A new trailer for Marvel’s next TV series, Moon Knight, has been released. Additionally, a release date for the series has been confirmed for Disney+: March 30. The first trailer shows actor Oscar Isaac as the vigilante Marc Spector/Moon Knight, and it provides a good look at the new series. We also get a glimpse at Ethan Hawke’s character, who invites Isaac to “embrace the chaos.”
Perhaps the most exciting moment in the trailer is when Isaac is revealed as Moon Knight in full costume. Check it out below. The Moon Knight trailer aired during the NFL playoff game between the Arizona Cardinals and the Los Angeles Rams, which ran on ESPN–Disney owns both ESPN and Marvel.
“The series follows Steven Grant, a mild-mannered gift-shop employee, who becomes plagued with blackouts and memories of another life. Steven discovers he has dissociative identity disorder and shares a body with mercenary Marc Spector. As Steven/Marc’s enemies converge upon them, they must navigate their complex identities while thrust into a deadly mystery among the powerful gods of Egypt,” reads a line from the show’s description.
Hawke plays the villain, and Hawke is said to have based the character in part on David Koresh, according to The Hollywood Reporter. Isaac previously told Total Film about Moon Knight, “We’re making something that’s quite different, and that doesn’tt follow the same… not necessarily even logic of what a lot of superhero films do.”
Moon Knight was directed by Mohamed Diab and the duo Justin Benson & Aaron Moorhead. Umbrella Academy’s Jeremy Slater leads the writing team for Moon Knight.
