What To Watch Before Watching Marvel’s Moon Knight
As the new marvel hero is making his debut, you don’t need to watch anything beforehand to understand the miniseries. But it might help if you watch The Eternals, released on November 5, 2021.
The director of the show said, “My movies are hard, serious, and about big topics, and we feel that Moon Knight is going to be like that. It’s going to be entertaining but also heavy”.
This miniseries deals with a person who suffers from a mental health condition and shows how he turns into a Marvel hero in the process. There will be a lot of disturbing scenes for the audience heavy, and emotion-targeted scenes as well because the show deals with mental health conditions and nocturnal vigilantism.
The series is definitely worth your time because the theme isn’t normal like other shows where the hero is good and does good, and the villain is bad. This time it’s the hero who does things that a normal hero wouldn’t do. The plot is breaking the rules, and that’s what the audience likes to see. Hopefully, the show will do well. So go stream it when it releases.
