Moon Knight Costume Designer Reveals The Costume’s Hidden Easter Eggs
Moon Knight’s costume designer explains what the hieroglyphs on different costumes spell out and reveals that the show is full of other Easter eggs.
The fans know Moon Knight are aware of the character’s abilities and that he acts as the avatar of Khonshu, the Egyptian moon god. Because of this, Marc Spector has to summon the suit, but it was revealed early in the series that there are actually multiple versions of it. While Moon Knight dons a large hood and cape, the second costume, Mr. Knight’s, involves an all-white three-piece suit. The reasoning behind the different costumes in Moon Knight is that they separate Marc’s identities, so Mr. Knight’s suit signifies a distinct Quirk for Steven Grant when he’s in command. In addition to the two costumes, some fans have also noticed the hieroglyphs on them, and it looks like they serve more than stylistic choices.
Now Kasperlik has explained to comics that these hieroglyphs on both versions of the combination spell sentences. She shares that the crest seen on Moon Knight’s chest displays Khonshu’s Oath. She also says that there are many other Easter Eggs placed throughout the series and encourages the audience to try and collect them. Read Kasperlik’s quote regarding the specific hieroglyphs on both suits below:
“‘Arise and live again as my fist of vengeance. My Moon Knight,’ It’s in the hieroglyph of the pants. On Mr. Knight, the easter egg is that the buttons on the vest are custom buttons which are the symbol of Khonshu. I had an in-house blacksmith that made all of this.“
Jeremy Slater also discussed Moon Knight’s costume, revealing that he knew early on that it had to be supernatural, as opposed to something tangible that Marc wears under his clothes. He also said that after reviewing a large amount of comics, he found the X Universe design and felt that something reminiscent of a mummy’s wrapper would stand out among all the other costumes present in the MCU. The end result, as he said, was one of the most distinct costumes Marvel has incorporated into any of their projects.
Like Moon Knight awaits its final two episodes, it will be interesting to see if any further changes are made to the character’s costume, especially with the common belief that Jake Lockley, a third identity, will be revealed. There’s also the idea that Layla (May Calamawy) could become Khonshu’s next avatar, and what her costume would look like is also worth considering. Fans of the series can expect to learn more and notice other Easter Eggs like Moon Knight keep on going.
