MOON KNIGHT Previz Video Reveals The Awesome Jackal Battle That Was Cut From The Premiere

A new previs video for Moon Knight has revealed the battle between Marc Spector and the Jackal that we didn't get to see in the episode itself. Find out how it would have played out here...

Moon Knight proved to be a fun ride for fans of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, but if there's one complaint it seemed everybody had, it's that the show didn't feature enough, well, Moon Knight. 

Action scenes were few and far between until the finale, and the premiere somewhat underwhelmed by finally revealing the vigilante in its closing moments after he had already taken down an Egyptian jackal. We heard that fight scene but didn't get to see it, and a previs video has now revealed that Marvel Studios once planned to showcase Moon Knight's fighting abilities here. 

The video was shared by stunt performer Jamel Blissat, and he explains that, "At the beginning, the first appearance of [Moon Knight] in the restroom was supposed to be a real fight against the jackal." It's unclear why this sequence was cut, and we don't know if it was ever shot.

Common sense says Marvel Studios probably felt the sight of Moon Knight beating that jackal and emerging from the restroom made a bigger impact than showing the entire fight scene. 

So, yes, it was a shame we didn't get to see this, but far from the end of the world. As noted, the finale more than made up for any action lacking from previous episodes. Take a look at the video below and let us know your thoughts on the amount of action in Moon Knight down in the comments section.
