The Direct reported that Disney recently shared a press release for its upcoming series Moon Knight, which details Marvel Studios’ lengths to properly depict Marc Spector’s Dissociative Identity Disorder from the comics. Executive producer on Moon Knight, Grant Curtis, points out how “[Moon Knight] never let his own mental illness define him” and that Spector never let “societies’ labels” define the people around him either:
“The beautiful thing about Moon Knight’s adventures was he was always inclusive. He never let his own mental illness define him. And therefore, he never let societies’ labels that were placed on others define the people that he brought on his adventures with him.”
Oscar Isaac, who stars as Marc Spector/Moon Knight, focused on the “intense childhood trauma” in the series and how that trauma manifests into adulthood:
“I think it was just about being honest to what Dissociative Identity Disorder is, and honest to what a lot of people have to deal with, which is really intense childhood trauma and how that manifests as an adult. I think for us it was about authenticity, more than even story communication.”
Moon Knight premieres on Disney+ on March 30, 2022.
