Here are some of the early reactions to “Moon Knight”:
I’ve watched the first 4 episodes of #Marvel #MoonKnight & it’s unlike anything we’ve seen in the #MCU – Oscar Issac is Fantastic! I can’t wait to watch the rest of the series. This isn’t your typical superhero origin. It’s Excellent! It arrives on #Disneyplus on March 30th pic.twitter.com/BPUUmr4cPd

My #MoonKnight Reaction (Part 1 of 10)
The series feels completely different to anything the MCU has ever done before. I’ll get more into it in the review but, in the four episodes I watched, I think I only found one single reference to the MCU at large. pic.twitter.com/8OnPYtxjFq

Folks, it gives me great pleasure to say that #MoonKnight is the greatest TV series of all-time.

I’ve watched the first 4 #MoonKnight eps and I’m as divided by this show as Marc himself. When it works, it’s a wildly original MCU entry with flashes of greatness, but some of the sillier aspects detract from the horror. Diehard comic fans might not enjoy it as much as newcomers pic.twitter.com/ZWitn1rpn2

#MoonKnight is fantastic & Oscar Isaac is exceptional as the tormented Marc Spector. This is the #Marvel show everyone is going to be talking about. Completely bonkers that leads with a haunting adventure. #MarvelStudios has knocked it out of the park with it’s best show yet.

I’ve watched the first 4 episodes of #MoonKnight, it’s unlike anything we’ve seen before from the MCU. It’s a psychological thriller with a touch of Indiana Jones, it kept me on the edge of my seat the whole time. And Oscar Isaac delivers a mesmerizing performance. pic.twitter.com/OWYaWeye41

#MoonKnight is a brilliantly bonkers dark globe-trotting adventure; this is Marvel’s trippy National Treasure. Oscar Isaac is the best addition to the MCU since RDJ, entwining torment and humour into a morally ambiguous cypher – Marc Spector is a whole new calibre of hero. pic.twitter.com/nlL9QgtbyA
