Trivia

  • Based on the Marvel Comics series created by Doug Moench and Don Perlin. The character is often described as Marvel Comics' version of Batman, with some of the talents either disagreeing by emphasizing the character's difference while others portray him as a more extreme version of DC Comics' character.
  • The story of Moon Knight is about an American Agent who gets superpowers upon meeting the Ancient Egyptian God Khonsu, which is a real god in ancient Egyptian mythology. It's worth mentioning that the show will be directed by Egyptian Director Mohamed Diab and also stars the Egyptian actress May Calamawy.
  • Khonsu is the ancient Egyptian god of the Moon. His name means "traveller" and his cult was located in Memphis, Hibis and Edfu. Khonsu is also mentioned in the Pyramid Texts and Coffin Texts, he was part of the ancient Egyptian mythology until Christianity entered Egypt in the 1st century and spread rapidly throughout the country by the 4th century, resulting in the establishment of the Coptic Church in the 5th century and the end of the ancient Egyptian religion. It is still believed in rural Egypt that ancient Egyptian spirits still roam the land, which gave birth to the idea of the "Curse of the pharaohs". the idea of the reincarnation of ancient Egyptian gods was also explored in American Gods (2017) where the other gods of ancient Egypt such as Horus, Thoth and Anubis are portrayed.
  • In 2006, Marvel Studios and No Equal Entertainment announced their intentions to release a live-action Moon Knight TV series. In 2008, Writer Jon Cooksey intended to develop the Moon Knight television series.
  • Daniel Radcliffe was rumored for the role of Moon Knight, but he debunked those rumors.
  • Oliver Jackson-Cohen, Ross Marquand, Pedro Pascal, CM Punk, Max Theriot, Daveed Diggs and Nick Kroll were all being considered for the role of Moon Knight.
