Moon Knight is arguably one of the most obscure characters to make the jump from the comics to the MCU. I’ve been a fan of the character for years, and wasn’t sure what to expect from this series. It has been fantastic
Powers and relationships dominate this episode, and while there’s some action, it takes a back seat to several other things. We see the return of an old foe, some complications on the various jobs, and the beginning of a new subplot in “The Fire Next Time.”
Now, in an interesting spin on things, the tv shows based on the comics return to their roots in a six issue comic book series. “Earth Prime” visits several different shows from the CW, filling in some things we didn’t see, due to a combination of budget and COVID.
Now Moon Knight has appeared in the MCU via the Disney+ series, and it is, while still a superhero story, both a mystical fantasy and a psychological thriller.
This episode is odder than many, but in part, that’s actually due to the pandemic. Last season was cut short, so this is both a season opener and wrapping up some details they didn’t get to.
After a season of family drama, “flashback villains” (I love that term), and strained relationships, things are finally coming to a close for season three of Batwoman. As with several Arrowverse shows, the fate of the series hasn’t been decided yet as far as renewal versus cancellation.
Every once in a while, they let the writers have fun on a particular episode of an ongoing series. I suspect the writers’ room for Flash had a blast with this one. There’s not as much action as usual this time out, but they have a lot of relationship developments and some great dialogue.
This season was a bit shorter than the ones in the past, one character leaves, and, so far, there’s no definitive word on whether or not there will be a season 8.
Now we’ve met this incarnation of Steven Grant, and gotten at least a glimpse of Marc Spector, Moon Knight, and Khonshu. We’ve met Arthur Harrow, a very unusual villain, and gotten an idea of the problems facing all of them.
After several delays, Sony’s Morbius finally made it into the theater. After even more delays, I got a chance to see it. The really short version of this review is that it’s good, but not great. For a bit more in depth commentary, read on.
