Annlyel reacts to the newest episode of Marvel Studios’ Moon Knight
The premiere of Moon Knight was as entertaining and compelling as any premiere for a Disney+ show that I’ve seen. It perfectly established this new corner of the universe the show is residing in, it introduced us to how menacing Ethan Hawke would be as the antagonist, Arthur Harrow, and it proved that Oscar Isaac made a good choice by speaking in a British accent as Steven Grant. When the first episode ended I was buzzing. Waiting a week for the second episode has never been more painful. Now it’s here and I can confirm that this episode was just as entertaining as the first.
Swapping action scenes for the necessary exposition was perfect for this episode because we need to understand what’s going on. There’s only so much guessing we, the audience, can do, and this episode delivers plenty of fun moments. There’s more Konshu, Layla has officially entered the chat and she seems like another likable female character in the MCU, Arthur Harrow is another intriguing antagonist, and we got more Moon Knight! Oh, and can we just talk about how hilarious this show can be at times?
Having Steven Grant in the Mr. Knight suit was one of the funniest moments in the entire MCU. The invisible fighting was perfect and I loved that they showed that scene from multiple perspectives to drive home the madness of that moment as well as the hilarity. I love seeing new things happen in this franchise and that moment was priceless. Now we’re heading to Egypt and I am so excited to see what lies in store in the next episode.
Moon Knight feels so much different than anything else in this franchise and I love that. It just makes it that much more exciting if he does ever meet any of the other MCU heroes. And why am I hoping we get a Moon Knight/Deadpool team-up in the future because I think that could be one of the best things to ever happen in Marvel?
All in all, this show’s first two episodes have been absolutely delightful and I’m so glad we’ve got four more.
Moon Knight is streaming on Disney Plus now!
