Moon Knight Writer Wanted a Chris Evans/Captain America Cameo

Moon Knight head writer Jeremy Slater reveals that Chris Evans’ Captain America almost made a cameo appearance in the Disney+ Marvel series.

Moon Knight head writer Jeremy Slater has revealed which Marvel Cinematic Universe characters almost appeared in the Disney+ series.

In an interview with DiscussingFilm, Slater disclosed that although Moon Knight didn’t feature any cameos from previously introduced MCU characters, there were talks about incorporating several notable superheroes. “There were definitely different times in the writing process where we talked about cameos because cameos are one of the most fun things to discuss in a writer’s room,” the writer explained. “What happens if we try to get Chris Evans back as old Captain America? You know, you sit there and play that ‘what if’ game among your writers.” The “old Captain America” Slater is referring to is the elderly version of Avengers: Endgame‘s Steve Rogers, who remained in the past with Peggy Carter after returning the Infinity Stones. His present-day whereabouts in the MCU remain unknown at this time.

The writer added that the only cameos that were seriously discussed were Dane Whitman and Kingo and Makkari from 2021’s Eternals. Slater explained that Dane Whitman almost made it into Moon Knight “because at the time Steven Grant was going to be working at the same museum. But there was never any logical reason for him to be in the show.” He didn’t want to include Whitman unless the show could progress the character’s arc as Black Knight. As for the Eternals, Moon Knight was “originally planning to show the original fall of Ammit and the death of Alexander the Great in a flashback sequence, and that seemed like it could naturally dovetail with an appearance from the Eternals,” explained Slater.

Moon Knight premiered in March and introduced Oscar Isaac’s titular superhero into the MCU. While Marvel Studios has not yet renewed the series for a second season, Isaac has confirmed that he would be interested in reprising the role in other MCU projects. Slater has also stated that Moon Knight’s story is far from finished, especially after the Season 1 finale officially introduced viewers to Jake Lockley, one of Marc Spector’s alternate personalities. “Whoever gets to tell the next Moon Knight story, whether that’s me or someone else, that is an exciting promise,” said Slater on Lockley’s unknown motives and inevitable return. “This guy’s story is definitely not done.”
