The first trailer for “Rebel Moon” is action-packed, filled with rich imagery, and doused in mystery. As audiences finish watching the trailer, they’ll likely find themselves asking a complicated question: “Who is the Scargiver?” While the first “Rebel Moon,” which debuts in December 2023, has the subtitle “Child of Fire,” the second part is called “The Scargiver.” Snyder clearly has big plans for whoever the Scargiver is, setting up the character with the first trailer.
In the trailer, Ed Skrein’s Admiral Atticus Noble, who is one of the film’s main baddies, says, “I found her. The Scargiver.” We then cut to a shot of Sofia Boutella’s Kora slashing enemies up with a weapon, implying that she is the Scargiver. Seeing as Kora is the main protagonist in “Rebel Moon,” it stands to reason that she is the titular Scargiver. The real question is if the Scargiver is a mythological title that exists in the world of “Rebel Moon” or if the moniker is simply one that Kora — or her enemies — created.
Considering the mythological tone of the “Rebel Moon” trailer, it would make sense that the Scargiver is a title that is earned. The trailer kicks off with Jimmy discussing how the world foretold the emergence of the Redeemer, an individual who would stop the “madness of war.” Seeing as the world is engulfed in chaos, it’s likely that The Redeemer failed in their mission. Is it possible that the Scargiver, aka Kora, will be the world’s savior? With the first part titled “Child of Fire,” it could be that the “Rebel Moon” subtitles hints at Kora’s growth as a character, and how the rebellion views her as a leader.
