'Moon Knight' Episode 2: Will Kit Harrington's Black Knight make a cameo later in the series?
There have been instances where both Moon Knight and the Black Knight have fought alongside in the comics
Apart from GRC's reference from 'The Falcon and The Winter Soldier' in Episode 2 of 'Moon Knight', there was what eagle-eyed fans would claim to be a nod and a reference to Marvel's 'Eternals'. And if Techradar's theory on a Black Night reference is right, we just might end up seeing Kit Harrington's Dane Whitman in the latest Disney+ series.
'Game of Thrones' star Kit Harington made his MCU debut as the Black Knight in Marvel's 'The Eternals'. His character is a member of the Avengers in the comics and was created by Stan Lee and Joe Maneely in 1955. The origins of the Black Knight date back to Arthurian days (Another movie that dated back to King Arthur's time was 'Transformers: The Last Knight').
Black Knight's tales come with an element of magic and a shade of the supernatural, quite similar to Doctor Strange. Before becoming the sorcerer superhero, Dane Whitman was heir to a legacy that goes back to King Arthur's reign. The first Black Knight, Sir Percy, was chosen by the legendary wizard Merlin and received an enchanted blade forged from a meteorite. Unfortunately, the Ebony Blade, as it was called, received a terrible curse because of all the blood that Percy shed with it. The blade was passed down for generations after his death.
Coming back to Episode 2, Steven Grant (Oscar Isaac) tracks down the building that has Marc Spector's containment unit. And the box is labeled 43. The site suggests that it could be a reference to the comic Moon Knight issue #43 that features the Black Knight. Does this mean there will be an appearance from the 'Eternals' star? There have been instances where both these characters have fought alongside in the comics. Much of this could be labeled as pure speculation, but with Marvel, you never know.
