‘Moon Knight’ Writer Confirms Marc Spector Survived the Blip
The series that culminated in a fantastic finale is still the subject of much debate by fans, as Moon Knight writer Jeremy Slater finally confirms Marc Spector did, in fact, survive the blip.
It is no secret that we here at MarvelBlog can’t understate the tremendous success of Marvel’s latest series.
What we perceive as the Marvel Cinematic Universes’ best series yet, Moon Knight has firmly established itself as one of the most unique and daring projects that have ever been attempted by the MCU.
Crafting a narrative surrounding some of the most mature themes that have ever been explored in the MCU, Moon Knight approached dense topics like child abuse and mental illness with immense care, while still allowing them to exist and feel at home in the Marvel landscape.
The key to this is Marc Spector, the former mercenary who suffers from Dissociative Identity Disorder, and is practically enslaved by a vengeful Egyptian deity that is using him to punish the world’s most horrid, people
A series that is still debated and discussed by MCU fans, one of the long-running theories surrounded just what happened to Spector in the five years between Avengers: Infinity War and Avengers: Endgame.
In a recent interview with The Direct, Moon Knight writer Jeremy Slater confirms that Marc Spector did survive the blip.
Slater states, “We definitely, in the writer’s room, we all collectively thought he survived the blip, that he wasn’t blipped away. Because I don’t know how you- I think if he had been blipped and come back, it would be something at you would have to address.”
“It’s something you would have to deal with,” Slater continued,”, especially as a character who is trying to find his place in the world, and has a lot of questions about his past.”
Slater concluded, “To not touch on the Blip of it all, felt weird. So we all kind of collectively assumed that he was part of the 50% that survived.”
It would have been interesting to see more into what occurred in those five years with Marc Spector, and how that could have possibly altered the story in some way.
