Not at all. Marvel’s Moon Knight isn’t out for another month or so. In the next movie in the fourth phase of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Oscar Isaac plays Marc Spector, a former boxer who has God-like powers from Ancient Egypt. Spector becomes the Moon Knight after he dies and is brought back to life by Marvel Comics, according to what they say. Isaac is joined by Ethan Hawke, who plays Arthur Harrow, the main bad guy in the highly anticipated TV show.
TV Guide has put together a list of everything we know about the new Disney+ show, including who Isaac will be joined by in the first season and how Moon Knight came to be.
The most recent news stories
It was during the Super Bowl LVI that Marvel released new teasers for the show that is going to be on. Many more scenes of Hawke as Arthur Harrow and Marc Spector trying to separate his waking life from his dreaming one are shown in a 30-second video that they put on their site. Another poster from Marvel shows Isaac as the Moon Knight.
Jan. 17 was the date that the official trailer for Moon Knight came out. As one of Marc Spector’s aliases, Oscar Isaac plays Steven Grant. Before he gets a phone call from a woman who says he’s Marc, we meet Oscar Isaac as Steven Grant. “Marc, why did you call me that?” Isaac asks in the video. Ethan Hawke’s Arthur Harrow says to “embrace the chaos” later, just before Marc is encased in the Moon Knight suit. This is what he says. Here is the full video.
Expands on the first look at a character shown in the first footage from the show, which was shown in November 2021 as part of the first Disney+ Day. “I can’t tell the difference between my real life and my dreams.” This is what Spector says in the video. The teaser is part of the Marvel package on Disney+. You can see it at the link in the text below. It starts at the 11:57 mark. At the end, Isaac’s character fights in the street.
The date when the movie will be out.
In March, the show will be out. On March 30, Moon Knight will be on Disney+ for the first time. The season will have six episodes.
Oscar Isaac will be the show’s main character. Aaron Moorhead, the film’s director, announced Isaac’s role in a tweet in early January of 2020. Days later, The Hollywood Reporter broke the news that May Calamawy would be joining Isaac in an unknown role. In May 2021, Disney+ finally said that the news was true.
There’s also news that Ethan Hawke is joining the cast. The trailer shows that he will be playing the main bad guy, and he will be called Arthur Harrow. His first time in the MCU.
Moon Knight: Who is Moon Knight?
In the character’s backstory, it’s fun to read about. Moon Knight was made by Doug Moench and Don Perlin in 1975. He first appeared in Werewolf by Night, which was written by Doug Moench. Since then, he’s worked with the Avengers, the Secret Avengers, and the X-Men, as well as She-Hulk. As long as the MCU doesn’t completely change Moon Knight’s backstory, it will be about Marc Spector, a former boxer who became an officer in the marines and then a mercenary. Afterwards, he gets into trouble with the Egyptian gods. He’s given the chance to make up for it by becoming a god’s avatar on Earth. Khonshu was an ancient Egyptian god of the moon. He calls himself “The Fist of Khonshu,” which means “the hand of Khonshu.” He also has a lot of different identities and is often compared to Batman from DC Comics.
People don’t know what the character can do, but they think he or she has Military training has given him the skills to be a soldier, but when it comes to being a superhero, they’re a little mixed up. He has a high tolerance for pain, and depending on the situation, his many personalities either help or hurt him when he fights other people (it’s thought he has dissociative identity disorder). Also, because he gets his powers from the moon god, his powers are based on lunar cycles.
But at least he’s dressed up in a cool outfit! Wolverine’s claws are made out of adamantium, so parts of his suit are made out of that, too. He also has a huge cape that helps him fall from very high places with style.
Behind the Curtain:
The directing slate looks great. Mohamed Diab, a filmmaker from Egypt, has been chosen to direct Moon Knight, according to Deadline, which is a news site. They will also be directing “several episodes,” THR says.
He made the show. The Hollywood Reporter said that Slater will be in charge of the writing team for the new show. TV show The Umbrella Academy is being made by Slater. The Fantastic Four, which came out in 2015, was also written by him and other people.
In the past, Marvel has tried to make a movie or TV show about Moon Knight for a long time. Before the MCU was even a thing, Marvel talked about making a TV show about Moon Knight. However, that didn’t happen. That’s when James Gunn said he once tried to make a film called Moon Knight, but it didn’t happen.
How to Watch TV
