Moon Knight is one of the many Marvel characters who appear to be inspired by DC Comics’ Batman, and is certainly more of an obscure character to adapt, but as the company pivots into the next phase of the films and now shows it, the strangeness is on the menu. .
Moon Knight, or Marc Spector, is a mercenary possessed by an ancient Egyptian moon god named Khonshu. This possession is what gives him his superpowers but also multiple conflicting personalities, including a cab driver, a rich playboy and a masked vigilante. Marvel and Isaac’s ad – “WE ARE MOONKNIGHT” – appears to directly reference the character’s complex psychology.
Disney first announced the Moon knight series in 2019, and Oscar Isaac has been rumored to have been in contention for the lead role since October 2020, when Variety reported that he was in talks to join the Disney Plus project. The show’s chief writer is Jeremy Slater, who co-created the Umbrella Academy Netflix show and also created and produced the extremely underrated executive The Exorcist Television adaptation.
Moon knight doesn’t have an announced release date, but several more Marvel shows are on their way to Disney Plus soon. Loki is scheduled to premiere on June 9 and both Ms. Marvel and Hawk Eye are still scheduled for the second half of 2021.
