Disney+ has shared a critics TV spot for Moon Knight spotlighting the praise that’s bene heaped on the show, but it also contains a few shots from upcoming episodes that might be considered a bit spoilery!
Disney+ has released a new critics TV spot for Moon Knight which highlights some of the praise that’s been heaped upon the steamer’s latest MCU-set series since it premiered this past Monday. The promo also contains footage from the next three episodes, and one shot, in particular, might be considered a pretty significant spoiler!
In episode 3, Steven Grant/Marc Spector and Layla travel to Egypt in an attempt to foil Arthur Harrow’s plan, and while those shots are not especially revealing, we also get a quick glimpse of a scene from episode 4 with Spector looking at what appears to be a Moon Knight action figure.
We’re not going to provide any more context, but let’s just say it is somewhat surprising to see this development teased in a TV spot when only a single episode has aired!
The review embargo lifted earlier this week (you can check out my verdict here), and critics seem to be impressed by the first four episodes. Not everyone was won over, but the show currently sits at a very respectable 87% on Rotten Tomatoes.
Moon Knight follows Steven Grant, a mild-mannered gift-shop employee, who becomes plagued with blackouts and memories of another life. Steven discovers he has dissociative identity disorder and shares a body with mercenary Marc Spector. As Steven/Marc’s enemies converge upon them, they must navigate their complex identities while thrust into a mystery among the powerful gods of Egypt.
The limited series also stars Ethan Hawke and May Calamawy. Mohamed Diab, Justin Benson and Aaron Moorhead directed the episodes, with Jeremy Slater on board as writer.
