Scarlet Scarab’s Secret Origin: Moon Knight 

One of the finest moments in Marvel’s just concluded Moon Knight series is when Layla El-Faouly (May Calamawy) accepts to serve as the Egyptian goddess Taweret’s temporary human avatar. This occurs at a pivotal point in the season finale, when Marc Spector/Steven Grant/Moon Knight (Oscar Isaac) and the deity Khonshu want all the assistance they can get to battle the goddess Ammit, who has been freed by Arthur Harrow (Ethan Hawke) to kill most of mankind. 
Layla appears in an incredible suit with terrifying abilities, and has subsequently been called the Scarlet Scarab by Marvel. While Harrow and Ammit are eventually vanquished (due in part to the efforts of Jake Lockley, the third personality in Spector’s body), Layla’s future as Taweret’s avatar and as a superhero remains unknown. 

Mohamed Diab, the director, tells how Moon Knight transformed Layla El-Faouly into the Scarlet Scarab.

While Harrow and Ammit are eventually vanquished (due in part to the efforts of Jake Lockley, the third personality in Spector’s body), Layla’s future as Taweret’s avatar and as a superhero remains unknown. 

Layla, Marc Spector’s wife and fellow adventurer, is a Disney+ series original, however she was at least partly inspired by Marlene Alraune, his girlfriend and ultimate wife in the comics. In the comics, the Scarlet Scarab moniker has nothing to do with Moon Knight, with the original male form of the character appearing in Thor and The Invaders novels. 

According to series director and executive producer Mohamed Diab, the character of Layla in Moon Knight was not originally intended to be Egyptian. “First and foremost, I have to give it to the authors,” Diab says. “They had the bright notion of creating Layla Egyptian… When Sarah [Goher, Diab’s wife and artistic partner] and I arrived, we certainly added some Egyptian flavor. When May arrived, she quickly became the character’s best lawyer, and she had a lot of influence on her.” 

Diab isn’t sure whether “Marvel or the authors” came up with the concept of giving Layla her heroic moment, but placing the world’s first Egyptian superhero onscreen was an immediate home hit for him. “This was the finest idea in the world,” he boasts. “Today, Egyptians are coping with the show and Layla as feeling represented and seen — it seems like this is our Black Panther.” In Egypt right now, everyone in the program is a hero.” 

“And it’s not only Egypt,” the filmmaker adds. People in the Middle East and South Asia…everything seems similar, so people feel represented. My five-year-old daughter wanted to straighten her wavy hair since she had never seen someone on television who looked like her. But now, I believe this will effect a large number of girls and even guys all across the globe.” 

When a little girl sees Layla in action on the street and asks her directly whether she is an Egyptian superhero, the impact of that image strikes home. “I am,” Layla says before propelling herself and her gleaming golden wings back into the fight against Ammit. It’s a brief but powerful moment, the conclusion of Moon Knight’s meticulously researched and thorough investigation of Egyptian culture and society free of the clichés that plague Hollywood representations of the Middle East. 

“I hope we could play this on a wide screen one day,” Diab adds. “This is really a momentous occasion. There are often stereotypes about Arab women being subservient. But Layla embodies the truth, which is that Arab women – and indeed women in Third World nations who live under tough situations – are stronger as a result. That was a very crucial aspect to represent. Even if she didn’t become a superhero, she would have been a formidable figure.” As previously said, Layla’s future is uncertain for the time being, not only since her association with Taweret was only brief, but also because we don’t know whether Moon Knight will return for a second season. We do know this: if there is a Season 2, we want to see the Scarlet Scarab return to the Marvel superhero pantheon.

Armor Wars Movie: from Marvel Disney+ Series To A Film

Due to creative adjustments, the TV series starring Don Cheadle will now be turned into an MCU – Armor Wars movie. The most of the Disney+ series that Marvel Studios had planned have already been released, but Armor Wars has been stuck in development for a while. Even though it had been announced in 2020, James Rhodes’ spinoff show hadn’t received any updates until 2022. In 2008’s Iron Man, Terrence Howard played Rhodes; in Iron Man 2, Cheadle took over as War Machine, and he has since continued to feature in several MCU projects.

Despite being a part of Phase 5, the Armor Wars TV series on Disney+ is being redesigned as an MCU – Armor Wars movie, with Don Cheadle remaining attached to play War Machine.

Due to creative adjustments, the TV series starring Don Cheadle will now be turned into an MCU – Armor Wars movie. The most of the Disney+ series that Marvel Studios had planned have already been released, but Armor Wars has been stuck in development for a while. Even though it had been announced in 2020, James Rhodes’ spinoff show hadn’t received any updates until 2022. In 2008’s Iron Man, Terrence Howard played Rhodes; in Iron Man 2, Cheadle took over as War Machine, and he has since continued to feature in several MCU projects.

War Machine is followed by Armor Wars following Phase 3, which resulted in the demise of his closest friend, Tony Stark. The Disney+ drama will, according to confirmation, follow the events of Secret Invasion, in which Cheadle will next play the Marvel character. Despite Disney’s commitment to creating the series, Armor Wars was not included in any of the Phases 5 or 6 slates that Marvel Studios presented at San Diego Comic-Con. One of the key Armor Wars stories, according to Cheadle in an interview from earlier this month, would include Tony Stark’s technology going out into the open, with Rhodey having to stop the wrong people from using it.

The Hollywood Reporter has revealed that Armor Wars is being retooled into a feature picture, causing a significant shake-up within Marvel Studios. The company decided that a movie would be a better choice as opposed to a 6-episode series since they were dedicated to “having the tale conveyed the proper way.” The movie’s screenplay will be written by the film’s head writer, Yassir Lester, who is still employed. Production had been planned to begin in 2023, but this most recent development has forced a postponement. The Armor Wars information was released shortly after the director of the Blade reboot was fired.

How the MCU Will Be Affected by the Filming of Armor Wars Movie

Armor Wars

While Armor Wars’ continual postponement is a problem in and of itself, Cheadle’s character might gain from the film’s decision. Despite the fact that War Machine has been in a lot of MCU movies, he has never been the main character in any of the plots. Despite Rhodes having his own show at first, a feature film offers him a greater stage for obvious reasons. Additionally, this would give War Machine his own cinematic prominence after serving as Iron Man’s sidekick throughout the duration of the MCU. Marvel has adapted a product from one medium to another before, and Armor Wars is hardly the only instance of this. The Royal Family was supposed to have its own Phase 3 movie before The Inhumans became a TV show, but instead received a short series on ABC that had a poor outcome.

The length of Armor Wars’ delay as a result of the move from Disney+ to theaters is yet unknown. Armor Wars may have to wait until Phase 6 even if it takes place after Secret Invasion unless Marvel discovers a window in Phase 5 that makes sense. Due to the enormous lag between the conclusion of Secret Invasion and the release of Cheadle’s movie, it’s probable that the tie-ins from Secret Invasion will be eliminated if Armor Wars is redeveloped as a feature film. There is a likelihood that Armor Wars was always a Phase 6 project because the slate wasn’t fully revealed at San Diego Comic-Con. It is unclear how Armor Wars will fare as a movie unless Cheadle, Feige, and Marvel Studios make announcements.
