Marvel’s favourite character, Marvel’s Moon Knight Season 1, is dropping on Disney+ soon. Moon Knight aka Marc Spector is the brainchild of Doug Moench, who first appeared in the 1975 comic Werewolf by Night. As the talk of the season is in the air, here we brought all the updates on Marvel’s upcoming hero.

Release Date

Unfortunately, no release date is announced yet. The series production has to begin in November 2020, but with the ongoing pandemic, the release date might shift as the filming will not start this year.

So, we do not expect the Marvel series to drop before 2022. Thus, fans have to wait till next year to get an inside glimpse of the series.

Cast

No actors are confirmed yet by the makers, so we do not know who will join the MCU’s live-action series. There are speculations that Keanu Reeves or Daniel Radcliffe will play the lead, but then again that theory goes in vain.

According to the Marvel fandom site, Ross Marquand can play Marc Spector.

And we bet cast who will appear are Kate Valdez as Wave, David Morrissey, Philip Brooks, and Giancarlo Esposito.

Marvel’s Moon Knight Season 1 Plot

The Moon Knight series will revolve around Mark Spector. He is an ex-CIA agent who was saved by Khonshu, the Moon God.

Mark becomes a superhero and known as Moon Knight after killing a terrorist, the Bushman. No official synopsis released yet, but we expect season 1 to explore the life and origin of Moon Knight.

Marvel’s Moon Knight Season 1 Trailer

There is no teaser, or trailer is out by makes. As the production of the film is still in the dark, we do not expect to see the first glimpse of Moon Knight any time soon.

Stay tuned with us, to get more updates on your favourite shows.

‘13th’ on Netflix and ‘Just Mercy’ on VOD is An Easy Double Feature For a Beginner’s Course on Systemic Racism

Not everyone is in a position to protest in person or donate large sums of money, but one thing we can all do to support the Black Lives Matter movement—which has reignited following the killing of George Floyd—is educate ourselves on the history of racism within the justice system. Luckily, movies like 13th and Just Mercy have made it super to start your journey. These two films—the former of which is streaming on Netflix and the latter of which is free to rent this week—are a powerful crash course in systemic racism. It’s an educational double feature connected not just by their subject matter, but by activist Bryan Stevenson, founder/executive director of the Equal Justice Initiative, and a name you should know if you don’t already.

13th, from director Ava DuVernay, is a 2016 Netflix original documentary that will expertly walk you through how slavery—supposedly abolished by the 13th Amendment to the Constitution—has been carried on in the U.S. through the prison system. There is, astoundingly, a loophole in the text of that amendment: Slavery is illegal now, it says, “except for punishment as a crime.” And so the number of prisoners in the U.S. exploded. As we hear Barack Obama say at the beginning of the film, “the US had 5 percent of the world’s population but 25 percent of the world’s prisoners.”

13th features many activists, politicians, and public figures, and that includes Bryan Stevenson, the central figure of the 2019 legal drama, Just Mercy. In Just Mercy—which is directed by Destin Daniel Cretton and based on Stevenson’s own 2014 memoir—the activist is portrayed in his early years, by Michael B. Jordan. He’s fresh out of Harvard law school and eager to help people accused of crimes who can’t afford representation. He meets Walter “Johnny D.” McMillian (Jamie Foxx), an African-American man wrongly accused of, and sentenced to death for, murdering a white woman. It was the first big case in Stevenson’s long career in criminal justice activism, but certainly not the last. He went on to found the Equal Justice Initiative, a non-profit that provides lawyers to prisoners who may have been wrongly convicted of crimes or not given a fair trial. If you watch 13th on Netflix, you will know that’s a lot of people, and you will also know that a disproportionate number of those people are black.

While Just Mercy shows Stevenson as a young, fresh-face lawyer who looks like Michael B. Jordan (no complaints here), 13th will introduce you to the real deal in the present day. Now 60, Stevenson is still fighting to correct the racist justice system and doing his best to educate Americans on its shameful history. “We make them their crimes,” Stevenson says in the documentary, referring to the disproportionate number of black people behind bars, including those who were falsely accused. “That’s how we introduced them. ‘That’s a rapist, that’s a murderer, that’s a robber, that’s a sex offender, that’s a gang leader.’ And through that lens, it becomes so much easier to accept that they’re guilty and that they should go to prison.”

The story of Stevenson’s fight against systemic racism, both past and present, is a crucial chapter of this national conversation, and Netflix and Warner Bros. have made it all too easy for all of us to brush up on the subject. And once you’ve begun educating yourself, be sure to take the crucial next step: Passing on what you’ve learned to others. That’s how change is born.

Westworld actor Vincent Cassel on why Serac isn’t just a villain

Westworld season 3 spoilers ahead

Vincent Cassel has weighed in on his villainous character Serac from Westworld season 3.

An intricate and smooth yet troubled operator, Serac has emerged as the HBO sci-fi’s latest Big Bad, but in conversation with Digital Spy recently, the actor argued why it’s not so black and white.

Referencing how actors “always end up trying to find out the shades of grey” within their characters, Cassel explained: “You never play a real hero. You never play a real bad guy. You always play somebody stuck in a situation.

“And I guess with him in particular, you know, you try to understand the tyrant.”

He went on: “There is an explanation, and sometimes when people suffer they really try to recreate or to change the course of things by doing crazy stuff.

“And I guess that’s what’s happening with Serac. I don’t judge Serac.”

During the latest season, viewers have discovered that Serac’s brother was killed a while back, and Cassel went on to explain how this affected him in the long term.

“That’s the trauma,” he added. “It’s this thing, the brother and the whole character, and the whole excuse the character relies on is that really.

“[His] suffering, the fact that he sacrificed somebody so important to him that, you know, he knows what suffering is about. So, if people suffer for these ideas, it’s the price to pay.”

Westworld airs on Sky Atlantic and NOW TV. Catch up on the entire series now on demand.

OK, so Elly Conway is wrongly in prison for the death of Finn Kelly, and her daughter Aster is in the custody of grandmother Claudia Watkins, which is the last place she wants her to be.

Elly has been doing some digging to try to get custody rights given to the Kennedys instead, and when Claudia finds out, she decides to scarper with Aster in tow.

As she arrives to the airport in an effort to flee the country, she sees none other than her own son, Shaun!

Shaun (Brad Moller) was declared dead after a trip to Switzerland went horribly wrong, although fans weren’t convinced he had really kicked the bucket.
