Marvel’s Moon Knight was stuffed with twists and surprises throughout its six-episode run on Disney Plus and one of many greatest was the looks of a fowl skeleton throughout Marc Spector’s flashback scene.
The look of this skeleton has nearly unanimously been interpreted as a tease of Khonshu coming into Spector’s life, however in an interview with the Direct, author Jeremy Slater says it was by no means supposed to be within the script.
“That wasn’t in the script. I don’t know if they found that on the day or if that was sort of added at some point, but for me that’s one of those details where I’m like, I didn’t come up with that, so I can’t say what it was supposed to mean. But as a storyteller, I see that and my mind starts immediately spinning, and I start asking a lot of questions…”
This flashback scene comes as one of many greatest reveals through the present’s final episodes offering context about Spector’s previous. In the flashback, solely Spector from the present time watching his recollections notices the small skeleton, but it surely’s not addressed any additional through the episode.
While he couldn’t present any solutions, Slater did pose questions on what it may probably imply.
“How early did Khonshu come into their lives? Has he been manipulating things from the start? Or is it just fun foreshadowing? Is it one of those things to make you question if all of this is just happening inside of Marc’s head, and none of it’s real? Or is it actually a bread crumb that leads to something bigger and more interesting down the road. I don’t know, but I think those theories are really fun.”
Fans seemingly gained’t be getting any closure about this unusual addition till Moon Knight seems as soon as once more within the MCU. While Moon Knight has been an enormous success, the present has but to be renewed for an additional season. The way forward for the white caped crusader is unknown throughout the present MCU, solely time will inform if they are going to make an eventual return.
