Disney + is finally close to being released Moon Knights. The Marvel series now premieres on March 30, and the trailer shows how the streaming service will handle the mercenary who has become a superhero. Oscar Isaac plays the lead role as Steven Grant, a gift shop worker who has trouble distinguishing not just between dreams and waking life, but between identities – he learns that he shares body with mercenary Marc Spector. The two identities have to unite as they battle a threat among Egyptian gods, eventually merging into the series’ namesake knight.
The series also stars Ethan Hawke and Frame‘s May Calamawy. Mohamed Diab and duo Justin Benson and Aaron Moorhead directed the season. Umbrella AcademyJeremy Slater is the lead author, with Marvel Cinematic Universe guru Kevin Feige acting as one of several executive producers.
Moon Knights is one of several MCU “Phase Four” shows announced in 2019, including now available projects such as WandaVision and Hawkeye as well as yet-to-be-released productions such as Ms. Marvel and She Hulk. In some ways, it represents the next wave of Disney + content. Disney is confident enough to focus less on connections to popular Marvel movies and more on new stories, though it still leans on stars like Isaac (even no stranger to Disney) to attract viewers.
