For the vast majority of Moon Knight’s 45+ years of existence, he has been largely absent from Marvel shows and Movies. He was originally scheduled to appear in Super Hero Squad, but the show was canceled before his appearance actually happened. He also had an arguable appearance in the Avengers Assemble cartoon. He appeared on a computer screen as a potential recruit but did not actually appear in the episode. His first Legitimate appearance in cartoons was in 2016 as a guest in a Christmas episode of Ultimate Spider-man. He has had multiple appearances in different cartoons since. He is slated to have a live action TV show on Disney+ with a unspecified release date sometime in 2022.

Moon Knight Disney + Series

Air Date: TBA 2022

Updated 1-30-2021

During the D23 Summit held during the summer of 2019, Marvel announced that Moon Knight was being developed as a live action TV show for the Disney+ Streaming service. The show would be canon with the established MCU, and relate to the other properties being developed such as Loki, Wandavision, Falcon and the Winter Solider, She Hulk, Blade, and many others. In December of 2020, it was announced that Moon Knight would be an action adventure story similar to Indiana Jones, and that Egyptian Iconography would be prevalent in the show.

It has been rumored that Marvel is in talks with Oscar Issac to star as Marc Spector in the series. This has not been confirmed by Marvel. Two official casting announcements were made in January 2021, however. Ethan Hawke had signed on to play a villain in the series, and May Calamawy has signed on for an unannounced role. Directors Mohamed Diab, Justin Benson and Aaron Moorhead have all been officially attached to the project. The series is currently being written by Jeremy Slater and Beau DeMayo.

Moon Knight's third tv appearance was as a guest on the 2017 Spider-man show airing on Disney XD. This incarnation was voiced by Peter Giles. In the episode, Spider-Man tries to get a retired Marc Spector to help him protect the city from the Symbiot. He spends most of the episode out of costume.

Currently, this episode is not available to purchase anywhere.


Avengers Assemble: Beyond

Air Date: January 14, 2018
Season: 4 "Secret Wars"
Episode: 17

Moon Knight's second tv appearance was as a villain in the long running Avengers Assemble cartoon airing on Disney XD. This incarnation was voiced by Gideon Emery, and pitted Moon Knight against the Avengers on an Egyptian world of the Beyonder's creation. Moon Knight was protecting an orb with the help of various undead Mummies and a rather large Dog creature, who he rode for no particular reason. Moon Knight was silent for most of the episode until Black Widow disrupted the mind control that was forcing Moon Knight's hand. Only then does it become apparent that Moon Knight is not an enemy, but rather a victim in the Beyonder's plan. This version of Moon Knight sports a more traditional outfit, with a black outfit and white cape, similar to Sienkiewicz original art on the first volume. Moon Knight was presented as a capable fighter, holding off various Avengers heavyweights. The fighting was well done, but most of the episode came off rather bland. Moon Knight spent a considerable amount of the episode riding the bizarre creature, who looked almost like an Adult Swim satire. You can purchase this Episode on Amazon.



Comic Book Men

Air Date: April 16, 2017
Season: 6 Episode 15: "The Amazing Walter"
Episode: 55 (3)

Moon Knight made a brief appearance in the hit AMC reality show "Comic Book Men." The show follows the happenings in Kevin Smith's comic shop "Jay and Silent Bob's Secret Stash" located in New Jersey. The show follows various employees as customers come in to buy or sell various comic and pop merchandise. In a recent episode, a customer came in to purchase a copy of Werewolf by Night #32, the first Appearance of Moon Knight. Unfortunately, not much is said about Moon Knight in the episode. The copy sells for only $350.



Ultimate Spider-Man: The Moon Knight Before Christmas

Air Date: December 17, 2016
Season: 4
Episode: 24

Moon Knight's first TV appearance was as a guest star on the long running Ultimate Spider-Man airing on Disney XD. Voiced by Diedrich Bader, this particular incarnation of Moon Knight really focused on his mental instability. Moon Knight was regularly seen conversing out-loud with the moon directly (although we assume it was Khonshu). This lead to Spider-Man reacting uncomfortably, as it was understandably interpreted as lunacy. Despite this inconsistency with his comic book counterpart, who was rarely so open and outspoken about his conversations with Khonshu, other aspects of the character were done quite well in this episode. Moon Knight was sporting his 2014 costume redesign from the Ellis/Shalvey run. It was represented very well in fluid motion. His appearance also demonstrated a certain level of macabre/ethereal elements, suggesting that the character was more than he seemed, at least to Spider-Man. He was also shown as being an great fighter, more focused on brute force and less on elegance or agility. He was introduced initially as an antagonist, attempting to kill a girl that Spider-man was watching. After the plot began to unfold, it became apparent to both of them that they would each be better served as allies. I quite enjoyed this episode, and felt that Bader did a great job with the voice over. I highly recommend this episode most fans, especially as a seasonal viewing. You can purchase this episode on Amazon.


Avengers Assemble

Air Date: September 20, 2015
Season: 2
Episode: 26 Avengers World

Whether or not you consider this Moon Knight's first appearance is totally subjective. In 2015, a brief clip in the 26th episode of Avengers Assemble Season 2 saw an image of Moon Knight on a computer display. The display was showing various heroes that were being considered as potential Avengers Recruits. The image of Moon Knight is static, and he is never mentioned by name. I don't necessarily consider this an appearance, but I felt it was worth including.
