Marvel Studios just dropped the first poster and trailer for the upcoming Moon Knight series on Disney+, along with a debut date for the series, and we have them for you to check out.
Moon Knight was first announced during Disney+ Day 2021 in November, and we got an initial sneak peak at some footage.
If you’re not familiar with the series, actor Oscar Isaac plays Marc Spector, aka Moon Knight, a former mercenary whose dissociative identity disorder manifests as different distinct personas.
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, as Spector becomes the embodiment of Khonshu, the Egyptian god of the moon.
Egyptian filmmaker Mohamed Diab will direct the series, along with Justin Benson and Aaron Moorhead. Actors May Calamawy and Ethan Hawke co-star.
I’m hoping this series will ultimately lead to a Midnight Sons movie or series. This is a a supernatural superhero group that includes Doctor Strange, Blade (who just got introduced back into the MCU), Morbius (who has a Sony film coming in 2022), Iron Fist (already introduced in the Netflix series), and more.
Here is the new trailer released tonight:
The trailer, set to Kid Cudi’s “Day ‘n’ Night,” touches on Spector’s multiple identities, and also introduces Hawke’s character as some sort of cult leader that the actor said during an interview on “Late Night with Seth Meyers” he based on cult leader David Koresh. I’m thinking it might be Spector’s brother Randall, who is a member of the Cult of Khonshu, and a major adversary of Moon Knight. It could also be Arthur Harrow, a doctor with a dark past and a high IQ. Hopefully Marvel will release more details before the show premieres.
This new trailer also brings a start date for the series. Marvel Studios’ Moon Knight will debut on Disney+ on March 30, 2022.
The poster features an arm holding a moon-shaped metal weapon, similar to but larger than the Crescent darts Moon Knight uses in the comics. Those darts are made of Adamantium, a man-made steel alloy that has also been used for Wolverine’s claws and skeleton, and some of Hawkeye’s trick arrows.
