“Different”: Moon Knight Director explains how the series is “Different”

‘Moon Knight’ is unique and different from the rest of the MCU, according to Mohamed Diab, who is eagerly awaiting the film’s release.

For allowing Moon Knight director Mohamed Diab the opportunity to work on the series, he has high regard for Marvel Studios. The Emmy-winning Egyptian director revealed on the red carpet of the series premiere in Los Angeles on Tuesday night how much creative freedom the studio gave him and how the eagerly anticipated series is “different” from the rest of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.


Diab first approached Marvel Studios about the Moon Knight series two years ago, and he was confident that the studio would be interested in a project like this. However, what he treasures most about the series is that it can thrive on its own, without the Marvel label.


In terms of plot and theme, Moon Knight is a standout in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, which isn’t a bad thing. Ahead of their pitch to Marvel, Diab joked with Variety on the red carpet of Moon Knight’s premiere that if they “didn’t get the job, there is something wrong with the world.” When people saw the first two episodes at the premiere, many approached Diab and said that if they removed the Marvel tag, “it doesn’t feel like a Marvel show, in a good way.” Their pitch was so unique and unlike any other Marvel series released thus far.


With Moon Knight, Marvel Studios allowed Diab “the freedom to go crazy.” “The drama can be darker” because the studio-backed his horror ideas, he said. The recently released clip of Oscar Isaac’s Steven Grant meeting the Egyptian god Khonshu is the perfect example of how Moon Knight will introduce terror to the MCU.


However, horror will not be the only focus of Moon Knight. According to Diab, this show won’t fit neatly into any one genre. His assessment: “It’s a mix of everything from comedy to drama to horror to action and even touches on a serious subject like dissociative identity disorder.” Moon Knight appears to be following in the footsteps of Phase 4 of the MCU when it comes to putting mental health at the forefront of the narrative.


A new episode of Disney Plus’s Moon Knight is set to air on March 30, 2022.
