Let’s chat about Moon Knight episodes 1-2, where some, but not all, questions are addressed.

Steven Grant had a horrible week. He enraged a cult, uncovered a dual personality, and fled some kind of supernatural monster that wasn’t mythological enough.

Let’s Talk about Moon Knight Episode 1-2

Marvel Entertainment

Today, the museum staffer is prepared to ask the difficult question. Who is Moon Knight, and who is Marc Spector, for that matter?

Are the convicts in charge of the asylum? And how can we know Spector isn’t a Tyler Durden story?

You’ve been fired.

Let’s Talk about Moon Knight Episode 1-2

Mr. Grant was last seen fleeing from some kind of Egyptian jackal. But suddenly his inner Moon Knight manifested itself and completely annihilated that creature.

Grant must now account for his behavior. He begins the day with glee, thinking that the cameras may have captured photos of the creature.

As a result, the museum employee returns to his work and requests that the security guard check the film. Unfortunately, this request fails miserably.

Let’s Talk about Moon Knight Episode 1-2

Marc Spector, probably as Moon Knight, has deleted the film, making Grant seem insane, which he may very well be.

Meanwhile, the security guard, who didn’t know Grant’s name until last week, is now aware of some, but not all, of the museum blunders.

To summarize, Mr. Grant no longer works in the gift shop…or the museum as a whole.

Let’s Talk about Moon Knight Episode 1-2

Grant uses this chance to commiserate with the living statue guy, who nearly breaks character for a split second as he looks in terror at Grant, an obvious madman.

Meanwhile, Grant discovers his calling. He’d attempted to talk to Spector earlier this morning by glancing in the mirror. Unfortunately, his opponent was not at home at the time.

Let’s Talk about Moon Knight Episode 1-2

So Grant has the brilliant notion of looking for security boxes throughout town.

At the fifth site, he hits gold when the security guy who aided Spector remembers him, despite the fact that he is now Grant.

The First Confrontation and the Romantic Entanglement

Let’s Talk about Moon Knight Episode 1-2

This is the point at which the program goes into overdrive for the week. A gun, as well as additional passports, are discovered among Spector’s things by the former museum employee.

Oh, and Grant finds a scarab. That’s the one. You may remember it as the event that almost killed him last week.

Conveniently, the space is made up of multiple glass panes that reflect shadows. Spector decides to check in and chat with his “symbiote” at this point.

Let’s Talk about Moon Knight Episode 1-2

MOON KNIGHT, a film from Marvel Studios, stars Oscar Isaac as Steven Grant. Marvel Studios provided the image. Marvel Studios 2022 Every right is reserved.

Spector tells his host that he cannot have Grant meddling in “what (he) has left to accomplish.”

Grant becomes the mercenary’s servant/avatar once the mercenary verifies that he serves Khonshu, the Egyptian deity of the moon, as his avatar.

Throughout the first half of the episode, Spector identifies the corpse in order to complete his assignment. However, he seems to be unable to take control until Grant is either agreeing or unconscious.

Let’s Talk about Moon Knight Episode 1-2

Grant escapes with the scarab, which is understandable. At this moment, he runs into Khonshu, who tells him, “Give it back, you idiot.”

Surprisingly, it isn’t the strangest element of these five minutes. Grant rushes outdoors and collides with…his wife, Layla.

This is the portion that not enough people are focusing on. Grant has no recollection of her or their connection.

Let’s Talk about Moon Knight Episode 1-2

Layla, for one, doesn’t understand why Marc Spector is acting as if he doesn’t know her…

Until Grant shows her his flat, that is.

When women learn that their husbands have hidden residences, divorce attorneys usually make a lot of money.

Instead, Layla begins to believe him.

Let’s Talk about Moon Knight Episode 1-2

Into the Darkness

Grant’s week hasn’t reached its zenith of bizarre yet. First, he discovers that his new wife, Layla, has divorce papers in her hands.

Marc, it seems, came up with the notion. Grant and Layla, on the other hand, seem to have a lot in common. His favorite poetry is hers, and they are both familiar with hieroglyphics.

Let’s Talk about Moon Knight Episode 1-2

The scarab is shown to the nebbish man’s wife. She confesses that the two of them had to fight together to win it back. Spector ran away from her.

The police come shortly after this disclosure. They claim to be police, after all. In reality, they work for Ammit/Harrow.

Layla manages to flee with the scarab for the time being, but we’re just getting started.

Let’s Talk about Moon Knight Episode 1-2

Under the cover of darkness, the detectives transport Steven Grant to Harrow, who treats him as a curiosity and a peer.

We’ve reached the point in the novel when the villain presents his case in the hopes of persuading Grant to join his cause.

Khonshu enters at this moment and begins demanding that Grant kill Harrow.

Let’s Talk about Moon Knight Episode 1-2

Here’s the episode’s first major surprise. Harrow had previously worked as the Moon Knight before resigning or being sacked.

The second revelation is that Khonshu has threatened Marc with Layla taking over as Moon Knight. That thought does not sit well with him.

Let’s Talk about Moon Knight Episode 1-2

I’ve been debating if Layla even exists throughout the episode. Then something happens that proves she’s not a fabrication of Steven’s mind.

Layla comes at Harrow’s village and displays the scarab. Members of the cult observe her and see her as a danger.

Harrow begins to use cane magic – really – and summons a demon as Layla and her fearful husband struggle to flee.

Let’s Talk about Moon Knight Episode 1-2

The sequel to Moon Knight.

The remainder of the show is reminiscent of Jim Carrey’s portrayal in The Mask.

I say this because Grant begins battling such monster, which is unseen to others. He notices it, but Layla does not.

Let’s Talk about Moon Knight Episode 1-2

As a result, the unexpected hero tries to fight back. While this is going on, Spector appears in reflections and begs Steven to “let me in.”

Grant rejects for whatever reason, but he respects Layla’s effort to “Summon the Suit,” as the episode’s title suggests.

Obviously, this situation devolves into slapstick. As a result, this outfit isn’t quite appropriate. Nonetheless, it contributes significantly to the plot’s development.

Let’s Talk about Moon Knight Episode 1-2

In this series, there are TWO Moon Knights. Spector’s version is a ferocious warrior capable of immediate annihilation.

Grant’s avatar has enormous power and is obviously skilled at improvisation.

When the struggle spills out onto the streets of this English suburb, Grant realizes he’s in over his head. All they see is a guy battling himself in a white suit.

Let’s Talk about Moon Knight Episode 1-2

So Grant relents and enables Spector to “take control…for the time being.” Moon Knight fights up several jerks before impaling the demon on a statue. It’s a tough route to take.

Following that, Spector notices Grant has dropped the scarab. Instead, a stranger finds it, only for Harrow to murder the individual and steal it.

Layla observes this from afar before Harrow spots her. At this time, she realizes that prudence is superior to bravery and drives away.

Let’s Talk about Moon Knight Episode 1-2

Finally, Grant and Spector discuss the difficulties of becoming Khonshu’s avatar. Grant requests the return of his body, but Spector refuses.

As the episode concludes, Spector is driving the mind cart and Grant is locked in the mirror as they go to Egypt. It’s an intriguing and surprising turn of events.

Last Thoughts

Let’s Talk about Moon Knight Episode 1-2

I was genuinely dreading writing this review since it was such an emotional episode.

The conversations between Grant and Spector are reminiscent of James McAvoy’s performance in Split.

But there’s something more at work here. Ethan Hawke is ecstatic about the chance to play a morally complex character.

Let’s Talk about Moon Knight Episode 1-2

I scarcely noticed it before, but his character has converted a crime-ridden region into a paradise, although via dubious means.

The finest villains are usually those who are absolutely convinced that they are on the side of morality. This is unmistakably Hawke.

Meanwhile, Oscar Isaac has heated discussions with…Oscar Isaac. He’s playing the role of a schizophrenia while acting against himself. It’s hypnotic.

Let’s Talk about Moon Knight Episode 1-2

This series’ acting is without a doubt the greatest we’ve seen in the MCU since WandaVision. I’m excited to see what happens next.

I’m also a fan of the comedic parts in episode 2. It gets an easy A.

Each and Every Show That Inspired the Disney+ Series WandaVision

WandaVision’s frequent allusions to classic television shows are a major part of its humor.

In January of 2021, WandaVision launched Phase 4 of the MCU, officially ushering in a new age of Disney+ shows. Indeed, it was the first time the MCU was seen on television, as it chronicled Wanda Maximoff’s (Elizabeth Olsen) reaction to the aftermath of Avengers: Endgame. In the end, WandaVision was a huge critical triumph, garnering a whopping 23 nods at that year’s Primetime Emmys.

WandaVision, as the first television series in the MCU, appropriately paid tribute to the medium of television by drawing inspiration from a wide range of programs throughout its history. WandaVision acknowledged a wide range of television classics by the end of the series, from The Dick Van Dyke Show to Modern Family. All the shows that served as models for WandaVision are listed here.

The Dick Van Dyke Show

The Dick Van Dyke Show, which follows the title man in his antics both at work and at home, is one of the earliest shows mentioned on WandaVision, appearing in the very first episodes. One of WandaVision’s primary inspirations comes from this episode. Matt Shakman, the show’s director, told Den of Geek that he and Van Dyke had lunch together to discuss the show’s production.

I Love Lucy

Featuring Lucille Ball as a New York housewife who dreams of becoming a star, I Love Lucy was a smash hit on television. Clearly, this program, along with The Dick Van Dyke Show, was an influence on the first two episodes of WandaVision. The most blatant example is the fact that couples could not be depicted in bed together during the airing of I Love Lucy. Two separate single beds were displayed instead of a double bed.

Couples could not be shown in bed together on television during the time that I Love Lucy was airing. Instead of a double bed, two single beds were displayed.

The Twilight Zone

The Twilight Zone

The Twilight Zone, the only non-comedic source of inspiration for WandaVision, is another source of the show’s unique style. The structure of the show has a narrator guiding the audience through a series of spooky stories set in a realm named “The Twilight Zone.” Jordan Peele just recreated the series, but he stuck with the same basic idea. Jac Schaeffer, the program’s creator, discussed WandaVision’s impact on the series and its storytelling, highlighting the impact the show had on the development of Wanda’s magic and the resolution of the Hex’s mysteries.

Bewitched

Bewitched, originally shown on ABC in the 1980s, has been remade numerous times throughout the history of film and television, most recently as a box office smash starring Nicole Kidman and Will Ferrell. Starring in the show is Elizabeth Montgomery as a witch attempting to lead the life of a typical housewife. WandaVision, in which Scarlet Witch and Vision disguise themselves as normal suburbanites, finds an apt inspiration in these stories.

The Brady Bunch

The Brady Bunch was a popular show from the 1970s about a nuclear family that ended up blending and raising six kids together. The third episode of WandaVision, as part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, plainly draws inspiration from The Brady Brunch, as the title card makes explicit reference to the show’s title show.

Good Times

A family living in a Chicago public housing complex experienced nothing but good fortune. The actress playing Monica Rambeau on WandaVision, Teyonah Parris, confirmed this was a running gag, and that the show’s effect can be seen even in later episodes. Good Times originated in the 1970s as a spin-off of Maude, which was itself a spin-off of All in the Family.

Full House

In Full House, Bob Saget played a widower father who enlists the support of his brother and closest friend, both of whom were also single parents. The episode in which WandaVision transitioned into the 1980s TV era was inspired by this show. Having grown so much, Billy and Tommy had altered the household dynamic. It’s worth noting that the Olsen sisters, Mary-Kate and Ashley, were featured prominently in the ABC show Full House, which served as inspiration for the show’s design.

Malcolm in the Middle

The popular sitcom Malcolm in the Middle from the 2000s focused on the eponymous character, a bright kid from a working-class family who struggled to fit in. In the sixth episode of WandaVision, there were multiple references to Malcolm in the form of dialogue and the opening titles were a direct homage to his. Furthermore, exactly as Malcolm did in his show, Tommy did in WandaVision, breaking the fourth wall.

The Office

WandaVision’s seventh episode included numerous allusions to contemporary sitcoms like The Office, especially in its mockumentary-style format, which featured interviews and glances directly into the camera. While Vision and Darcy are operating the circus truck, Vision occasionally turns his head to stare directly into the lens. When Agnes recognizes the camera, she once again reveals herself to be Agatha Harkness. It’s only fitting that a reference be made to The Office, which has had such an enormous impact on contemporary television.

Modern Family

When it comes to television, Modern Family is up there with the all-time greats. The show centers on the Pritchett family patriarch, Jay, and how his three children and their families interact. In the sixth episode of WandaVision, Wanda addresses the camera directly in a mockumentary style reminiscent of Modern Family. Wanda’s home is also quite similar to the Dunphys’ in terms of color scheme, design, and general vibe.

Who is the Wonder Man of Marvel Comics?
We had been expecting you, Simon Williams.

The following contains spoilers for some of Wonder Man’s comic book history, but will give you an overview of his background.

Marvel Comics readers have been wondering when Simon Williams, aka Wonder Man, would enter the MCU ever since the introduction of Vision in Avengers: Age of Ultron. With the confirmation that Destin Daniel Cretton, the man behind Shang-Chi, will be directing a Wonder Man series for Disney+, some of the answers to that question began to emerge. And in even more thrilling developments, it appears that Yahya Abdul-Mateen II will play Simon Williams in the film. If you seen Watchmen on HBO, in which Abdul-Mateen II portrayed Doctor Manhattan, you’ll find this casting even more intriguing. As the villain Black Manta in the Aquaman film series, he is no stranger to the superhero genre. But that’s not why we’re here; we want to speak about Simon Williams and his role in the future of the MCU, and in particular the fates of two of the most beloved star-crossed couples in the MCU canon.

Who is this mysterious Wonder Man, anyway?

Marvel

Wonder Man made his debut to readers on the cover of Avengers #9 in 1964. There was a banner that read, “Marvel Comics proudly introduces… Wonder Man, the newest, most dynamic surprise character from the world-famous House of Ideas,” and the cover art featured the looming heads of Thor, Captain America, Iron Man, Wasp, and Giant-Man looking down on their new superpowered foe. Even more so considering Wonder Man wouldn’t make it to the issue’s conclusion, it was a bold claim. Simon Williams was a normal man before he was kidnapped and subjected to “the most potent ionic rays” by Baron Zemo at his hideout in the Amazon Jungle, transforming him into a superhero with superhuman strength and invulnerability. What could possibly motivate such crazy research? The goal was to get Simon (now known as Wonder Man) into the Avengers organization and give him superpowers. In the end, Wonder Man decides to help the Avengers defeat Zemo, after initially agreeing with the plan. He pays the ultimate price for his brave decision. Zemo had poisoned him in secret and, after being deceived, had refused to give Simon the antidote. So long, Wonder Man.

The question is, how did Wonder Man make his way back? And if that was his last appearance, why is he getting a spinoff? In an event that would have lasting effects on Wonder Man and the Avengers, he was soon to play a pivotal role in the development of a legendary Marvel hero.

How Wonder Man are related with Scarlet Witch and Vision?


For four years and 51 issues, fans had to wait before seeing Simon Williams again in the pages of The Avengers. However, the style did not adhere to the norm for comic books. Unfortunately, he was not shown to be still alive or brought back from the dead. This guy wasn’t even a clone. Instead, he is shown to be instrumental in the creation of the synthezoid known as the Vision in the acclaimed story “Even an Android can Cry” by Roy Thomas, John Buscema, George Klein, and Sam Rosen. Something shocking is uncovered as the crew led by Iron Man investigates Vision’s origins and identity. Ultron, the villain, absconded with a valuable item, a “memory cassette” of Wonder Man’s brain. He put it to use in developing the Vision. Yes, in the comics the Vision is an android with a digital replica of Simon Williams’ brain, as opposed to the MCU, where he is formed via the combined efforts of Thor, Tony Stark, and Bruce Banner. The odd narrative may have ended there, but Wonder Man had more in store.

By revealing in Avengers #102 that Simon Williams had not been killed but had instead been in a coma since Avengers #9, Marvel Comics planted the seed for his eventual resurrection in 1972. Unfortunately for Simon, it wasn’t the Avengers but Kang, as part of his villain team Legion of the Unliving, that resurrected him in Avengers #131. Wonder Man’s relationship with Vision only grew in importance once he through a few more rebirths and officially joined the Avengers in 1977.

After living together for a while, the duo finally accepted their unorthodox connection and began to view each other as quirky but supportive siblings. Unfortunately, that was short-lived when a corrupt business destroyed Vision’s memory, rendering him emotionless. Simon’s understanding refusal to enable his loving wife Wanda to restore him via brain imprint donation to Vision was understandable. Because he had grown to love Wanda, even if she didn’t realize it for years. The affair was intense, but it ended when Wanda realized she still loved her one true love, Vision, too much to let him go.


What are Wonder Man’s powers?


What a fascinating query! The correct answer has evolved with the times, just like our favorite comic book heroes. We already know that his innate abilities granted him superhuman strength and indestructibility. His initial ionic experiments with Zemo gave him the foundation for his subsequent enhanced talents. Wonder Man appeared to be made entirely of pure energy after reviving from one of his numerous deaths, but the truth is more complicated.

Wonder Man has falsely claimed to be made of Ionic Energy on multiple occasions, however a more accurate description would be that it is embedded throughout his own flesh and bones. As a result of his extraordinary physiology, he can heal himself from wounds, fashion solid objects out of energy, and control magnetic fields. His peculiar abilities can be traced back to his past. Aside from that, Wonder Man possesses a host of classic superhero abilities, including flight, invulnerability, bulletproof skin, the ability to leap tall buildings in a single bound, extreme agility, and super reflexes. He also possesses latent powers, such as teleportation and shapeshifting, though he rarely employs them.

Isn’t it true that Wonder Man used to act?


Yep. Simon’s aspirations to become an actor are almost as well-known as his association with Vision. Wonder Man, who in the 1970s was a resident of the Avengers Mansion, left to strike out on his own. Simon left the Avengers #211 after Captain America attempted to downsize the squad to focus on his personal life in Avengers #211. He is now working with good old Hercules in his acting profession. He then tried his hand at acting before transitioning into the world of stunts in Hollywood, where he proved to be nearly unstoppable. Both West Coast Avengers Vol. 1 and his solo series Wonder Man detail that time period in his life. It’s easy to imagine that this will serve as a springboard for his Disney+ series.


What role Wonder Man will play in Marvel?


Simon Williams seems like a logical progression for the MCU after the events of WandaVision and the introduction of the memory-erased White Vision. The question that remains, though, is how the MCU will redefine the antihero in his pilot episode and throughout the franchise. The several possibilities we’ve discussed here show that this is so. Following a much-loved Marvel Cinematic Universe convention, this author speculates that Simon Williams was either an employee or rival of Tony Stark. The latter seems more realistic, given that his past in the ’80s comics was expanded to involve him competing with Stark Industries for cash.

It’s possible that the MCU will introduce the idea that Jarvis and eventually Vision were created using Williams’ coding skills or a physical brain imprint, giving him the crucial connection that the characters need. This would be a great opportunity for the MCU to further cement the brotherly bond between the two characters and bring him full circle back to Tony Stark. The Wonder Man TV show might also take place in the past to introduce audiences to the character and his background before he becomes part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. That may be a fun way to introduce audiences to Wonder Man before he officially enters the current MCU, while also incorporating some of the hilarious hijinks from his time in Hollywood. It’s also plausible that this path may leave Williams in a coma, where the MCU’s latest villain can revive him.


It seems likely that Kang will play a role in Simon’s primary introduction to the MCU, given the comics and the time of the Wonder Man series. Including the Legion of the Unliving in the MCU may be a fascinating development. It’s also possible that White Vision is discovered by scientist Kang, who then links the new synthezoid to Simon. However, we believe that Simon will become well-established in the series before being presented to the main MCU, where he will become connected with White Vision and the Avengers after becoming entangled with a revived Scarlet Witch. During the Kang Dynasty comic that inspired the new film’s title, Wanda and Wonder Man actually break up in the comics.

We won’t know until Disney+ launches the much-anticipated MCU series, though.
