All of the Marvel Cinematic Universe productions, including both the movies and shows streaming on Disney+, have had pretty consistently good special effects and camera discipline over the years. Usually, the only occasional slip-up comes in the form of a weird green screen bug that doesn’t quite overlay with reality properly. However, the latest episode of the current streaming MCU show, Moon Knight, has shown that the productions still experience the occasional innocent hiccup.
Eagle-eyed Marvel fans watching the latest episode of Marvel’s Moon Knight, which aired this past Wednesday, noted an unusual cameo during a chase scene. Specifically, during a scene in which Marc Spector, played by Oscar Isaac, was chasing down a bad guy through an alleyway, viewers noted what was unmistakably a crew cameraman in the shot. While the cameraman’s face and body aren’t shown, his hands and camera, as well as the camera’s feed screen, are very distinct.

It’s a minor quirk, and nothing to write home about, though some fans have noted that Moon Knight seems to have a slightly lower budget on its special effects than other recent productions. This could be because it is billed as a limited series rather than a seasonal show. It’s still not even known where the Moon Knight characters will slot into the greater scope of the MCU (though the same could be said of many of the MCU’s characters these days), so the production may be comparatively deprioritized.
