First trailer for Disney+'s Moon Knight
The series will consist of six episodes.
Disney+ has released the first trailer for its upcoming Marvel series Moon Knight.
The clip suggests a dark, psychologically complex series which stars Oscar Isaac as Steven Grant, a gift shop employee who begins to think he’s losing his mind after experiencing blackouts and strange memories of someone else’s life.
“Steven discovers he has dissociative identity disorder and shares a body with mercenary Marc Spector,” reads the official plot synopsis.
“As Steven/Marc’s enemies converge upon them, they must navigate their complex identities while thrust into a deadly mystery among the powerful gods of Egypt.”
This trailer also gives fans a look at Moon Knight’s villain, a dangerous cult leader named Arthur Harrow (Ethan Hawke).
Moon Knight’s powers, which generally include super-strength and prowess in martial arts, are tied into the cycles of the moon becoming significantly stronger when it’s full.
Moon Knight was developed and written by Doug Moench, who originally co-created the character with artist Don Perlin in the 1970s, and directed by Mohamed Diab.
The first episode of Moon Knight will premiere on Disney+ on 30th March 2022.
