Marvel Studios’ Moon Knights has been a pretty wild ride for audiences worldwide. Viewers have been following Oscar Isaacs Steven Grant when he found out he was sharing his body with another person he was obsessed with an Egyptian god and it could be about to go crazy. The reception has been pretty brilliant across the board, with Marvel Studios apparently delivering another hit.
In the latest episode, the audience finally got the background behind Marc Spector and the trauma that gave birth to his dissociative identity disorder. But for many, the installment ended quite abruptly.
After all, there seems to be so much left for the series to cover. Marc must be revived, Khonshu liberated, Harrow defeated, Layla reunited with – the list seems long.
With how much the finale has to go over, one would assume that the sixth episode can get a little long.
Oddly enough, it seems to be the exact opposite.
Record-Baking Final Length
According to industry insiders Amit ChaudhariThe coming Moon Knights finals will run approximately 44-45 minutes long at Disney + in the US and other regions with subtitles. This will make it the shortest of all live-action MCU show finals to date that breaks Lokis final runtime record:
For those who keep track, here are the final game times for every other Marvel Studios series at Disney + in the US:
WandaVision: 51 minutes
The Falcon and the Winter Soldier: 53 minutes
Loki: 48 minutes
What if…?: 37 minutes
Hawkeye: 62 minutes
Moon Knight’s conclusion may be a little short
Marvel Studios’ Disney + projects tend to falter in their finale. Both WandaVision and The Falcon and the Winter Soldier had flawed last hours – even Hawkeyewhose conclusion was quite strong, caused whole elements to stumble (see Vincent D’Onofrios Kingpin).
Can the authors behind Moon Knights really deliver a satisfying finish with everything left to tie up? Will Harrow go down as one of the best MCU villains, or will his tale have a random ending; possibly even a temporary stop.
It’s easy to worry about all this. Rightly so given the many loose ends that need to be tied up.
At the end of the day, however, the audience has no idea what their plan is yet – those 42 minutes could easily end the series perfectly. Fans simply do not know until next week, when everything is revealed.
