A new concept design shows Oscar Isaac becoming Moon Knight for the character’s highly-anticipated Disney Plus series.
When it was revealed that Oscar Isaac was set to star in Moon Knight, fans immediately tried to figure out which version of the hero the Disney Plus series will focus on. Since Marc Spector has multiple identities there’s obviously plenty of range for Isaac to explore different aspects of his personality, but there’s also a number of different classic looks for the hero from his comic book history. From the classic silver armor, all the way up to the suave Mr. Knight tailored suit, there’s a lot of potential for the Disney Plus series.
New artwork from Instagram user ‘ultraraw26’ imagines how the Moon Knight suit would be translated into live-action. Instead of just sticking him with a typical militaristic costume, this concept design gives Oscar Isaac a pretty impressive costume of plated armor that feels like if Marvel Studios tackled the Assassin’s Creed franchise. The intricate concept also looks like it uses the Seal of the Vishanti on his belt, which is also the symbol commonly associated with Doctor Strange, an interesting tie to the mystical side of Moon Knight. You can see Oscar Isaac as Moon Knight 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.
