series.
Moon Knight stunned lots of audiences, not since of a significant connection to the Marvel Cinematic Universe, however since of its standalone nature. In Stage 4, it’s nearly anticipated that a Marvel Studios task will include some connection to the higher universe, however Moon Knight rather informed a real solo tale.
Most of the Marvel Studios jobs set post-Avengers: Endgame have actually attended to “The Blip” in their own imaginative method and others are beginning to speak about the Multiverse. In an interview with The Direct, developer Jeremy Slater talked about why Moon Knight was so detached from the remainder of the MCU:
“There were certain territories and topics where we were told early on, ‘Let’s steer clear,’ because Marvel’s always very conscious about repeating themselves. They want to always be sort of stretching and finding new corners of the universe to explore. So it was like, let’s stay away from The Blip, because The Blip is obviously being discussed in depth in WandaVision, in Falcon and the Winter Soldier, in Hawkeye. Let’s sort of avoid that aspect. Let’s stay away from [the] Multiverse because of Spider-Man: No Way Home and Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness. There’s just those different areas where they were like… it feels like the MCU is going really heavy on certain ideas and concepts over here, so we need to keep our little corner very separate than that, so it doesn’t start to feel like everything is a Multiverse story.”
Moon Knight may’ve limited itself from having significant MCU connections, however the series nearly included looks from Kumail Nanjiani’s Kingo and Package Harington’s Black Knight from Eternals. In spite of those apperances not concerning frution, it does supply a little insight on which location of the MCU Oscar Isaac’s Moon Knight might show up in next.
Here is the summary for Moon Knight:
The series follows Steven Grant, a mild-mannered gift-shop worker, who ends up being pestered with blackouts and memories of another life. Steven finds he has dissociative identity condition and shares a body with mercenary Marc Spector. As Steven/Marc’s opponents assemble upon them, they should browse their intricate identities while thrust into a lethal secret amongst the effective gods of Egypt.
