With nine days left before the “Moon Knight” series debuts on Disney+, Marvel Studios has released a brief featurette video that shows us more of villain Arthur Harrow (played by Ethan Hawke).
In the clip, Layla El-Faouly (May Calamawy) entrusts a mysterious object to Steven Grant (Oscar Isaac) and the two attempt to flee Harrow and his goons.
As they try to escape, Harrow begins using his powers, and conjures something through a new portal in the floor.
Take a look:
This clip shows the character of Harrow will be different from the comics.
Originally appearing in “Moon Knight” #2, published in 1985, Harrow was a scientist who conducted unethical experiments from Auschwitz-Birkenau. But as the above clip shows, the MCU version appears to have mystical powers.
I guess we’ll find out more when “Moon Knight” debuts on Disney+ on March 30.
“Moon Knight” stars actor Oscar Isaac as Steven Grant who becomes plagued with blackouts and memories of another life. Steven discovers he has dissociative identity disorder and shares a body with mercenary Marc Spector (also played by Isaac).
Left near death by fellow mercenaries, Khonshu, the Egyptian God of the Moon, saves his life, and in return uses Spector as its earthly champion, Moon Knight.
In addition to Calamawy and Hawke, the series also stars F. Murray Abraham as Khonshu, and French actor Gaspard Ulliel as Anton Mogart, also known as “Midnight Man” in the comics.
The first season of “Moon Knight” will consist of six episodes. It is unknown if it will get a second season, or if the series will serve as a character introduction before incorporating them in upcoming films.
In a recent interview, Isaac stated he hoped Marvel will eventually incorporate Moon Knight into a group called The Midnight Sons. This is a a supernatural superhero group that includes Doctor Strange, Blade (who just got introduced back into the MCU in “Eternals”), Morbius (who has a Sony film coming in 2022), Iron Fist (already introduced in the Netflix series, but now back under Disney’s full ownership), and more.
