Moon Knight Is Far More Gruesome Than Other MCU Series, Here’s Why

The new Marvel series Moon Knight is even more vicious and nasty than the other MCU episodes on Disney+. Moon Knight’s action is more akin to Marvel’s Netflix episodes like Daredevil and Punisher than to prior Disney+ shows like Loki and WandaVision. Why is Moon Knight more violent than previous Disney+ programs because it stars a street-level vigilante who struggles with numerous identities?

Marc Spector is an ex-CIA spy turned mercenary who nearly perished in the desert after being dumped while on an assignment, as created by Doug Moench and Don Perlin for Marvel Comics in 1975. Spector says he was saved by the Egyptian moon deity Khonshu after discovering an old tomb. Spector opted to accept his new role as Khonshu’s Fist upon his return to New York, working as the god’s high priest and functioning as the Moon Knight. While many people believe Spector is crazy (owing to the existence of other personas in his mind as a result of Marc’s multiple personality disorder), it is revealed in the comics that Khonshu is genuine and has selected Marc as his agent.

Marc Spector’s attempts to defend the streets of New York, inspired by his new deity, frequently result in his all-white cape and cowl turning crimson, stained with the blood of his opponents in the comics, and the same is accurate in the MCU adaption Moon Knight. Moon Knight contains several scenes depicting violent images, ranging from Moon Knight continuously pounding an unseen opponent who appears to already be down in a wrecked and barely illuminated restroom to another showing Oscar Isaac splattered with blood. Moon Knight, a vigilante who wears white so his foes can see him coming, is a vigilante who wears white to mirror the dark cruelty and violence he portrays in the comics.

Why Moon Knight Is More Violent Compared To Other MCU Shows

null
While past MCU programs have had their fair amount of action and strife, Moon Knight stands out in terms of combat scenes because of Marc Spector’s ruthless revenge. Moon Knight is therefore more on par with similar street-level characters like Matt Murdock’s Daredevil and/or Frank Castle’s Punisher, both of whose Netflix shows broke new ground with their increasing levels of violence for a Marvel program. Why is Moon Knight so much more violent than previous MCU series like Wandavision, Falcon & The Winter Soldier, and Loki? It all boils down to the character being the proper fit.

null
Overall, it’s ideal that Moon Knight embraces the horror that Marc Spector has long exhibited in the comics. After all, he is the vigilante who, in his darkest hours, cut crescents into the corpses of perpetrators who had the misfortune of becoming his victims. While Marc Spector is a seeker of justice, he frequently does so in a brutal manner. As a result, Moon Knight being the MCU’s most aggressive series on Disney+ thus far makes sense and qualifies it as a great overall portrayal of Moon Knight’s persona.

How Violent & Bloody Is Moon Knight?

null
Moon Knight isn’t really a no-holds-barred horror fest, but it’s certainly nastier than previous Disney+ episodes. Moon Knight’s combat style is fierce, and he goes considerably further than other well-known Marvel characters. The amount of violence exhibited onscreen vs. inferred offscreen determines how violent Moon Knight is. Because Steven, one of Marc Spector’s alters, is the main perspective in Moon Knight episode 1, most of the violence is hidden. The bulk of the episode maintains its violence suggested rather than seen, and blood leakage is kept to a bare minimum, with just a brief moment of body horror due to an injury to Steven’s jaw. Nevertheless, when the Moon Knight identity takes over more and incidences of death and supernatural gore/horror become more regular, episodes get increasingly violent and gruesome.
