(Original Post): Moon Knight is certainly one of the most popular albeit obscure properties in the Marvel Universe but that’s about to change with the upcoming series featuring Oscar Isaac in the signature role. I’ve always been a fan of the character and put him right up there with The Punisher as he is without a doubt one of the most complex anti-heroes in the MCU.
With that, we have our first look footage as a trailer teaser has dropped promising an extended look at the series this Monday during the NFL playoffs. Check out Isaac and co-star Ethan Hawke in action below!
The character of Moon Knight was created in 1975 by Doug Moench and Don Perlin. Isaacs will star as the titular character of former mercenary Mark Spector who is a superhero who uses multiple identities to fight crime.
Moon Knight also stars Mary Calamawy and Mohamed Diab along with Justin Benson & Aaron Moorhead helmed the episodes.
Isaac is starring along with Ethan Hawke who will be playing the show’s main villain who goes up against Spector. The series was written and developed by The Umbrella Academy‘s Jeremy Slater with episodes directed by Egyptian filmmaker Mohamed Diab and Synchronic duo Justin Benson and Aaron Moorhead.
I love that these lesser known characters in Marvel’s arsenal are getting some respect and streaming is a great location for this property and others like She-Hulk which is also coming soon.
Moon Knight doesn’t have a launch date yet but sources are saying that it’s coming sooner than we think so hopefully expect a date to be attached with the new trailer.
Keep it locked and loaded right here for more on Isaac, Moon Knight and more this Monday as we await the new trailer. Remember, we are your destination for everything action in 2022 and beyond!
