A teaser dropped for Marvel Studios’ Moon Knight starring Oscar Isaac ahead of its official trailer premiere on Monday.
2022 is already shaping up to be an exciting year for Marvel Studios. After a pretty eventful 2021, which saw the release of four new movies and five original series on Disney Plus, it’s safe to say that the momentum will continue this year. One of the more intriguing new entries is with the original series, Moon Knight, which stars Oscar Isaac in the lead role.
We got a small tease of Moon Knight during Disney Plus Day, in which we got a bit of footage featuring Oscar Isaac in action as the protagonist. Now, a new teaser just dropped, featuring a closer look, including our first glimpse at Ethan Hawke. While we will be getting our first full look at the trailer this coming Monday during the NFL Super Wild Card matchup on ESPN and ABC, this teaser hints at something quite unique for the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
You can check out the teaser for Oscar Isaac’s Moon Knight down below:
Here is the synopsis for Oscar Isaac’s new series:
“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!
