Moon Knight was an amazing series for Marvel Studios and has been much praised by fans and critics alike. The MCU keeps growing, especially on Disney+. The Disney+ shows have given plenty of depth to existing characters while introducing plenty of new ones with a lot more screen time to study the characters. However, Moon Knight was the first show to focus exclusively on new characters. It did not have any previous MCU characters appear.

Moon Knight follows mercenary Marc Spector and his alter Steven Grant on a quest to stop Arthur Harrow. Oscar Isaac plays both Marc and Steven. While Ethan Hawke portrays Harrow. Both Hawke and Isaac give some of the best performances in the MCU. There are so many great scenes in the show that demonsrate their acting abilities. However, it sounds like the best scene was removed from the show.

During an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Director Mohamed Diab discussed his favorite scene from the show. Diab calls the scene “Oscar-Worthy”. The scene features Marc and Steven confronting their mother. Unfortunately, the scene was cut from the show. You can see his full quote below:

The irony is that my favorite scene of his got cut. It was in episode six. As great as everything else was, he actually topped it with something even better. He confronted his mom in a white void, and he was going back and forth between Marc and Steven. And oh my god. That scene by itself is an Oscar-worthy performance. Hopefully, Marvel releases that scene one day because Oscar was a genius.

It is a shame to hear that such a great scene got cut from the show. Without a doubt, Oscar Isaac gave one of the best performances in the MCU and of his career in Moon Knight. Obviously, it would have been great to see this scene play out in the episode. However, it is important to remember that scenes usually have good reason to be cute. In reality, this scene may be great by itself but maybe it messed up the flow of the episode. But, hopefully one day we get to see the scene because it really does sound great.
