As the second season of Iron Fist is inching closer, it has been revealed that at one point, the show was actually really close to include Moon Knight in its second season.
The new season of Iron Fist will see Typhoid Mary coming to life but recently showrunner Raven Metzner revealed that Mary wasn’t the only addition that was considered by the creators.
Metzner answered a fan on Twitter when he was asked about Moon Knight saying, “Adore. Grow on the classic. Though the Warren Ellis run was transcendent.” When asked about Lemire’s run on Moon Knight, he revealed that the character has been earlier considered for the series.
Loved it. Moon Knight came up many times in the writers room as we discussed Typhoid Mary. https://t.co/uFlHJ4Hleq

He even revealed that Moon Knight appeared many times during the discussion of Typhoid Mary. But we won’t really get to see a fully costumed Moon Knight in the show though even a Marc Spector as the base character would’ve looked an equally interesting addition to the show, which would have provided Marvel an opportunity to spin-off his own series later.
It stars Finn Jones, Jessica Henwick, Sacha Dhawan, Tom Pelphrey, Jessica Stroup, Simon Missick and will introduce Alice Eve as Mary Walker. Here’s the official synopsis of Iron Fist season 2:
Iron Fist Season 2 features Danny Rand (Finn Jones) as he fights against the criminal element corrupting New York City with his kung-fu mastery and ability to summon the awesome power of the fiery Iron Fist.

This season, Dann y has promised that with Matt Murdock gone, he will step up and protect his city. But a sinister plot twist threatens his very identity and he must conquers his villains to protect the town and people he holds close to his heart.”
