Marvel Studios’ Moon Knight The series featured some interesting changes from the source material, including the inclusion of Mr. Knight. Originally Mr. Knight was a separate alternate personality to Marc Spector, but in the show they do something very different. Marc Spector and Steven Grant wear different versions of the Moon Knight costume and along with Marc Spector in the original, Steven Grant ended up with the Mr. Knight costume. The show’s costume was near perfect, but as with all superhero costumes, there were alternate versions that could have been.
The Marvel Studios concept artist who goes by @Jehuytysan revealed some very different looks for Mr. Knight’s costume on Twitter. I follow the tweet where the artist revealed the concept art of 2020. “Some of my early explorations of Mr. Knight’s costumes of 2020 with costume designer Julian Day. In the end, Mike Uwandi bodied the design via #MoonKnight” You can check out the fan art below!

As it turns out, those weren’t the only two costumes the show wanted to introduce from the start. In fact, virtually every look for the character over the years has been “on the board” at one time or another, according to series producer Grant Curtis.
“As you can imagine at the start of the series, every costume is on the board, and there have been some amazing costumes throughout the year, with these amazing performers going all the way back to 1975,” Curtis tells us. “We came to a particular place with the Moon Knight costume, and we thought we were in the right place. And then Oscar [Isaac] boarded and he started asking the character about the Moon Knight costume. It’s like, ‘Would his character do that? Or what about that part of his journey?'”
Marvel Studios and Disney+ describe the series as: “Moon Knight follows mild-mannered gift shop clerk Steven Grant, who is plagued by power outages 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 on them, they must navigate their complex identities while being immersed in a deadly mystery among mighty Egyptian gods.” All episodes of Marvel Studios’ Moon Knight are available now on Disney+.
