Moon Knight, only one of the numerous projects that Marvel Studios is developing at Disney, is closer than ever. Another show set in Marvel Cinematic Universe, starring Oscar Isaac.
Get a first look at Moon Knight, a new globetrotting action-adventure series featuring a complex vigilante who suffers from dissociative identity disorder. The multiple identities who live inside him find themselves thrust into a deadly war of the gods against the backdrop of modern and ancient Egypt. Moon Knight is directed by executive producer Mohamed Diab; Jeremy Slater is head writer. The series is coming to Disney+ in 2022.
Moon Knight was announced at D23 Expo back in August 2019. Oscar Isaac was officially cast in a titular role earlier this year. Isaac plays Marc Spector, a former CIA agent whose life is saved by the Moon God, Khonshu. That’s the origin story of Moon Knight told in one sentence. Check the first look images down below:
A fictional character Marc Spector aka Moon Knight was created by Doug Moench and Don Perlin. The character debuted in the comics in 1975 in Werewolf by Night #32. Marc Spector is a former Marine and CIA operative who became a mercenary with mixed feelings about morality and violence. Moon Knight is an expert detective, very skilled in martial arts and he uses high-tech equipment, which is why he’s often compared to DC’s Batman. One key difference is that Moon Knight actually has superpowers such as increased strength, speed, and endurance which depend on the lunar cycle, which explains the name of this superhero.
Created by Jeremy Slater, and starring Oscar Isaac, Gaspard Ulliel, May Calamawy, Loic Mabanza, and Ethan Hawke in the undisclosed villainous role, Moon Knight will debut exclusively on Disney+ in Summer 2022.
