While addressing the topic, Winderbaum elaborated that they are keeping the endings more open now, He later adds, “I think. We don’t have to tie up every loose end and when you create characters as strong as Moon Knight and Scarlet Scarab, we can confidently go into the future knowing that there are more stories left to tell and new characters that we can bring into telling them.”

Why are fans left confused?

Fans still don’t know if the Moon Knight was set after the blip or even the multiverse. In an interview with The Direct, Jeremy Slater, the Head Writer of Moon Knight revealed that Marvel had a few suggestions for their story and wanted them to “steer clear” of the blip and the multiverse. He later adds, “There were certain territories and topics where we were told early on because Marvel’s always very conscious about repeating themselves. They want to always be sort of stretching and finding new corners of the universe to explore,”
