Marvel released a trailer for their latest series on Disney+: Moon Knight. Moon Knight will follow Marc Spector, to be played by Oscar Isaac. Spector is an ex-soldier who has a very unique case of dissociative identity disorder, causing him to have difficulty separating his real life from his dreams. As is with comic book lure, this opens him up for psychic connection from the Egyptian moon god Khonshu.
I may not know much about Moon Knight, but seeing Oscar Isaac as the hero (well maybe anti-hero in this case) and Ethan Hawke as the villain, I’m already in. Hawke’s villain appears to be some sort of cult leader who wants Marc to embrace his darkness. By the end of the trailer, we see Marc as Moon Knight beating up someone… or something. I’m looking forward to going into this show without knowing the characters ahead of time. I am curious to hear how fans of Moon Knight feel about the trailer and if they’re as excited as I am.
Marvel is starting to step out of their comfort zone with some of these new properties. I appreciate that this series looks a bit more serious and even has a horror feel to it. Check out the trailer below, and prepare to dive in with us on March 30th, 2022.
