The first set photo from Marvel Studios’ Moon Knight series gives us a look at Ethan Hawke’s character as filming begins in Budapest.

After a cool training video with Oscar Isaac, it appears Moon Knight filming is finally underway in Budapest. So far, the Marvel Studios shows on Disney Plus have covered characters we’ve already seen in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. However, the shows will also be covering new characters like Ms. Marvel, She-Hulk, and Moon Knight. We’ve seen set photos from Ms. Marvel and She-Hulk, now we got our first from Moon Knight with Ethan Hawke.

In Moon Knight, Ethan Hawke will be playing the villain, and a photo from The Budapest Reporter offers our first look at him. Hawke appears to have long hair, a brown outfit, and a walking cane in the photo. Some speculate Hawke is playing Marvel’s Dracula while others are pinning him as Werewolf by Night, Bushman, Count Nefaria, or Sun King. You can take a look at the set photo via Twitter below.

Who do you think Ethan Hawke is playing in Moon Knight? Speculate below!

In the comics, Marc Spector, a.k.a. Moon Knight, was a CIA agent-turned-mercenary making millions. His wealth from being a mercenary and investments land him anywhere between $50 million to $3 billion in net worth, granting him a suave Bruce Wayne-style life. Yet 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.
