Our pals over at MCUCosmic have posted an early character rumor for Marvel’s Moon Knight series for Disney+.
They are claiming that a source has told them that Moon Knight’s baddie Stained Glass Scarlet will show up but the size of the role is currently undetermined.
According to a reliable source, Stained Glass Scarlet will appear in the series. I do not know if she’s the main villain or something different in the story, but she’s been a villain in the Moon Knight comics since her first appearance way back in Moon Knight #14.
Her real name is Scarlet Fasinera, a former nun that uses a crossbow as a weapon of choice but also knows martial arts and uses guns.
Moon Knight has yet to have an official showrunner/writer, director or lead actor announced. However, this could be another sign that casting is currently underway.
It’s likely we’ll see more notable villains in Moon Knight like Raoul Bushman, Randall Spector aka Shadow Knight, Carson Knowles aka Black Spectre, and Robert Markham aka Morpheus.
Here is a rundown of Moon Knight’s origin.
Born in Chicago, Illinois, Marc Spector is a Jewish-American rabbi’s wayward son. As an adult, Spector had been a heavyweight boxer before becoming a U.S. Marine serving in Force Recon, afterward, he left the Marines to become a mercenary occasionally doing work for the CIA. He is a strong and skilled combatant and befriends the mercenary French pilot Jean-Paul DuChamp, whom he affectionately calls “Frenchie”. While working for the African mercenary Raoul Bushman in Egypt, the group stumbles upon an archaeological dig whose crew includes Dr. Peter Alraune and his daughter Marlene Alraune. The dig had uncovered an ancient temple where artifacts included a statue of the Egyptian moon god Khonshu. Intent on looting the dig, Bushman kills Dr. Alraune. In response to Alraune’s murder, Spector challenges Bushman to personal combat and is defeated by Bushman and left to die in the sub-zero temperatures of the desert night.
The Egyptians who worship the ancient gods find Spector and carry him to their temple. Helpless before the statue of Khonshu, Spector’s heart stops. Khonshu appears to him in a vision, offering Spector a second chance at life if he becomes the god’s avatar on Earth. Spector awakens, wraps himself in the silver shroud that covers Khonshu’s statue, and again confronts Bushman. He defeats Bushman and returns to America with Marlene, Frenchie, and the statue of Khonshu. Deciding to become a crimefighter, Spector creates a silver cloaked costume, based on the silver shroud, and becomes Moon Knight aka “The Fist of Khonshu”.
Marvel Studios/Disney have yet to announce when the series will drop on Disney+.
While the series has the working title Good Faith when they hope to begin filming is currently unknown.
Other hard-canon MCU shows coming to Disney+ include The Falcon & The Winter Soldier, WandaVision, Loki, Hawkeye, Ms. Marvel, and She-Hulk.
