Marvel Studios has released the first synopsis for Oscar Isaac’s Moon Knight, which teases a “globetrotting action-adventure series.”
During Disney Plus Day, we got our first look at a couple of shows coming from Marvel Studios. Moon Knight was one of them, and the brief glimpse only showed a little bit of Oscar Isaac suited up as the new Marvel hero.
In addition to the first footage from Moon Knight, we also got a fresh synopsis for the series. You can read the synopsis for the upcoming Marvel Studios show starring Oscar Isaac below.
“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 in 2022. Stay tuned to Heroic Hollywood for the latest news regarding Oscar Isaac’s Moon Knight series, and make sure to subscribe to our YouTube channel for more content!
