Iron Fist season 2 is just around the corner, and it seems at one point it was very close to including Moon Knight.
Alice Eve is bringing the comic character Typhoid Mary to life in the new season of Iron Fist, but during discussions about the character showrunner Raven Metzner revealed that she wasn’t the only new addition to the Marvel television universe that was considered.
When a fan asked Metzner about the character of Moon Knight Metzner replied “Adore. Grew up on the classic. Thought the Warren Ellis run was transcendent.” Another fan asked about the Lemire run on Moon Knight, and that’s when he revealed the character had actually been considered for the second season of the series.
Loved it. Moon Knight came up many times in the writers room as we discussed Typhoid Mary. https://t.co/uFlHJ4Hleq

Now, the odds of getting a fully costumed Moon Knight right off the bat were slim on their own, but even Marc Spector as a base character is incredibly interesting and would have made a unique addition to the show, as well as giving Marvel the chance to spin him off into his own series. The character’s been rumored before as a possible lead for his own show and even his own film, but for now, it’s just a compelling case of what could have been.
In the meantime though fans can catch Typhoid Mary in the new series, and you can check out the official synopsis for Iron Fist season two below.
