A few short days after the one-year anniversary of WandaVision, Marvel has dropped the “world trailer premiere” for the upcoming Disney Plus show, Moon Knight, which will air on March 30. Additionally, a summary and poster are now out, giving viewers a glimpse of Oscar Isaac as Marc Spector / Moon Knight.
According to IMDB, the plot of the Disney Plus series is as follows: “A former U.S. marine, struggling with dissociative identity disorder, is granted the powers of an Egyptian moon god. But he soon finds out that these newfound powers can be both a blessing and a curse to his troubled life.”
In the trailer, viewers see Isaac’s character plagued with blackouts, memories of another life and some form of dissociative identity disorder. The series follows Isaac’s dual identities, the mild-mannered Grant, as well as mercenary Marc Spector / Moon Knight.
The trailer appears to be more of a psychological thriller than some of Marvel’s previous series, which follows the rumors that Sam Raimi’s Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness will be darker than previous Marvel installments and has an “impressive body count”. This is definitely a first for Marvel Studios, which features generally milder content for the fans, with notably less gore with the depiction of Kingpin in Disney Plus’ Hawkeye compared to his previous appearances in Netflix’s Daredevil, although the actor, Vincent D’Onofrio, has insisted that his character is the same and not a variant or rebooted version of the character.
All in all, it is exciting that Marvel Studios is venturing into newer territory with Moon Knight. Other actors appearing in the series include Ethan Hawke, Gaspard Ulliel and May Calmawy.
While it is rumored that some of Fox’s X-Men characters will appear in Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, it is unlikely that Oscar Isaac’s Apocalypse will be one. This is not the first time that Marvel Studios has cast one of Fox’s X-Men characters as a a new character; WandaVision‘s “Pietro” aka Ralph Bohner was portrayed by Evan Peters aka Peter Maximoff / Quicksilver in the X-Men franchise. This suggests that any X-Men characters appearing will be from the multiverse, but does not confirm it, as some characters, such as J.K. Simmons’ James Jonah Jameson has the same appearance in two different universes: Tom Holland’s Spider-Man’s universe and Tobey Maguire’s.
