Marvel Comics released its All New All Different comic books last year. The hype was crazy prior to release but once the books started hitting the shelves Marvel fans were not impressed. While the Marvel All New All Different attempt appears to be a failure, If you did not pay attention you may have missed the two diamonds on the ruff. Those two diamonds were Karnak and Moon Knight. For the sake of this article we will discuss Moon Knight but If you have not followed either Karnak or Moon Knights All New All Differents story lines start now! They are epic!
With out spoilers Marvels All New All Different Moon Knight introduces you to Moon Knight in a more modern orgin. Marc Spectors (Moon Knight) story starts with him in a mental hospital. The writiing is superb because it leaves the readers asking themselves "is this dude just insane? Or is what he is experiencing real?" What is most amazing is that we already know Moon Knight is a super hero but the amazing writing by Jeff Lemire leaves us wondering "is Moon Knight really a super hero or is all this just in his head?" Much like the Batman is really a mental patient in Arkham theory. With out spoiling.... thats about as much as we can say though. CGConFix hopes that if Moon Knight gets his own series that it is close to what we saw in Moon Knight All New All Different!
CGConFix can confirm that the rumor linking Moon Knight to Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol 2 has been squashed by James Gunn. Below is what James Gunn had to say concerning Moon Knight in Guardians Of The Galaxy.
Moon Knight fans do not be disheartened by James Gunns revelation that Moon Knight will not appear in Guardians Of The Galaxy volume 2! The reasoning for this is that Moon Knight would be best suited to appear in Netflix's The Dedenders series and then get his own series. Honestly we here at CGConFix would prefer Moon Knight to get his own series on Netflix (like Punisher) opposed to seeing him on the big screen in a movie! Why? Because would you rather have 1:45 minutes of Moon Knight or close to 13-17 hours of Moon Knight episodes to binge. Moon Knight having a series also allows the writers to not rush his orgin story therefor handing us a better product.
