Oscar Isaac’s new series Moon Knight is subject to bombing review on IMDb.
After a long wait, the latest Disney Plus original series from Marvel Studios Moon Knight finally had its first episode premiere on Wednesday. While fans are excited to finally see Oscar Isaac’s portrayal as Marc Spector/Steven Grant, some have taken to IMDb to review the series after its premiere.
In the first episode of moon knight, Arthur Harrow (Ethan Hawke) recognizes the Armenian Genocide among a list of tragic events allegedly prevented by the Egyptian goddess Ammit. Given the series’ acknowledgment of the tragedy, some Armenian Genocide deniers have taken it upon themselves to post negative reviews and scores on IMDb:
At this point, both IMDb and Marvel Studios have yet to comment on this unique case of review bombing involving Oscar Isaac’s Moon Knight. At the same time, events like this are not uncommon for TV series and movies, Eternals was subject to review bombing, which some attributed to viewers upset about the inclusion of Phastos in the film as the first gay superhero in the MCU. James Gunn’s The Suicide Squad was also bombarded by Zack Snyder’s hardcore fans who were angry that Warner Bros. Gunn gave full creative control, while Snyder didn’t get that same luxury.
Here’s the synopsis for it Moon Knight:
The series follows Steven Grant, a sweet-natured gift shop employee, who is plagued by blackouts and memories of another life. Steven discovers he has Dissociative Identity Disorder and shares a body with mercenary Marc Spector. As Steven/Marc’s enemies come at them, they must fathom their complex identities as they find themselves in a deadly mystery among the mighty gods of Egypt.
