Marvel Studios is developing a Nova project with Moon Knight writer Sabir Pirzada.
The Marvel Cinematic Universe is continuing its expansion. After successfully branching out to episodic storytelling in 2021 on Disney Plus, the studio is doubling down on its efforts. The latest project from Marvel Studios is Moon Knight. Starring Oscar Isaac, the series will be a blend of action-adventure and psychological-thriller projects, resulting in a superhero cocktail that looks far different than anything that has come before it.
Moon Knight seems to be a promising project for Marvel Studios and the execs have already found key talent from the show’s writing room. Deadline reports that Kevin Feige and Co. are developing a Nova project, spearheaded by Moon Knight writer Sabir Pirzada. It’s unclear if the project will be a Disney Plus series or a theatrical film.
A member of the intergalactic police force Nova Corps, the character has been around since the ’60s. With the ability to fly and increased strength, the character has fought Skrulls in the past, who are set to be a major threat for the Marvel Cinematic Universe going forward thanks to projects like Secret Invasion.
Here is the synopsis for Moon Knight:
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.
Starring Oscar Isaac, Ethan Hawke, Gaspard Ulliel, and May Calamawy, the series is set to make its Disney Plus debut on March 30th.
