Moon Knight, The Latest Instalment Of MCU, Aired On The 30th Of March On Disney+

MOVIE NEWS – Moon Knight debuted two days ago on Disney+. Director Mohamed Diab discussed its placement in the MCU timeline on Nerdist.

The first episode of Moon Knight, the latest show of the MCU, has come out two days ago. It has already received a lot of positive feedback. Fans seem to love Ethan Hawke’s corrupt Arthur Harrow and Oscar Issac‘s mysterious and troubled Moon Knight. However, one question stands; when does the show exactly take place?

Director Mohamed Diab talked about this topic on Nerdist. According to him, Moon Knight rather stands in the MCU as an independent storyline; therefore, he didn’t aim to place it in some continuity with the other works of the universe. However, he also mentioned that the studio originally planned to include several hints and easter eggs in Moon Knight, referencing other installations to the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

“One of the best things about the show is, it feels like a standalone project. That wasn’t the case in the beginning. The case, in the beginning, was [that] there was some crossovers, small, small Marvel stuff. But as it progressed, as we saw the cuts, as we finished the show, it felt [that] you know, [it] doesn’t need anything else. Let’s even cut any easter eggs. This stands on its own.”

Diab believes Moon Knight could work better without any dependence on other Marvel works. He thinks the characters have a better chance to shine through the screen and form their own narrative in an independent setting.

Moon Knight is also a part of Phase Four of the MCU. It is supposed that the story takes place around the events of The Falcon and The Winter Soldier and somewhat after Endgame.
