Kevin Feige was among the guests of honor at the Moon Knight premiere, and the Marvel boss was thrilled for fans to meet the characters.

p>The cast and crew of Moon Knight walked the red carpet at the series’ premiere in Los Angeles on Tuesday night. Joining the team was Marvel Studios boss Kevin Feige, who expressed his excitement over the series upcoming release on Disney Plus. But, what has stuck with fans is Feige's revelation as to why he is so thrilled about the character coming to life in this adaptation.

Moon Knight will see Oscar Isaac step into the shoes of Steven Grant, “a mild-mannered gift-shop employee,” who soon discovers that he has a disorder and is living with an alter ego of mercenary Marc Spector. As it turns out, Feige has been wanting to work on Moon Knight content for a long time, and he is pleased that Marvel Studios was finally able to transform it into a six-episode miniseries.
