Moon Knight referenced Wolverine‘s favorite location in the MCU in its third installment. This isn’t a random Easter egg.
Marvel Studios is building towards Wolverine’s MCU debut.
Moon Knight piles on.
Now four episodes in and fans can’t get enough of Moon Knight.
Moon Knight Hinted At Wolverine’s MCU Debut
Moon Knight‘s creators established that the series isn’t part of a larger MCU story arc. It doesn’t matter. Moon Knight reels in millions of viewers with its compelling narrative.
After all, it’s what attracted both Oscar Isaac and Ethan Hawke to join the project in the first place. Nonetheless, Moon Knight continues to drop hints of the greater MCU.
Moon Knight previously mentioned Black Panther‘s Wakanda and Thor‘s Asgard. In addition, the show teased the arrival of the Fantastic Four’s Big Bad, Doctor Doom.
Madripoor is a iconic location from Marvel Comics and is notorious for it’s wealth and overall lack of equality.
The nation made its first appearance in The New Mutants No. 32 back in 1985. It’s a safe haven for Marvel’s vast criminal underworld. Furthermore, it’s also mostly associated with several characters from the X-Men.
Most notably everyone’s favorite adamantium-clawed mutant, Wolverine. Wolverine watches over and provides aid to the less fortunate civilians of Madripoor. To Wolverine, Madripoor is like a second home.
In The Falcon and the Winter Soldier, Captain America (Anthony Mackie), Bucky Barnes (Sebastian Stan), and Baron Zemo (Daniel Brühl) travel to the socially-divided nation.
While there, the trio and the audience became well acquainted with the nation’s criminal presence.
They also learned that the mysterious Power Broker Sharon Carter (Emily VanCamp) rules over Madripoor.
With Carter now believed to be a villain, Madripoor will likely play a pivotal role in the MCU’s future.
Just like when Black Widow said in 2012’s The Avengers:
Just like Budapest all over again!
We found out what really happened in Budapest nine years later in 2021’s Black Widow. Well, now we want to see what happened in Madripoor’s past as well as more from it in the future.
