Fans have spotted a production error in the most recent episode of Moon Knight on Disney+, capturing screenshots of a crew member for the series standing by with camera in hand.
The appearance of the cameraman on the far right side of the screen takes place at the 8:27 mark in the episode, The Direct reports, during a fast-paced chase scene in which Oscar Isaac as Marc Spector is pursuing some henchmen through an alley. Only the equipment the cameraman is using and one of his hands is visible, but it's clearly an accidental addition.
"The Friendly Type," which aired Wednesday, is the third episode out of six of Moon Knight, the newest series set in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Although Marvel Studios is known for high standards of production and has been observed making retroactive changes to its other shows on Disney+, the occurrence in the Moon Knight episode may be considered too minor to merit a correction.
Moon Knight is based on a Marvel Comics character created by Doug Moench and Don Perlin, which debuted in 1975's Werewolf by Night #32. In the comics, mercenary Marc Spector is given a second chance at life when the Egyptian god Khonshu grants him the opportunity to redeem the deeds of his past. Khonshu makes him the bearer of the god's powers on Earth, or "the Fist of Khonshu," instructing Marc to use his new powers to protect and avenge the innocent.
Disney+ has referred to Moon Knight as a limited series rather than a first season of an ongoing show, so the future of the property is unknown so far. However, the interconnected nature of the MCU means that there will be plenty of opportunity for the characters to return in some capacity.
"[Marvel] keep expressing every day, how much they love the show, but it's not like any other show, meaning on the other show, outside the Marvel universe," director Mohamed Diab recently explained. "Meaning any TV series, if it's good, you know that you're going to get a second season, but one WandaVision was great. And you didn't get a second season, you went to something else. So what I'm absolutely sure of is that Moon Knight is staying, staying for a long time, in my opinion. That's just a prediction."
New episodes of Moon Knight arrive Wednesdays on Disney+.
