Moon Knight Episode 1 Asks: Who is Marc?

We begin off the episode with a chilly open on … any person’s fingers resting on a desk and Bob Dylan’s “Each and every Grain of Sand” enjoying within the background. We quickly to find out that the ones fingers (and the forearm with the Egyptian-looking set of scales on it) are Ethan Hawke’s (Arthur Harrow). We have now some inklings of what Harrow’s deal is, with Hawke just lately calling his persona a “sane lunatic.” The hole scene confirms Hawke’s “sane lunatic” remark — Harrow smashes a tumbler, places the shards in his sandals, after which promptly places them on. Harrow, it sort of feels, is into some roughly methodical corporal mortification — one thing a sane lunatic would completely be into.

If we’d like every other trace that “Moon Knight” is not going to be like different MCU fare, the acquainted Surprise opening seems to be the similar however is overlaid with Engelbert Humperdinck’s “A Guy With out Love,” a ballad with uplifting lyrics like, “On a daily basis I get up, then I begin to get a divorce, lonely is a person with out love.”

“A Guy With out Love” is a great theme track for Steven, unfortunately; we see him pass about what was once perhaps an ordinary day for him: waking up anything else however refreshed, strapped to a mattress surrounded with sand; feeding his one-finned fish whilst leaving a voice message to his mum; in any case getting himself out the door handiest to leave out the bus and arrive past due to his task on the British Museum’s reward store.

It is on the museum we discover out “Steven with a V” is not revered at his position of employment, and that he’s a large Egyptian man, which is beneficial in giving us the exposition we probably want that there is a supergroup of 9 Egyptian gods known as the Ennead. We additionally to find out Steven has a date with a good looking excursion information and has no recollection of asking her out.

After paintings, Steven relays those tendencies in his love existence and the way he loses chunks of time to a type of efficiency artists who quilt themselves in gold and faux to be a statue. It is a one-sided dialog, after all, however this “statue” bears a canny resemblance to the nature within the comics named Crawley who’s one in every of Marc Spector’s excellent buddies. (The credit on the finish ascertain that this guy’s title is, certainly, Crawley, despite the fact that we do not know but if that is only a nod to the supply subject material or if statue-man may have a bigger function afterward.)
