Placing its action in Egypt, and in particular in the desert, the teams of Moon Knight had to find an equivalent in another country to shoot the outdoor scenes. They decided to put their cameras in the desert of Wadi Rum in Jordan.
This beautiful valley with its ochre tones was used for the outdoor scenes of the tomb, as well as for all the scenes where Marc (Oscar Isaac) and Layla (May Calamawy) follow the map leading to Âmmit.
Wadi Rum is a desert used to Hollywood since several films have already been shot there, including Dune by Denis Villeneuve, where Oscar Isaac played Leto Atreides, the lord of the House of his name.
In the universe of Moon Knightuniverse, the tomb of Âmmit is located at 29°N, 25°E, which is the border between Libya and Egypt.
