Marc Spector’s wife Layla has not been seen on screen since Arthur Harrow shot Marc in Alexander the Great's tomb. But fans of "Moon Knight" hoping to catch more of Layla in the series finale may be surprised to learn that she was not originally written to be Marc and Steven's love interest in the series at all.
In a recent podcast interview, "Moon Knight" creator, writer, and executive producer Jeremy Slater said there were a number of differences between the original pitch for the series and what made it on-screen. The showrunners had originally considered making Maya Lopez, aka Echo the love interest for Marc and Steven rather than Layla.
Slater said, "At the time, Echo was going to be our love interest, solely based on the fact that they knew Marvel liked the character of Echo and was trying to find a show to put her in." However, he said that he was relieved when Marvel Studios decided to insert the character into the 2021 miniseries "Hawkeye" instead because Echo did not fit well within the story "Moon Knight" tells.
