Revealed last Friday during Disney + Day, the first images of Moon Knight with Oscar Isaac caused a sensation.
It’s time to take a first look at the darkest hero in the Marvel Cinematic Universe yet. For Disney + Day, the platform showcased several of its upcoming content from the MCU universe, including Moon Knight, which stars Oscar Issac in what could be the darkest and most exhilarating Marvel Studios series yet. day.
In this brief teaser, Marc Spector – the hero of the series played by Oscar Isaac – struggles to tell the difference between his waking life and his dreams. To put it mildly, both seem rather violent. This feeling of doubling is also expressed by the voice since it seems to speak in two different voices.

Obviously, because it’s a teaser, we don’t clearly see his costumed alter ego – just a jump across the city skyline in the distance, a violent beating down a hallway – but we do see some. enough to be sure that this adaptation is going to be extremely faithful to the character.
Created by Doug Moench and Don Perlin, Marc Spector aka Moon Knight is a veteran with dissociative identity disorder who becomes the avatar of the Egyptian moon god Khonshu after a near-death experience.

His sanity seems to be a real narrative issue both in his personal life and in his role as a masked vigilante. The fact that the Disney + series doesn’t seem to want to stray away from this makes Marc Spector all the more interesting. It’s not just another Daredevil. And then Moon Knight registers, like WandaVision, Falcon & co in Phase IV of the MCU. We can guess the potential of this six-episode series about a struggling character who really has no equivalent in the Marvel Cinematic Universe yet.
