Moon Knight Trailer Out, Here’s What Should Know About Marvel’s New Superhero

Marvel Studios has released the first trailer for its Disney Plus series ‘Moon Knight,’ which stars Oscar Isaac as a new superhero. The teaser was released on Monday night/Tuesday morning, formally kicking off the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s 2022 schedule.

In ‘Moon Knight’ premiering on March 30, Isaac plays Marc Spector, a former soldier with a profound case of dissociative identity disorder that manifests as fully distinct individuals. He becomes the conduit for the Egyptian moon god Khonshu, which only further exacerbates Marc’s anxiety over his mental illness.

In the trailer, set to Kid Cudi’s ‘Day an’ Night’, Marc can’t tell the difference between his normal life and his dreams. He plays with a Rubik’s cube, unable to fall asleep, only to jump out of bed in a panic with his foot chained to his bed, though he seemingly forgets he was the one who restrained himself the night before. After visiting a museum on ancient Egypt, he sees a vision of Khonshu and later meets Ethan Hawke’s villain, a cult leader who encourages Marc to embrace the darkness within himself.

The trailer ends with Marc being enveloped by the Moon Knight costume and a shot of him brutally beating someone up on a bathroom floor. Unlike all of Marvel Studios’ previous series for Disney Plus, which were based on existing characters from the company’s pre-2019 feature films, ‘Moon Knight’ charts a brand new path, with a totally new set of characters and a storyline that has no clear initial connection to the MCU.

‘Moon Knight’ co-stars Hawke and May Calamawy, while Jeremy Slater serves as creator and head writer, with Mohamed Diab and the team of Justin Benson and Aaron Moorhead directing.

The show inaugurates Marvel Studios’ second year delivering TV series for Disney Plus alongside its feature films. Also expected in 2022 for the streamer: ‘She-Hulk’, a legal comedy starring Tatiana Maslany, Mark Ruffalo, Tim Roth, Renee Elise Goldsberry, Josh Segarra and Jameela Jamil; ‘Ms. Marvel’, a coming-of-age dramedy starring newcomer Iman Vellani in the title role; and Season 2 of the animated series ‘What If?’.
