Moon Knight, Marvel Studios’ first series of 2022, will be a fresh breath of air for all fans, deviating from the usual Marvel storyline to commence a new segment in the MCU, the supernatural segment. Marvel has been very bold with their phase 4 series, which have been very interesting and different from their earlier cape flicks.
Earlier, they only allowed reviewers to watch the first 2 episodes, while in this case, reviewers can watch the first 4 episodes, which proves their confidence in this show. Today, the world premiere event for Moon Knight ensued in Germany, complementary with the reactions of reviewers after watching the first 4 episodes of the show.
Moon Knight First Fan Responses
David Opie’s Response
“I’ve watched the first 4 Moon Knight eps and I’m as divided by this show as Marc himself. When it works, it’s a wildly original MCU entry with flashes of greatness, but some of the sillier aspects detract from the horror. Diehard comic fans might not enjoy it as much as newcomers”@DavidOpie on Twitter
Sab Astley’s Response
“Moon Knight is a brilliantly bonkers dark globe-trotting adventure; this is Marvel’s trippy National Treasure. Oscar Isaac is the best addition to the MCU since RDJ, entwining torment and humour into a morally ambiguous cypher – Marc Spector is a whole new calibre of hero.”@sab_astley on Twitter
Emily V Murray’s Response
“Delivering lots of Indiana Jones style archaeology action (swap out the whip for a cape) and Oscar Isaac’s great turn in the lead role – Moon Knight is plenty of fun.”@EmilyVMurray on Twitter
Thomas Storai’s Response
“I’ve watched the first 4 episodes of Moon Knight, it’s unlike anything we’ve seen before from the MCU. It’s a psychological thriller with a touch of Indiana Jones, it kept me on the edge of my seat the whole time. And Oscar Isaac delivers a mesmerizing performance.”@ThomasStorai on Twitter
Disney Plus News’ Response
“I’ve watched the first 4 episodes of Moon Knight & it’s unlike anything we’ve seen in the MCU – Oscar Issac is Fantastic! I can’t wait to watch the rest of the series. This isn’t your typical superhero origin. It’s Excellent!”@disneyplusnews on Twitter
“The series feels completely different to anything the MCU has ever done before. I’ll get more into it in the review but, in the four episodes I watched, I think I only found one single reference to the MCU at large………The humour of this show strays very far from the MCU’s usual, quippy tone. It manages to break, what I call, ‘the Stark Snark’ and carves out a new, dark humour bend for the MCU that I hope is the standard moving forward………@StreamrMo on Twitter
