    Moon Knight Originally Featured Multiple MCU Crossovers

    Marvel Studios’ Disney+ series Moon Knight recently finished its first season run on the streaming service, and while it was firmly connected to other Marvel properties, it didn’t feature many crossovers. According to Moon Knight‘s director, Mohamed Diab, however, that wasn’t always the case.

    Speaking to Variety in a recent interview, Diab — who led the directing team on the series and directed the first, third, fifth, and sixth episodes of the show — said that there were various MCU crossovers planned for Moon Knight, one of which was set to occur in the “very first scene” of the show, and one at the “very end scene,” but they decided to scrap the plans for them.

    “We had the freedom to place it whenever,” said Diab. “I want to tell you the very first scene, there was a crossover, and the very end scene, there was a crossover. But as the story developed and we kept changing the scripts, we felt like, ‘We don’t need that.’ All of us. It was a collective decision. And then I kept thinking: It’s a rule. There has to be a scene at the end that connects us to the MCU. But I think they decided, ‘You know what, the surprise is that there isn’t, and what’s going to make this show unique is it doesn’t need anything else.’”

    Diab went on to say that one of the biggest compliments he’s received while working on Moon Knight is that it doesn’t feel like other Marvel properties, and that he’s proud to have been able to showcase a different feel to a Marvel series.

    “The best compliment we get on the show is when people tell us, ‘This doesn’t feel like a Marvel show,’” Diab said. “‘It feels like a standalone show that feels more dramatic, more dark, grounded.’ I feel like we succeeded in bringing Marvel more to our corner. So, so proud and happy.”

    Moon Knight stars Golden Globe winner Oscar Isaac as Steven Grant/Marc Spector, marking the fan-favorite superhero’s live-action debut. It also features Ethan Hawke as Arthur Harrow, F. Murray Abraham as the voice of Khonshu, May Calamawy as Layla, and the late Gaspard Ulliel as Midnight Man.

    Executive producers are Isaac, Diab, Kevin Feige, Louis D’Esposito, Victoria Alonso, Brad Winderbaum, Grant Curtis, Trevor Waterson, and Rebecca Kirsch.
