10 Easter eggs remind the MCU and honor the comic roots of the Moon Knight in the first volume

Entertaiment, News

Moon Knight is Marvel’s newest series airing on Disney+ every Wednesday, introducing the superhero Moon Knight with powers inherited from the moon and the god Khonshu. Veteran actor Oscar Isaac transforms into Steven Grant – a gift shop assistant at the National Gallery of Art in London. He suffers from DID (Disorder of Identity) and Steven Grant is just one of the identities this man possesses alongside mercenary Marc Spector.

In episode 1, which just aired, Steven Grant still took control of his body, so the audience did not see many Moon Knight-branded fights. However, his adventure in the process of finding out what is going on with himself was cleverly planted by Marvel with many easter eggs like the way it did with previous series.

1. Arthur Harrow’s Glass Shoes

Moon Knight https://zenodo.org/communities/red-online-castellanohd-dede/?page=1&size=20  starts out in quirky style when villain Arthur Harrow (Ethan Hawke) fills his shoes with glass before putting them on. Introduced in Moon Knight #2 edition , Dr. Harrow is a scientific expert on “pain theory” (that is, how to block nerve pain responses) and lives with an incurable debilitating condition that causes constant pain.

Arthur Harrow’s occupation is not mentioned in Moon Knight . The glass slipper challenge could point to his comic roots as a pain-obsessed scientist.

2. Namor appeared in Moon Knight?

Audiences have been waiting for Namor the Sub-Mariner for too long at this point, so perhaps Marvel is pleasing fans a bit by installing small details. In episode 1 of Moon Knight , a London store called Atlantis came into view as Steven ran by. This is a fictional location that appeared in both Iron Man 2 (SHIELD map) and Avengers: Endgame (Okoye’s reference to underground earthquakes).

3. Donna came out of the manga Moon Knight

Donna – Steven Grant’s superior is a famous comic https://zenodo.org/communities/red-online-castellanohd-dede/?page=1&size=20 book character of Marvel. In the original, she was named Donna Kraft, which debuted in 1992 through the beginning of Moon Knight #39 . The live-action version has very little in common with Donna Kraft, but it’s interesting that Moon Knight swapped Donna’s role from Marc’s employee to Steven’s boss.

4. Ennead Opens Up How The Egyptian Gods Work In The MCU

When Chris Hemsworth’s Thor appeared in the MCU, the mythological gods on Earth (Thor, Odin, Hela, etc.) were redefined as aliens, worshiped after visiting Earth for many years. previous century. So far, however, the Egyptian gods of the Moon Knight appear as traditional gods rather than otherworldly deities. But one easter egg corrects this, and that is Ennead.

Moon Knight gives some details regarding Ennead – a group of supreme Egyptian gods. They come from a small dimension known as the Celestial Heliopolis but can reach Earth through a portal. The gateway is said to have opened into ancient Egypt, and similar to Norway’s relationship with the Asgardians, the visitors became worshiped by the locals. Episode 1 of Moon Knight emphasizes the importance of Ennead showing that this idea can be turned into live-action.

5. The statue in Moon Knight is a Marvel character

Steven Grantis  https://zenodo.org/communities/jujutsukaisen0-online-castellano-haa/?page=1&size=20 considered an eccentric because of his multiple personality disorder. After an unsuccessful appointment, he went to the park to chat with his best friend – The statue was silent and motionless. Played by Shaun Scott, the character was never named, but in the credits, Marvel identifies him as “Crawley”.

Similar to Donna/Donna Kraft, Crawley’s name is taken directly from the adventures of Moon Knight in the Marvel comics. Specifically, it concerns Bertrand Crawley – a homeless man who works as an informant for Marc Spector. As such, the series was intended to honor Crawley and Donna’s comic roots, albeit with slight tweaks.

6. Layla is Marlene Alraune

When Steven Grant discovers Marc Spector’s phone, he receives a call from a woman named Layla. Although she has a different name, this is probably Marlene Alraune. Debuting in the Marvel comics in 1976, Marlene Alraune is an archaeologist and the girlfriend of Marc Spector. She was the one who saved his life and helped turn Marc Spector into the Moon Knight when he brought him to the temple of the god Khonshu.

7. The name “Duchamp” in Moon Knight

The only name that appears with Layla https://zenodo.org/communities/spiderman-no-way-home-castiliano/?page=1&size=20 in Marc Spector’s secret phone book is “Duchamp”. Duchamp must be a reference to Jean-Paul Duchamp – one of Moon Knight’s allies in the comics. As a former member of the French Legion, Duchamp is not expected to feature in Moon Knight and no cast has been announced so far.

8. The reflection in the mirror heralds Marc’s transformation

The Moon Knight relies heavily on imagery and symbolism to herald Steven Grant’s inner strength – sometimes subtly or frankly. He wears white on the bed, the floor is sand, the outside photos show the moon clearly and there is a white circle pattern that often appears in the apartment.

Perhaps the best example, however, comes at the time when Steven Grant first hears Marc Spector in episode 1 of Moon Knight , with the mercenary appearing in front of him in a circular white mirror, reminiscent of the full moon.

9. Arthur Harrow Doesn’t Mention Thanos

Trying to convince https://zenodo.org/communities/econtototo-nininini-02/?page=1&size=20 Steven Grant of Ammit’s virtues, Arthur Harrow of Ethan Hawke argues: “If Ammit had been free, she would have stopped Hitler, Nero, the Armenian genocide, Pol Pot…”. Worth mentioning, the event that Thanos collected all the only Infinity Stones and wiped out half of all life in the entire universe was removed from Arthur’s list, making the audience wonder where Moon Knight is located.

10. Steven Grant brought Avatar into the MCU

While conversing with Steve Grant, Arthur Harrow alludes to Ammit being betrayed by his own “avatar”. Steven nervously replied: “Blue people. I like that movie too”. This is a reference to James Cameron’s 2009 blockbuster. Arthur Harrow tried to explain what he meant but Steven interrupted, “You mean anime?” , reminiscent of the hit animated series Avatar: The Last Airbender. However, until now, The Last Airbender is still stuck in controversy whether it is an anime or not?
