Grant Curtis, the producer of Moon Knight, has written out more about the potential MCU versions that weren''t successful.
While discussing the Phaze Zero podcast, Curtis explained why the team chose not to have the Eternals appear on the show. Last week, news revealed that at least one of the Eternals, Kingo, was scheduled to appear on the show, but as Curtis notes, this was in the early days of production.
Early days It''s such a huge universe that Kevin, Lou, and Victoria have created over the years with seemingly a slew of other great producers at Marvel. And the kneejerk reaction is to try to ask if you can play with all of the toys, whatever the situation will be.
Because once we began to grapple with Marc Spector, that is Steven Grant, that is Jake Lockley, and this incredible Egyptian god thats manipulating them, Khonshu, the more connectivity points just faded away and the more we have what you guys saw on screen. I think this is why we have a better show.
Last week, Moon Knight writer Jeremy Slater stated that he wanted to involve Kingo and that he would have appeared during a flashback sequence to ancient Egypt at the start of the series. In this scene, a former vessel of Khonshu would have teamed up with the Eternals, but ultimately they believed it would be too costly to create.
While Moon knight did not include any crossovers with other MCU characters, the series still received widespread praise from fans and critics for its unique narrative and powerful story.
The future of Moon Knight in the MCU right now isn''t clear, but perhaps we might still see the character alongside the Eternals in a future Marvel Studios production.
