Moon Knight Series Review

Moon+Knight+Series+Review

As of Wednesday, May 4th, Marvel Studios’ series Moon Knight concluded with its episode six finale. The show is about Marc Spector, a mercenary who struggles with Dissociative Identity Disorder (DID), and finds himself under the service of the Egyptian moon god, Khonsu, as his Moon Knight, who is supposed to bring vengeance to the world and protect the innocent.

This show has been one of Marvel’s best projects to date and works both as a standalone series, as well as one connected to the greater MCU (Marvel Cinematic Universe). I really enjoyed the series for the acting and plot, and I really enjoyed Oscar Issac’s portrayal of Marc Spector and Steven Grant, and of a character with DID, also, I liked Ethan Hawke’s villain, Arthur Harrow, and May Calamawy’s Layla El-Faouly. It was nice seeing the show delve into Marc’s traumatic backstory and how he developed DID. I also liked the bits of Egyptian Mythology within the series, exploring the Ennead, with gods like Osiris, Horus, Ammit, Khonsu, Tawaret, and more, as well as the Duat and Field of Reeds. I am excited to see Marc’s next appearance in the MCU, whether it be a film or show, and am already waiting for a potential season two.
