We're now less than a month before Moon Knight hits our TV screens and there's a lot of anticipation for the series as it will be the introduction of Oscar Isaac as the titular hero in the MCU. Just like any other Marvel project, most of the plot details are still under wraps for now and there have been several rumors and speculations about what might happen in the series. Now, a new one has emerged which suggests that we might see an appearance of a beloved Avenger.
Per CBR, during a recent episode of TheDisInsider Show podcast, hosts Skyler Shuler and Derek Cornell reported that they've heard that Mark Ruffalo's Hulk will be making an appearance in Moon Knight. They didn't provide any more information regarding how the character will be appearing in the series, but they did joke that he will be acting like the MCU's new Nick Fury.
We do have to take note that this hasn't been confirmed by Marvel yet so we have to take it with a grain of salt for now. Assuming that it is true, it is surprising to hear that the Hulk might be making an appearance in the series since none of the trailers have suggested that they are going to connect to the Avengers or there's a way for an Avenger to show up that would be integral to the story.
Of course, any MCU films or TV shows are always prone to surprise cameos so we shouldn't count out the possibility of the Hulk's appearance. But even in a series like Moon Knight, he would be the least character that you would expect to appear since he is not associated with the supernatural side of the MCU. It is more likely that characters like Blade, Werewolf by Night, or Agatha Harkness are the ones who we might see pop up in the series.
The question now is if Hulk does show up at some point in Moon Knight, what will be his purpose? The safest guess is that he will only show up for a cameo or appear in the post-credits scene of the finale in the vein of how he popped up in the mid-credits scene of Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings. Right now, we won't find out the real answer to this rumor until we finally watch all episodes of the series.
Moon Knight is set to be released this March 30 on Disney+.
