Marvel Boss Compares Moon Knight’s Storytelling Approach to WandaVision’s

Marvel Studios boss Kevin Feige draws a storytelling connection between Moon Knight and the first Marvel series to air on Disney+, WandaVision.

Marvel Studios Chief Creative Officer and President Kevin Feige liked the latest Marvel Cinematic Universe TV show Moon Knight to the studio’s initial foray into the TV landscape, Wanda Vision.

In a red carpet interview at Moon Knight‘s premiere, Feige hinted at what audiences can expect from the MCU’s newest Disney+ show. “This series is very much a mystery, and the audience is right with the lead character Steven Grant,” Feige said. “He wakes up in the morning and struggles to figure out what is happening to him and what is going on. The audience is with him on that journey throughout all six episodes. So for us it’s really fun — almost akin to Wanda Vision — as each episode something else is uncovered and we travel down that journey with Oscar’s character.”

It seems Moon Knight will be following Wanda Vision‘s previous of a weekly mystery, which helped it become one of the most-watched TV shows of 2021, culminating in the series receiving 23 Emmy nominations and three wins. After Wanda Vision kicked off the current era of MCU TV, Marvel followed up with series The Falcon and the Winter Soldier, Loki, What If…? and Hawkeyeall of which debuted on Disney+ in 2021.

Moon Knight stars Oscar Isaac as a US Marine with dissociative identity disorder (DID) who is granted the powers of an Egyptian god. Joining Isaac are Training Day star Ethan Hawke and F. Murray Abraham as the Egyptian god Konshu, who imbues Moon Knight with his powers. The series is being helmed by The Umbrella Academy creative Jeremy Slater, as well as Mohamaed Diab, who shares directing credits with filmmaking tandem Justin Benson and Aaron Moorhead on all six episodes.

Marvel’s new series will be the first of four new MCU shows set to hit Disney+ in 2022, the others being Ms.Marvel, she hulk and Secret Invasion. The Guardians of the Galaxy Holiday Special and an untitled Halloween special rumored to feature Werewolf by Night — who will make his MCU debut in Moon Knight — are also expected to release on the streaming service this year. Feige has previously stated that Moon Knight will appear in future MCU films after his six-episode run on Disney+.

Since the first trailer for Moon Knight dropped in January, fans have been waiting for the live action debut of a classic Marvel character who has seen a recent surge in popularity. While Moon Knight has been around in comics since his debut in Werewolf by Night #32 in 1975, his upcoming show has finally put him in the spotlight.
