With filming on Marvel Studios’ highly anticipated Moon Knight series currently underway, a new character is now rumored to appear in the show. According to Insider Daniel Richtman, Osiris will be in the show.
Created by Roy Thomas, Bill Mantlo, and Sal Buscema, Marvel’s Osiris debuted in 1975’s Thor #239. A member of the Heliopolitan race of gods in ancient Egypt, Osiris was the oldest son on Geb and Nut, the god of earth and the goddess of the heavens. Osiris succeeded his father as ruler and placed a mortal pharaoh in charge of Egypt so that the gods could relocate to Celestial Heliopolis.
Given Moon Knights’ connection to Khonshu, the Egyptian moon god, it makes sense for other gods to appear in the series. While Osiris has not played a pivotal role in previous Moon Knight runs, it could make sense to use this series to introduce the Egyptian gods to the MCU.
Jeremy Slater, known for his work on Netflix’s Umbrella Academy adaptation, is set to develop and write the Marvel Studios series. Moreover, Mohamed Diab (Clash), Justin Benson, and Aaron Moorhead (The Endless) will direct various episodes of Moon Knight as well.
