Moon Knight is now a hit Disney+ show with a big budget and a big star, but before it went into the mainstream spotlight, Moon Knight was mostly known thanks to a few edited comic panels that went viral and became memes. You've probably seen the one where he says, "I know you're here, Dracula, you big fucking nerd. Where's my goddamn money?"
That isn't real. Shocker. But there's also the one where Moon Knight is throwing out weapons while saying, "Random bullshit go!" Also not real, but funny nonetheless. And so to celebrate Moon Knight's new show, Hot Toys has tapped into this meme legacy.
The new Hot Toy reveal shows Moon Knight flailing his arms in the air while throwing moon-like batarangs. It's the same pose as the meme. Sure, you don't have the funny caption, but you can almost hear it. It's on the tip of Knight's tongue. Now, all we need is him walking down some stairs in the dark, muttering that Dracula is a big fucking nerd. Where's my goddamn meme figure?
Moon Knight is available right now on Disney+ and, so far, there are two episodes out. They release every Wednesday and give us a glimpse into Oscar Isaac's character descending into vigilantism with multiple personalities vying for control as they unearth a conspiracy they have to puzzle together.
But there are plenty of comics easter eggs in the show too. Some are even interactive. In each episode so far, there's been a QR code. Naturally, someone decided to scan it to see if it would lead anywhere. Lo and behold, in the first episode, the QR code by the sarcophagus revealed a free Moon Knight comic. The same happened in the second for a different comic.
So if you're enjoying the show and want an easy entry into the books that inspired it, you can get them through the show – handy, eh?
