Avengers: Infinity War delivered a significant event that caused massive ramifications across the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The aforementioned phenomenon was Thanos' Snap, otherwise known as the Blip, where half of the universe's population is turned into dust. While the fate of most MCU heroes has already been revealed during that movie and Avengers: Endgame, the same isn't true for newer characters like Shang-Chi and Yelena Belova in Phase 4. 

However, these characters' fates are slowly being unveiled. Hawkeye revealed that Yelena was one of Thanos' victims during Infinity War while Hailee Steinfeld confirmed that Kate Bishop survived the events of the 2018 MCU blockbuster. 

Eternals confirmed that every member of the team survived the Snap, mainly because they are not living beings. WandaVision also unveiled that Monica Rambeau didn't survive Thanos' Decimation as she came back to life in a flashback moment.

Now, as the MCU's next chapter moves forward, another character's Infinity War fate has been revealed.

Marc Spector Survived Thanos' Snap

Warning: the rest of this article contains spoilers for Moon Knight's second episode. 

During the latest episode, Steven Grant tracks down the identity of his other personality. The protagonist's detective work leads him to Marc Spector's storage locker downtown, which held his belongings and a bunch of illegal things.

As he looked around the locker and rummaged through Marc Spector's duffel bag, Grant came across Spector's passport.

In a blink-and-you'll-miss-it moment, fans can see that the document was issued on December 14, 2018.

Thanos' Snap during the events of Avengers: Infinity War occurred in mid to late 2018 on the Marvel Cinematic Universe timeline, indicating that Spector obtained his passport at the very end of 2018 in the months following his survival of the Blip.

Moon Knight's MCU Connections Slowly Being Revealed

While it's possible that the details on Marc Spector's passport are fake, there's a good chance that they're real, since it could've been issued before the former vigilante's time as Moon Knight. In addition, the episode also proved that the passport is legit since the two FBI agents managed to track down Spector's past using the details from the document. 

Based on this information, it's possible that Spector's mission in Egypt happened sometime after he obtained his passport or it could've occurred as soon as Christmas in 2018. If this is the case, it appears that Khonshu revived Spector in either 2018 or 2019, meaning that he transformed into Moon Knight during the five-year gap between Infinity War and Endgame

This revelation indicates that Spector has been operating as Moon Knight for at least five years in the MCU timeline, considering the show is set in the year 2025 and after the events of Hawkeye. This aligns with Spector's dialogue in the episode where he tells Steven Grant that he's been doing this "for a long time."

This may also hint that Moon Knight could tackle Spector's first adventures as the fist of vengeance, which could be set in the five-year gap between the two Avengers films. MCU Disney+ shows like WandaVision and Hawkeye already showcased flashbacks during that specific point in time, and the same could be true for Moon Knight as it enters its last four episodes. 

Moon Knight's first two episodes are now streaming on Disney+.
