Moon Knight star Oscar Isaac calls Marvel’s upcoming Disney Plus series groundbreaking.
During 2019’s San Diego Comic-Con, Marvel Studios wowed audiences and film journalists alike when it was announced that several of the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s upcoming projects wound, in fact, be series for the Disney Plus streaming series. In the two years since then, a number of other projects have also been announced which include Ms. Marvel, She-Hulk, and Moon Knight.
Officially revealed in 2019, Moon Knight slowly built up its cast and crew even as the Covid-19 pandemic ravaged the world. It was only just confirmed earlier this year that Star Wars actor Oscar Isaac was set to star as the titular character. While little is known about the upcoming series, the actor has gone out of his way to say how different it is from other MCU projects.
While doing a press tour for his latest film, The Card Counter, Oscar Isaac was asked about the upcoming Disney Plus series. He remained tight-lipped about it for the most part but did call the upcoming series groundbreaking:
The whole thing is… What I can say is it’s gonna be… It’s gonna be a groundbreaking show.
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.
