The identity of Ethan Hawke’s Marvel character in Moon Knight has been revealed.

Last night, the first official trailer for Marvel Studios’ newest Disney Plus series Moon Knight was released, giving fans a new glimpse at Oscar Isaac’s titular superhero as well as Ethan Hawke’s character. Now, we know the identity of Ethan Hawke‘s role, and he will be playing none other than Arthur Harrow.

Ethan Hawke‘s Arthur Harrow as seen in the comic books is a scientist and surgeon, that works professionally as part of the OMNIUM organization in secret. As a Moon Knight villain in the comics, Ethan Hawke’s character searches for a cure for a disease he has that causes facial disfigurement.

It will be interesting to see how Ethan Hawke’s Arthur Harrow stands his own onscreen against Oscar Isaac’s Moon Knight. For one, both of them are some of the finest actors of their time, and to see them act in a major Marvel Studios series on Disney Plus is quite an exciting feat.

“A new globetrotting action-adventure series featuring a complex vigilante who suffers from dissociative identity disorder. The multiple identities who live inside him find themselves thrust into a deadly war of the gods against the backdrop of modern and ancient Egypt.”

In the comics, Marc Spector, a.k.a. Moon Knight, was a CIA agent-turned-mercenary making millions. During his last mercenary job in Cairo, Spector was left for dead by a former colleague.

Spector dragged himself through the sands of the desert to the tomb of Konshu, the Egyptian moon god. There he was pronounced dead but resurrected at the hands of Konshu. The resurrection took a toll, however, as he developed multiple personality disorder. When he returned to New York, he created two new personalities — Steven Grant and Jake Lockley. Grant was the millionaire womanizer while Lockley was a cab driver.

It was after developing his other personalities when he took on the mantle of Moon Knight. Konshu granted Spector with increased physical capabilities and periodic prophetic visions at night, yet even Spector himself was unsure whether Konshu was yet another personality of his own creation. Even still, Moon Knight operates with an arsenal of technology, vehicles, and costumes to suit his needs.

Moon Knight will hit Disney Plus on March 30th, 2022. Stay tuned to Heroic Hollywood for the latest news regarding the Marvel Studios series and Ethan Hawke’s role as Arthur Harrow, and make sure to subscribe to our YouTube channel for more content!
