A new first look teaser for Marvel’s Moon Knight was released. Marvel Cinematic Universe’s darkest hero is hungry. Marc Spector (Oscar Isaac) is having trouble telling the difference between his waking life and his dreams, and both seem rather violent. Spector — who seems like he’s speaking in two different voices — looks haunted, with his reflection in a mirror moving independently of him, and appearing confused in the aftermath of a fight he doesn’t seem to know he was in. watch Marvel’s Moon Knight First Teaser below.
Moon Knight’s cast is being kept mainly under wraps, with Isaac, Ramy’s May Calamawy, and Ethan Hawke in secret roles being the only confirmed actors so yet. Hawke is supposedly slated as the series’ main adversary, while rumors and set images suggest that Midnight Man, played by Gaspard Ulliel, will also feature in the series. With so many questions and so much anticipation for Moon Knight, Marvel is finally giving fans their first look at the series.
Created by Doug Moench and Don Perlin, Marc Spector/Moon Knight is a veteran with Dissociative Identity Disorder who becomes the avatar of the Egyptian moon god Khonshu after a near-death experience. He’s kind of like Batman, but because of his condition and supernatural ties, Spector’s mental health is as much of a driving force in his stories as is vigilantism. That the Disney Plus series doesn’t seem to be shying away from this makes it interesting — this isn’t just another Daredevil, it’s potentially a meaty six-episode series about a troubled character that really doesn’t have an equivalent in the MCU yet.
Moon Knight is set to premiere on Disney Plus in 2022.
