It’s being reported that the upcoming Moon Knight Disney Plus series’ release date is going to be very soon!
According to That Hashtag Show, the Marvel Studios series is going to be released on March 30th.
That’s so close! It feels very close to me, but I also hope beyond hope that this release date is correct.
I have reached out to Disney for comment on this reported release date and have yet to get a response from them.
According to the report, Moon Knight will be the first MCU show of 2022 and will premiere on March 30th, 2022.
They also added that according to their sources, the show’s first trailer should be released very soon.
Moon Knight’s release date might be very, very soon
Moon Knight is going to star Oscar Isaac as the titular character and it looks like it’ll be an origins story.
Moon Knight is a very interesting character in Marvel Comics lore.
He’s a bit like Marvel’s take on Batman, only he’s got a more supernatural background.
Oh, and Moon Knight is completely bonkers.
He’s a bit unhinged and is very, very violent in the comics.
Moon Knight’s real name is Marc Spector and in the comics he was former Marine and CIA operative who becomes a mercenary.
However, he often has conflicting feelings about the use of violence.
What’s Moon Knight’s backstory?
Here’s the character’s backstory in the comic books (via Wikipedia):
During a job in the Sudan, he [Marc Spector] is appalled by ruthless fellow mercenary Raoul Bushman. Bushman then attacks and kills archeologist Dr. Alraune. Spector saves the archeologist’s daughter and colleague Marlene Alraune, then fights and is defeated by Bushman. The dying Spector is brought into a recently unearthed tomb for shelter and placed before a statue of the Egyptian moon god Khonshu. Spector seems to die but then suddenly revives, fully healed. He claims Khonshu wants him to be the “moon’s knight”, redeeming his life of violence by now protecting and avenging the innocent.
