An eagle-eyed fan notes that Marvel Studios moon knight Series contains references to two major heroes of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

During the pilot episode of the series, titled “The Goldfish Problem,” Steven Grant (Oscar Isaac) is shown studying Egyptian mythology in his apartment. As he pours over a multitude of tomes, he surrounds himself with stacks of reference books. While many of these appear to be actual history books, two are exclusive to the MCU. One of the titles is What is old is new again: Asgard while the other is History of Wakanda. None of the books contain an author attribution.

Discovery is probably the closest moon knight has so far referred to the larger MCU. Producer Grant Curtis confirmed that for the most part, the show would function as a standalone story not directly connected to other characters in Disney’s ever-expanding cinematic universe. “There is no connection to the current MCU,‘ Curtis said. “He’s brand new and he’s going on a brand new adventure. We really think the fans will enjoy it.”

This separation between moon knight and the rest of the MCU was largely what attracted the show’s stars to the story. “I love – you know when you first see it iron manor when I first saw Black Panther – where I don’t know the origin story, I don’t know all the characters, I’m really being told a new legend,” he said Ethan Hawke, who plays the series’ villain Arthur Harrow. “And I was so happy when we first went talked about it being separated, because it gives us so much more freedom. And as a spectator, that’s what I want, I don’t want to know what’s going to happen.”
