Details on whether or not there will be any connection between Moon Knight and Thor4 have been revealed by the show’s writer Beau DeMayo. The Egyptian deity Khonshu, the Egyptian god of the moon, makes his first appearance in the MCU in Moon Knight, the film’s most recent instalment. Marc Spector serves as his Earthly alter ego. Zeus, the head of the Greek gods, will join Chris Hemsworth’s Thor, Tom Hiddleston’s Loki, and Anthony Hopkins’s Odin in the Marvel Cinematic Universe in Thor: Love and Thunder, which is due out in 2017.
However, Christian Bale’s Gorr the God Butcher is also introduced in Thor: Love and Thunder. New Asgard and the Greek Gods are in jeopardy thanks to Gorr, and many viewers are wondering if the Egyptian gods from Moon Knight will play any role in the upcoming Thor movie, which has released a trailer showing some of the death and destruction Gorr will leave in his wake. Moon Knight’s premiere comes just a few months before the release of Thor: Love and Thunder, so there’s a possibility of a crossover between the two films.
Thor: Love and Thunder’s final episode may or may not reference Moon Knight, according to writer Beau DeMayo, who spoke to The Direct about the possibility of the Egyptian gods from the film making an appearance. Thor: Love and Thunder’s writer admits he has no idea what’s going on, but he has considered it. It’s also important for him to enjoy the film as a fan, so he prefers not to know what will happen.
“You know, I don’t know what they are doing in [Thor: Love and Thunder]. My honest answer is ‘I don’t know’… You do have to wonder. I’m really excited to see it. You know, it’s a question on my mind. I’m like curious when I see Thor, like, ‘Is there going to be something? Is there not?’ That’s kind of like—well, that’s the thing at Marvel when you’re writing for them is that they’re very, very creatively collaborative, but you are kind of in your silo, your show. What I kind of like about that is, the moment I start knowing how the sausage is made on Thor, or something, I can’t enjoy that movie as a fan, you know? And I came out here to write Marvel stuff, honestly. So, I kind of like that I don’t know. I’m like trying to avoid spoilers myself [laughs]… It’s like the moment you learn how Starbucks coffee is made because you work there, suddenly Starbucks coffee is far less fancy to you.”
Moon Knight’s future in the MCU is still up in the air. As of now, Isaac is only signed on for Moon Knight, so it isn’t clear where or when the character will appear next in an MCU context. In contrast, characters such as Khonshu open up the Moon Knight tales to the cosmic side of the MCU represented by the Thor franchise and the Eternals.
Depending on the release date of a film, Marvel Studios can add and remove elements from it. Recently, Bruce Campbell spoke out about how Marvel insisted that Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness include sequences because of upcoming projects. If Marvel Studios wanted to make a connection between Thor: Love and Thunder and Moon Knight, they could easily use CGI and voice acting work from F. Murray Abraham and Antonia Salib to bring the characters from Moon Knight to life. They could also do the same with another Egyptian god from the series, Taweret.
