‘Moon Knight’ Director Promises Series Final Two Episodes Will be, “Crazier and Darker” Than the Rest of the Show
There are few characters that have debuted to the same level of fanfare as the recent MCU debut of Oscar Isaac’s long-awaited Moon Knight.
A character that is quite unlike any other in the pantheon of Marvel heroes, Marc Spector is a former mercenary who suffers from dissociative identity disorder and shares one vessel with the personalities of Steven Grant and the vigilante known as Moon Knight.
The series has pulled no punches from the start, with fans observing the mild-mannered, cockney gift store clerk whose mental illness is truly and completely ruining his life.
Gaps in memory, uncompromisingly dangerous situations with no recollection of reasoning, and a burdened existence all afflict the series’ main character in the series’ first episode.
Yet, there was still a quality of Steven Grant that has truly endeared fans; with his dry comedic persistence nurturing viewers to truly fall in love with this deeply tragic and unlucky character.
It seems, however, that the comedy of Grant and the series will likely take a turn, as Moon Knight director promises the series’ final two episodes will be no laughing manner.
ScreenRant reported an interview with Deseret News in which Mohamed Diab- the director of the series’ first, third, fifth, and sixth episodes in the series- promises that episodes five and six are, “crazier and darker” than the rest of the series.
It is no surprise that a series with such a mature theme, and with such a brutal nature, will delve into a world that is much darker and more concerning than even the one we have presently experienced.
One thing is certain, Moon Knight will continue to be one of the most tragic and interesting characters in the MCU.
