The latest trailer of the upcoming MCU shows Moon Knight shows Oscar Isaac as the new superhero, Marc Spector.
Marvel’s Moon Knight premiering on March 30, introduces Oscar Isaac as Marc Spector (a former US marine), a new superhero who has dissociative identity disorder. He becomes a channel for the Egyptian moon god Khonshu.
Marvel and Disney Plus revealed the official trailer of Moon Knight during the NFL Super Wild Card Game on Monday on ESPN and ABC.
In the official trailer, Marc cannot tell the difference between his dreams and real life. After visiting a museum, he sees a vision of an Egyptian god, Khonshu. He also meets Ethan Hawke, a villain, who encourages Marc to embrace the darkness. At the end of the trailer, we can see Marc in the Moon Knight costume as he beats someone up.
The trailer is a little vague on how Marc gets his power, but it is possible that Disney+ and Marvel will keep the details to themselves until its premier in March.
