‘Moon Knight’ Reportedly has “No Attachment to the Current MCU”
There have been few Marvel projects that boast the level of mystery that surrounds the upcoming Disney+ series, yet, recent statements from the series producer indicate that Moon Knight reportedly has, “no attachment to the current MCU.”
The story of Marc Spector that will unfold before the eyes of viewers on March 30th is quite unlike anything that the MCU has seen before; as a matter of fact, it is quite the opposite of most of what the MCU is today.
Uncovering the mysterious and enigmatic Moon Knight is a task of mythical proportions, as the fist of Khonshu deals with Egyptian deities, dissociative identity disorder, and a character study that includes a man who is unsure as to just who he is.
Yet, one of the great joys of the current MCU is the theorization as to just how every Marvel story interconnects, something that may not be a concern for the upcoming series as producer Grant Curtis has stated that Moon Knight reportedly isn’t connected to the overarching Marvel Cinematic Universe
Reported by ComicBook.com, Curtis released a press briefing on the upcoming series that emphasized Marvel’s desire to construct the character of Marc Spector from the ground up; studying just who he is.
Curtis stated, “There’s no attachment to the current MCU. He’s brand-new, and he is going on a brand-new adventure. We really think the fans are going to enjoy it.”
The producer continued by stating, “there are multiple aspects of Moon Knight that get us internally jazzed at Marvel Studios. But one of the unique aspects of this character is its taking Marvel Studios to its Iron Man and Tony Starks roots.”
It is clear that Marvel is taking a different approach when it comes to uncovering just who Marc Spector- and the Moon Knight persona is- but there is little evidence to believe that he doesn’t exist in the same overarching universe as other MCU characters.
Rather, we imagine Curtis is stating the obvious; that Spector has to connection to MCU characters, and his story is his alone.
