New “Moon Knight” Video Reveals Marvel’s Most Twisted New Superhero

“This is the best worst day of my life,” says Stephen Grant (Oscar Isaac), a mild-mannered gift shop employee who makes a fantastic discovery in Moon Knight. That discovery is that he’s also Marc Spector, a mercenary whose dangerous life as a superpowered avenging angel is the polar opposite of Stephen’s quiet existence. Marc is, in every sense, a completely unexpected doppelganger, one who is all mixed up with everything from supervillains to the Egyptian gods. In a new video, the Stephen/Marc dynamic is teased out as Marvel Studios further draws back the curtain on their next, highly ambitious series on Disney+.

Moon Knight will properly explore the mental health issues that Stephen grapples with. Are his visions real, like when he seemingly comes face-to-face with the Egyptian moon god Khonshu? Is he actually a mercenary with fantastic powers who should listen to the likes of the mysterious Arthur Harrow (Ethan Hawke), who tells him to embrace his inner chaos? Isaac said in a previous featurette that Moon Knight is “a real, legitimate character study” that takes the mental health aspect of his character “incredibly seriously.” Co-star May Calamawy says that the tone of Moon Knight is “like Fight Club meets Indiana Jones,” which is the kind of Marvel series we didn’t know we needed.

“For me what’s really exciting is that it’s totally unpredictable,” Isaac has said about his new series and his first go-round as a Marvel superhero. We’ll find out soon enough. Moon Knight arrives on Disney+ on March 30. Check out the new featurette below.
