One of the latest characters entering Marvel’s ever-unfolding screen universe is one Steven Grant (Isaac), a mild-mannered gift-shop employee plagued with blackouts and memories of another life. “I can’t tell the difference between my waking life and dreams,” he says in the trailer. He discovers it’s actually dissociative identity disorder – and he happens to be sharing a body with a mercenary named Marc Spector. As Steven/Marc’s enemies converge upon them, they must navigate their complex identities while thrust into a deadly mystery among the powerful gods of Egypt.
The series also stars Ethan Hawke as the villain Arthur Harrow, a cult leader pushing Spector to become one with his inner darkness. “There’s chaos in you. Embrace the chaos.”
An exciting trailer below, showcasing a good amount of trippy mayhem for our confused character as he becomes the powerful superhero. A potentially meaty hero role for Isaac, taking on his second Marvel Comics character following En Sabah Nur/Apocalypse in X-Men: Apocalypse.
Jeremy Slater (The Umbrella Academy) is head writer/executive producer of the six-episode series, with Isaac also exec producing alongside Kevin Feige, Louis D’Esposito, Victoria Alonso, Brad Winderbaum, and Mohamed Diab. Directing the episodes are Justin Benson & Aaron Moorhead (Synchronic, The Endless), Diab (Clash), and, interestingly, George Clooney (episode 5, according to IMDb).
Also starring Gaspard Ulliel as Anton Mogart/Midnight Man and May Calamawyin an undisclosed role, Moon Knight is set to premiere on Disney+ on March 30th. Check out the trailer, plus the new series poster beneath it.
