A new Marvel hero rises in the first full trailer for Moon Knight, the Marvel Studios original series launching this spring on Disney+. Starring Oscar Isaac as Marc Spector, a complex vigilante who suffers from dissociative identity disorder, the globetrotting action-adventure series set against the backdrop of modern and ancient Egypt finds the spectral superhero's multiple identities thrust into a deadly war of the gods. Under the first full moon of 2022, Marvel called on the power of the Egyptian Moon god Khonshu to reveal a lunar look at Moon Knight during the NFL playoffs.
Mohamed Diab (Clash, Cairo 678) and duo Justin Benson and Aaron Moorhead (V/H/S: Viral, Synchronic) direct the six-episode series from producer Kevin Feige (Spider-Man: No Way Home, Disney+'s Hawkeye) and head writer Jeremy Slater (The Umbrella Academy, television's The Exorcist). Part of Phase 4 of the MCU, Moon Knight also stars May Calamawy (Djinn, Ramy) in an undisclosed role.
"It's been a while since we've had an action hero who jumps out of buildings and gets into fights," Feige previously told Emmy Magazine of the costumed vigilante revived by Khonshu as a crescent crusader. "The mental illness is a unique aspect of the program."
Last January, Marvel Studios expanded its cinematic universe onto the small screen with its first batch of original television series: Avengers spinoffs WandaVision, The Falcon and the Winter Soldier, Loki, and Hawkeye. The spring premiere of Moon Knight launches the next phase of Marvel Studios television as part of a schedule that includes upcoming Disney+ series She-Hulk, Ms. Marvel, and Secret Invasion.
Marvel's Moon Knight premieres March 30 exclusively on Disney+.
