"Moon Knight"'s Credit Scene May Influence the Way forward for the MCU

“Moon Knight,” Disney+’s newest Marvel sequence, left one massive reveal for the very finish of its sixth and closing episode. A credit scene revealed what many followers had suspected through the present’s run: that Moon Knight’s dissociative id dysfunction gave him one other persona that Marc Spector and Steven Grant did not find out about.

Throughout the credit, the present cuts to a scene of Arthur Harrow (Ethan Hawke) in a psychological hospital, very similar to the one which Marc (Oscar Isaac) finds himself in throughout episodes 4 and 5. A mysterious man talking Spanish seems and wheels Harrow away. He whistles a track as they exit the hospital, and Harrow notices lifeless our bodies round them.

The person takes Harrow exterior Sienkiewicz Psychiatric Hospital (named for “Moon Knight” comics artist Invoice Sienkiewicz) and places him in a white limousine. Additionally at the back of the limo? The Egyptian god Khonshu (F. Murray Abraham), who freed Marc and Steven from his service on the finish of the episode.

Harrow is smug at first, as a result of he believes, with out Marc and Steven, Khonshu cannot damage him. However Khonshu corrects him.

“You wanna know one thing?” he asks. “Marc Spector really believed that after he and I parted methods, I wished his spouse to be my avatar. Why would I ever want anyone else when he has no thought how troubled he really is?” Khonshu faucets on the window behind him, and the person rolls it down.

“At present is your day to lose,” Jake says in Spanish, and he shoots Harrow a number of instances earlier than driving off.

Earlier episodes of the sequence closely foreshadowed the looks of one other persona. A number of instances, Marc and Steven would each black out, and when one among them got here to, they might discover lots of our bodies and would not keep in mind doing any attacking. In episode 4, when Marc and Steven are within the psychological hospital, they go a second sarcophagus just like the one Steven got here out of, shaking with life. They do not open it up, nevertheless it was Jake who was inside.

Sequence cinematographer Gregory Middleton and episode 4 director Aaron Moorhead informed Marvel that additionally they tried to visually foreshadow Jake’s arrival through the use of reflections. When Steven or Marc makes use of a mirrored image to speak to himself, there’s additionally often a 3rd, smaller reflection that viewers may not have seen the primary time round.

Jake does seem as one among Moon Knight’s personalities within the comics and is a cab driver who has many contacts on the streets who can get him data. Within the MCU, it appears Jake is definitely the character’s most ruthless persona, extra lethal than even Marc, the previous mercenary.

What Jake’s look means for the way forward for Moon Knight — and the MCU — is anybody’s guess. Disney has stated “Moon Knight” is a restricted sequence, nevertheless it’s clear it has plans for extra tales involving Marc, Steven, Jake, and Layla (Might Calamawy).
