It seems Moon Knight is set to make his debut in the world of Marvel Zombies. If a new rumor is to be believed, he’ll be nothing like fans have seen before.
Details about the upcoming Marvel Zombies series have been kept close to the chest, especially as What If…? has been taking up much of the fansbase’s bandwidth for animated elseworlds. The newest rumor to come from the series from scooper CanWeGetSomeToast suggests that Khonshu will find a new avatar to be Moon Knight that ISN’T Marc Spector or Steven Grant.
Given the series’ confirmed cast, the most likely Moon Knight candidate in Marvel Zombies would be Simu Liu’s Shang-Chi or Randall Park’s Jimmy Woo, given their respective martial arts talents. Though given What If…? is no stranger to creating original characters, it wouldn’t be a shock to see an entirely original character take up the mantle.
A Multiverse of Possibilities
What If…? features the voices of Josh Brolin, Natalie Portman, Samuel L. Jackson, Jeremy Renner, Paul Rudd, Mark Ruffalo, Jeffrey Wright, Hayley Atwell and other major stars from the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The series “flips the script on the MCU, reimagining famous events from the films in unexpected ways,” according to Marvel’s official description of the series.
In addition to the second season of What If…?, Marvel is also working on two more animated series — Marvel Zombies and Spider-Man: Freshman Year. The former is a direct spin-off of What If…? episode five, which revolves around a Marvel Cinematic Universe that suffers from a zombie plague.
All episodes of What If…? season 2 are now available to stream on Disney Plus. Stay tuned for the latest news regarding the future of the Marvel Cinematic Universe and make sure to subscribe to our YouTube channel for more content!
