Moon Knight was never too concerned with what was going on in the wider MCU, but it almost included a reference to an upcoming Marvel movie that would’ve been interesting.

EP Jeremy Slater recently revealed that his show was originally set to make some nods towards the events of Thor: Love and Thunder, but due to the MCU’s schedule being so up in the air thanks to the pandemic, they decided to hold off just in case the God of Thunder’s latest outing hadn’t hit theaters yet.

“The reality is that we had no idea—when we started working on the show, we didn’t know when we were debuting. We always sort of assumed it would be later down the road, and we would sort of be coming out in fall of 2022, and we thought we would probably be following Thor[: Love and Thunder]. But at that time, Thor didn’t necessarily have a concrete release date either, everything was sort of up in the air, and it’s like we might be ahead of Thor, or we might be finishing up.

So there were different versions of the script where the Gods would sort of talk about, ‘This thing with Gorr the God Butcher just happened, and now we’ve got this new problem.’ And then there were other versions of the script where they sort of talked about, ‘We’re hearing rumors [that] Gods are dying, this is not the right time to get involved.’ Like we tried to have our cake and eat it too.”

Moon Knight is now streaming on Disney Plus.
