Moon Knight Trailer Released – The MCU’s Supernatural Phase Begins
The very first trailer for Disney Plus’ new Marvel Studios show, Moon Knight, has been released and it looks like this show’s going to change the MCU forever.
You can check the trailer out for yourselves below:
This trailer shows Oscar Isaac who’s playing the show’s titular character, Moon Knight.
However, in the trailer, his character is living in London and has a rather thick London accent.
It seems as though his character is suffering from dissociative identity disorder (DID).
When he picks up the phone, the person on the other end of the line calls him Marc.
The character of Moon Knight started off as Marc Spector and in some of the comics, he did have multiple personalities, one of them being called Steven Grant.
Moon Knight on Disney Plus is going to start the MCU’s supernatural phase
It seems as though Marvel Studios is taking elements from the comics, but this won’t be a straight adaptation of what happens in them.
In the comics, Steven Grant is a billionaire living in New York.
However, here Steven seems to be working in London’s Natural History Museum.
What we can see from this first Moon Knight trailer is that the series is really going to kickstart the MCU’s supernatural phase.
The Marvel Cinematic Universe is going to get spooky
We got a little taste of that in WandaVision, however, with Moon Knight being connected to the Egyptian moon god, Khonshu, I think the show might lean heavily into the more supernatural parts of the MCU.
We have yet to really explore that part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
Moon Knight will star Isaac, Ethan Hawke, Gaspard Ulliel, and May Calamawy.
It’ll be six episodes long and the series was created by Doug Moench, Jeremy Slater, and Don Perlin.
The trailer also confirmed that Moon Knight will start streaming on Disney Plus on March 30th later this year.
