It won't be an exaggeration to say that the Moon Knight was the least hyped of the Disney+ MCU TV shows. Perhaps this was because Moon Knight was not based on the character that we had already seen in the MCU. The series didn't seem much connected to the larger picture of MCU, which is dealing with the Multiverse or the consequences of blips or the retired superheroes.
Many fans, including myself, weren't expecting much from the series. Indeed, there were big expectations, but those were nowhere near the par set by What If, Wanda Vision, or Loki. Of course, the show appealed to the MCU fans who are currently not in the mood of skipping anything Marvel. A part of the reason for the lack of hype was perhaps the shadow created by the show's scheduling, which was just between quickly the two much-hyped movies of the MCU, No Way Home and Multiverse of Madness.
However, despite the low expectations, Moon Knight has set a new par for the MCU TV shows above the ones created by its predecessors, which was, of course, a very tough ask.
The series starring Oscar Isaac and Ethan Hawke is one of its kind in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The series takes MCU to a much darker level while not leaving the simplicity that the MCU shows often rely on. The show has just perfected to be a blend of genres.
'Not seeming to be much connected to the larger picture of MCU' has been one of the show's strengths, as it will not affect the understanding of the enjoyment of the show of those who have not even watched a single Marvel movie or know nothing about it.
The show is in part a Psychological Thriller blended with Horror Fantasy and in part a great show about an ordinary man who is struggling with his existential crisis and dissociative personality disorder.
Apart from the brilliant performances of Oscar Isaac, the antagonist Ethane Hawke and the female lead May Calamawy have not left a stone unturned with their brilliant performance.
The show does not take references from past movies, which negates the possibility of it spoiling the past films and preserves the experience of those who are watching a Marvel show for the first time. So, The Moon Knight might be a great place for you to get into the MCU or even watch it single without "bothering" much about the Marvel Universe.
