People love classic supernatural comedy Ghostbusters, but they presumably have a deeper connection to Brendan Fraser''s favorite romantic drama The Mummy, and the Marvel Cinematic Universe is the most popular franchise in modern Hollywood, so it''s no surprise that a combination of the three saw Moon Knight receive overwhelming support from critics, fans, and MCU newcomers.
This is not why we are making a comparison, but Jeremy Slater, a leading writer and executive producer who revealed to ComicBook that combining elements of three A-grade properties was a key part of his pitch to Marvel Studios when he was trying to convince the top brass that he was the right man for the job.
I stumbled upon a pitch that was suited for the stuff I love, particularly Raiders of the Lost Ark, its Ghostbusters, its Amblin films, and the Brendan Fraser Mummy film. Its things like that. It was very useful, but lets sort of wed it through this incredibly intense, crazy, globetrotting Indiana Jones-esque adventure, because that is something that hasn''t been previously done in the United Kingdom.
Despite the fact that the Slaters pitch ended up being a treat, you may pleasantly see several of the above influences coming out of Moon Knight, even though the supernatural streaming exclusive is quite its own thing, in the extent that it barely ties itself to the larger mainstream.
