When does Moon Knight take place on the Marvel timeline? Good question. The new Disney Plus series, starring Oscar Isaac as Steven Grant/Marc Spector, has been heavy on character detail so far, and a little less concerned with how the show fits into the MCU.

But there is an answer – it’s been hiding in plain sight in one of Moon Knight’s recent teaser trailers and on Disney Plus. Below, we’ll fill you in on all the details, including where Moon Knight fits on the Marvel timeline, and which movies and shows it comes after.

Moon Knight takes place post-Avengers: Endgame, though its exact spot on the timeline was originally a little hazy.

We know it’s post-Blip return, though, thanks to a Moon Knight teaser for an upcoming episode revealing a banner advert for the Global Repatriation Council – the group designed to help those who returned after being ‘dusted’ – on the side of a London bus (H/T Inverse (opens in new tab)).

Disney Plus, though, has the official answer: Moon Knight takes place after Hawkeye in its playlist of Marvel shows and movies in timeline order. That means Moon Knight lands in the MCU in late 2024 or, more than likely, 2025. For reference, here’s what that current slice of Marvel looks like in terms of dates.
