Moon Knight is that property which fans desperately want to see a live action adaptation of. So the announcement that it is indeed getting a show on Disney+ took the internet by storm. But after the storm settled, everyone began theorizing and speculating about the ways Moon Knight could connect to the MCU. Now, we finally have a answer to this and this will surely blow some minds.
Moon Knight will Connect To Blade
This news comes from Daniel Richtman who is a film scooper on Twitter. He posted a very tantalizing rumour on his Patreon account. You should know that Daniel only posts the most exclusive scoops on his Patreon account. There he said that Moon Knight will connect to Blade. We don’t know right now who has been casted for Moon Knight (but we and other Marvel artists do think that Keanu is the perfect guy for this). But we do know that Mahershala Ali will play the titular role in Blade (a decision which has been supported by previous Blade star Wesley Snipes). Also, a connection between them certainly does seem possible especially since both heroes don’t have any magical or cosmic power of sorts. But they are street level heroes who have a supernatural origin.
Kevin Feige did say that the Disney+ shows are critical for understanding the Phase 4 movies of the MCU. Moreover, something like this happening will also ensure that Moon Knight will eventually show up in the MCU.
Don’t Take This As Confirmation
While you should keep your hopes up but we would definitely also advise you to somewhat tamper them. Richtman history of accuracy regarding such scoops is very spotty. If this rumour turns out to be false, even then you can rest assured that someway or the other Moon Knight will definitely connect to the MCU.
Disney+’s Moon Knight series has yet to receive a release date.
