Oscar Isaac’s new series Moon Knight is subject to review bombing on IMDb.
After much anticipation, Marvel Studios’ newest original Disney Plus series Moon Knight finally had its first episode premiere on Wednesday. While fans are quite excited to finally see Oscar Isaac’s portrayal as Marc Spector/Steven Grant, some have gone on to IMDb to review bomb the series after its premiere.
In the first episode of Moon Knight, Arthur Harrow (Ethan Hawke) acknowledges the Armenian Genocide amongst a list of tragic occurrences that the Egyptian goddess Ammit would’ve prevented from happening. Given the series’ acknowledgement of the tragedy, some Armenian Genocide deniers have taken it upon themselves to post negative reviews and scores on IMDb:
At this time, both IMDb and Marvel Studios have yet to respond to this unique case of review bombing regarding Oscar Isaac’s Moon Knight. At the same time, occurrences like this are not uncommon for TV series and films, Eternals was subject to review-bombing, which some attributed to viewers upset over the film’s inclusion of Phastos as the first gay superhero in the MCU. James Gunn’s The Suicide Squad was also review-bombed, by hardcore fans of Zack Snyder that were upset with Warner Bros. giving Gunn full creative control, whereas Snyder wasn’t granted that same luxury.
Here is the synopsis for Moon Knight:
The series follows Steven Grant, a mild-mannered gift-shop employee, who becomes plagued with blackouts and memories of another life. Steven discovers he has dissociative identity disorder and shares a body with mercenary Marc Spector. As Steven/Marc’s enemies converge upon them, they must navigate their complex identities while thrust into a deadly mystery among the powerful gods of Egypt.
Starring Oscar Isaac, May Calamawy, Karim El Hakim, F. Murray Abraham, and Ethan Hawke the first episode of the new MCU series is now available to stream on Disney Plus, with new episodes dropping every Wednesday.
