A new poster for the Marvel / Disney + series Moon Knight shows Oscar Isaacs Marc Spector with his characteristic crescent weapon covered in blood.
The first poster for the Disney + / Marvel series Knights of the Moon shows Marc Spector’s cartoon precision crescent weapon. Knights of the Moon stars Oscar Isaac, Ethan Hawke and May Calamawy in the first live-action adaptation ever of the Marvel Comics character. The show is written by Jeremy Slater, who also acts as showrunner, with episodes directed by Mohamed Diab and Justin Benson & Aaron Moorhead.
Knights of the Moon was created by Doug Moench and Don Perlin on the pages of Werewolves at night in 1975 and has reviewed several current and limited comic books ever since. The character’s real name is Marc Spector, a former CIA mercenary who is mortally wounded in a fight with his enemy, Raoul Bushman. Left in a dug tomb in the form of a statue of the Egyptian moon god Khonshu, Spector is miraculously healed and gains abilities that connect with the phases of the moon. He is also a character who has dissociative identity disorder that carries a number of personalities within him, including Steven Grant’s personality, which is what Isaac seems to start as in the show.
For now to go along with Knights of the Moon trailer, Disney + has released the first poster for the series, which shows Spector holding his distinctive crescent weapon. The trailer does not show Moon Knight using the weapon, but it is shown on the poster exactly as it appears in the cartoons that act as a kind of angular weapon as well as a throwing weapon. The poster also highlights the mummy-like effects of his costume, which are being teased in Knights of the Moon trailer. Take a look at the poster below:
Isaac is no stranger to taking on remarkable roles as he starred as Poe Dameron in the most recent Star wars trilogy and played Duke Leto Atreides in Denis Villeneuves Dune. The actor is also ready to play the iconic Solid Snake in director Jordan Vogt-Roberts’ adaptation of the popular video game, e. Metal Gear Solid. He will also take on a different kind of iconic role in Barry Levinson’s Francis and the godfather, who plays the legendary director Francis Ford Coppola.
Knights of the Moon is an interesting character for Marvel to adapt to, as he is a very complex and violent cartoon character, often compared to as Batman with dissociative identity disorder. Marc Spector, however, does not have such a tragic past as Bruce Wayne, but he carries on a number of sins from the time frame that make him a unique character to bring into the MCU fold. Whether Marvel will lean into its more violent and morally dubious aspects is still unknown, but so far the look, feel and tone are in line with his comic book roots. Knights of the Moon starts streaming exclusively on Disney + from March 30th.
