Marvel Studios has been on the right track since they started releasing their Phase 4 lineup with deals like Black Widow, Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings, The Eternals, Wanda Vision, Loki, moon knight, and the rest of their Disney+ series. The latter came out earlier this year starring Oscar Isaac as the titular Marvel hero, and it was definitely a hit with viewers. moon knight is a character with dissociative identity disorder, which makes for some interesting decisions in the series. Marc Spector is the main character, with Steven Grant being one of the alternate personalities. While we can’t see the third personality, Jake Lockley, until the show’s final moments, there are hints throughout of his presence. Marc Spector and Steven Grant both get different costumes when they become Moon Knight, so it’s assumed that when Jake Lockley dresses up, he’ll also don a different costume. A Marvel fan recently created a cool concept of what this costume might look like.
An artist on Instagram who goes by the handle of @SavageComics created a very different look for Jake Lockley’s Moon Knight costume. In concept, he gives the character a mask similar to Steven Grant’s version of the costume, while making him look older with black and gold Egyptian clothing. In addition to Moon Knight’s classic crescent-shaped throwing star, the character gets a bo stick that perfectly matches Jake Lockley. You can check out the fan art below!
Moon Knight the future is definitely in limbo right now even though the show did feature a post-credits scene that sets up some interesting things for the character, so hopefully we can see where Marc Spector and Steven Grant end up most as soon as possible. During a new interview with the director of SFX Magazine, Mohamed Diab revealed that Moon Knight is here to stay.
“If you ask me, I’d tell you Moon Knight is here to stay,” Diab explained. “He’s an interesting character. If you’re Marvel, I think the smart business decision is to keep him. The only thing is that Marvel isn’t traditional. If you’re successful, that doesn’t mean you’ll get a season. 2. By the way, I’m kept in the dark. I have no idea. I’m just thinking as a businessman right now. But I think they’ll stay. Maybe that’s it. It’s gonna be a movie. Maybe it’s gonna be a journey like what happened with WandaVision. I wish someday, if there’s an expansion, I’m a part of it. We ended in a way that feels like a start. You see Mark and Steven become a new dynamic, the two of them in one body. We see Jake. You see the Scarlet Scarab, who might or might not be a superhero Very interesting stuff.
Marvel Studios and Disney+ describe the series as: “moon knight follows mild-mannered gift shop clerk Steven Grant, who is plagued by power outages and memories of another life. Steven discovers he has dissociative identity disorder and shares a body with mercenary Marc Spector. As Steven/Marc’s enemies converge on them, they must navigate their complex identities while embroiled in a deadly mystery among the mighty gods of Egypt.” All Episodes from Marvel Studios moon knight are now available on Disney+!
