If you’re a fan of the Star Wars universe, then you’ve probably wondered: Is Moon Knight a movie or a television series?
After all, it was one of the nominees for Best Foreign Language Film at the 2017 Academy Awards. The answer to that question will depend on what you’re looking for. In this article, we’ll look at what to expect from this new Netflix original series.
First of all, we have an idea of what the show’s premise is: an American secret agent gains superpowers after meeting the ancient Egyptian god Khonsu.
The film is being directed by Egyptian director Mohamed Diab and will star May Calamawy. If it’s a series, expect the story to follow a familiar storyline, including Moon Knight’s origin story.
While Moon Knight is based on the Egyptian mythology of Khonshu, it doesn’t seem like it will be as literal as it sounds.
The character is an amalgam of several personalities, one of which is a disgruntled British museum employee.
In addition, the movie’s synopsis mentions the existence of a zealot preacher named Arthur Harrow. However, while the synopsis focuses on the dissociative identity disorder and the mystical elements of Moon Knight, the focus is on the main character, Steven Grant.
The new Netflix series will debut on March 30 and run for six episodes until May 4, 2022. It is still unclear whether it will be a movie or a television series, but the first two episodes will air back-to-back.
There are no obvious Marvel connections in the series, but it could be an interesting addition to the MCU. And it’s still possible that the series could become a popular part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
