MOON KNIGHT: A FANTASTIC FOUR EASTER EGG IN THE TRAILER?

The Moon Knight trailer contains what looks like a major easter egg on the future of the Marvel Cinematic Universe .

In the scene where Steven Grant ( Oscar Isaac ) “wakes up” behind the wheel of a truck, and with a gun in his hand, a suspicious writing can be seen on one of the boxes in the back. The Spider-Mania Twitter page noticed it …

The writing in question is “Von D”, part of a logo that is otherwise blocked by the presence of the seat. Obviously the first thing that comes to mind is Victor Von Doom , who in the comics is the “civil” name of Doctor Doom . Should we therefore expect an entrepreneur Victor like in the Fantastic Four films directed by Tim Story ? Or will he be sovereign of Latveria And captain of industry? One thing does not rule out the other, especially if Marvel Studios are aiming for a “realistic” and up-to-date character update in the next film directed by Jon Watts . We’ll see.

The synopsis

A new globetrotting action-adventure series featuring a vigilante complex suffering from dissociative identity disorder. The multiple identities that live within him find themselves catapulted into a deadly war between gods against the backdrop of ancient and modern Egypt.

Moon Knight

Moon Knight is a vigilante created by Doug Moench (lyrics) and Don Perlin (drawings) on Werewolf by Night (first series) n. 32, released in August 1975. Under the mask hides Marc Spector , a former marine who starts working for the mercenary Raoul Bushman , but leaves him dying during an expedition to Egypt. The locals save him and bring him in front of the statue of the god Khonshu , who appears to him in a vision and asks him to become a warrior on Earth. Thus was born Moon Knight , superhero equipped with numerous gadgets invented by Spector, whose physical abilities increase to a superhuman level during the night.

Over the years, Spector suffers a psychic breakdown that leads him to suffer from depression, while Khonshu ‘s visions – perhaps due to his mental state – continue to haunt him. It also becomes much more brutal than in the beginning, and does not hesitate to kill the criminals.

The cast

Oscar Isaac will play the protagonist, Marc Spector . Also in the cast are May Calamawy , Ethan Hawke and Dina Shihabi .

The direction

The direction of various episodes will be handled by Mohamed Diab . The Egyptian filmmaker is best known for his feature film debut, Cairo 678 , considered a “harbinger” of the Egyptian revolution of 2011 (it came out a month earlier). In 2016, his Eshtebak (Clash) was selected for the Un Certain Regard section of the Cannes Film Festival, while his next film, Amira , will be released in 2021. Diab has also written The Island , the hugely successful Egyptian blockbuster.

Other episodes will be directed by Justin Benson and Aaron Moorhead , acclaimed independent directors in the fields of science fiction and horror. They are known for Spring , The Endless , Synchronic .

Production
