The third episode of Marvel’s latest Disney Plus series, Moon Knight, saw Oscar Isaac’s Marc Spector traveling to Egypt, where he may have caught a sign of a Kang the Conqueror variant.
Episode 3 saw Marc Spector in a race to locate Ammit’s tomb before Arthur Harrow could. Marc chases down a gang of Harrow’s henchmen, with all but one ending up murdered by Marc’s as-yet unrevealed third alter, heavily rumored to be Jake Lockley. The surviving thug is wearing a denim jacket with an image of a pharaoh’s head on the back. The headdress shown in the image appears to take inspiration from Pharaoh Rama-Tut, one of Kang’s many identities from the Marvel comics, and crew members on Moon Knight have reportedly confirmed this was an intentional reference.
New Rockstars highlighted the Easter egg in a recent video, pointing out that the shape and colors used in the design seemed to be a clear nod to Rama-Tut. They went on to confirm that they had been in touch with the crew on Moon Knight, who had confirmed this was an intential Rama-Tut Easter egg and not just a coincidence. Check out the video below:
If Kang’s Egyptian identity is going to have a role in Moon Knight and his iconography is being worn by followers of Ammit, then this Easter egg also lends credence to the theory that Rama-Tut was the first avatar of Ammit, who Arthur Harrow said betrayed her.
In the comics, Pharaoh Rama-Tut was one of many identities adopted by the time-traveling Kang the Conqueror – one he used to seize power over Ancienty Egypt. In the MCU, Kang is played by Jonathan Majors, who appeared as one variant of the character – He Who Remains – in Season 1 of Loki.
Here is the synopsis for Moon Knight:
