Moon Knight is almost ready to be released on Disney+. The Marvel series will premiere on March 30th, and the trailer reveals how the streaming service will portray the mercenary turned superhero.
Steven Grant, played by Oscar Isaac, is a gift store employee who has problems distinguishing not only between dreams and real life, but also between identities, as he discovers when he shares a body with mercenary Marc Spector. While dealing with a threat among Egyptian gods, the two personalities must reconcile, eventually coalescing into the show’s namesake knight.
Ethan Hawke and Ramy’s May Calamawy also star in the series. The season was directed by Mohamed Diab, Justin Benson, and Aaron Moorhead. Jeremy Slater of The Umbrella Academy is the principal writer, with Kevin Feige of the Marvel Cinematic Universe serving as one of multiple executive producers.
Moon Knight is one of several MCU “Phase Four” shows set to premiere in 2019, including projects like WandaVision and Hawkeye that are already available, as well as projects like Ms. Marvel and She Hulk that have yet to appear. It symbolises the next wave of Disney+ entertainment in several ways.
Even if it still relies on stars like Isaac (who is no stranger to Disney) to lure viewers, Disney is confident enough to rely less on connections to popular Marvel movies and more on new stories.
