Is Moon Knight Canon in the MCU?

It’s been confirmed by none other than Marvel big boss Kevin Feige that moon knight will be the canon of the Marvel Cinematic Universe and that they plan for the titular hero to be a part of the big screens in the future where he could be with the other heroes the franchise has already introduced.

Part of the fourth phase of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, moon knight gets along with the other characters who have recently debuted or will just be making their first appearance in the franchise, which means he’s one of the newcomers. MCU Phase Four deals either with the passing of the baton, the aftermath of the events of previous phases, or the introduction of new faces that will shape the future of the franchise.

Oscar Isaac plays moon knight and he would be joined by Ethan Hawke as Arthur Harrow, May Calamawy as Layla, Loic Mabanza as Bushman, the late Gaspar Ulliel as Anton Mogart, Lucy Thackeray as Donna, and F. Murray Abraham as Khonshu.
