Oscar Isaac is a seasoned name in the superhero universe known mostly for his bad guy roles, having formerly performed in the CGI-and-makeup loaded trenches as the ostensible notorious fella in X-Men: Apocalypse of 2016. But now fans can eventually experience the good-guy sort of character played by Isaac as revealed in the latest trailer of Moon Knight.
On Monday night, the first official trailer for the much-awaited new TV series from Marvel was released featuring Oscar Isaac as a furtive superhero. Remember all the superheroes? If don’t then you got to watch Marvel movies in order, which has an exceptional series with superheroes that possess superpowers, abilities beyond those of ordinary people!
The footage unveils Steven Grant (played by Isaac), an employee of a museum gift shop suffering from bizarre memories and blackouts. He says in the trailer, “I have a sleeping disorder and can’t tell the difference between waking life and dreams.”
For those who don’t know much about the character and the backstory of Marvel hoodlum Moon Knight is quite simple; Grant is a former CIA employee turned global mercenary who is resuscitated by an Egyptian god to use his dissociative identity disorder to combat crime armed with small, moon-shaped boomerangs. It gets as simple as any comic book tale.
Moon Knight TV series is made by Jeremy Slater, who has recently updated his portfolio with amazing projects including The Umbrella Academy and Exorcist TV show of Fox. The series is planned for a six-episode run initially; Marvel creative head Kevin Feige has revealed that the character will likely appear in the Marvel Cinematic Universe at some point. Given the fact that Spector sporadically appears with vampire killer Blade on Marvel’s necromantic-focused squad of eccentrics, The Midnight Sons, one can imagine that Steven Grant might appear in the Blade movie led by Mahershala Ali that is currently under production.
The trailer was released during the NFL Super Wild Card faceoff on Monday, featuring a Los Angeles Rams vs Arizona Cardinals contest. Also revealed in the trailer is an event on one night in the museum, where Grant finds a concealed key and an abandoned mobile phone that’s ringing. “Oh my god, you’re alive!” the lady on the other side of the phone yells. “What’s wrong with you, Marc?”
Marvel fans we’d love to hear you!
Marc, who is speculated as Marc Spector, a mercenary. As per the description of Marvel; “Steven discovers he has dissociative identity disorder and shares a body with mercenary Marc Spector. As Steven/Marc’s enemies converge upon them, they must navigate their complex identities while thrust into a deadly mystery among the powerful gods of Egypt.”
“There’s chaos in you,” the series’ mysterious villain notes, supposed to be Dr. Arthur Harrow (played by Ethan Hawke).
“Embrace the chaos,” he further adds.
The official Twitter account of Marvel Studios also uncovered the first poster for the series on Monday night, revealing details of Moon Knight’s get-up and weapon of choice that resembles a moon-like boomerang.
The series will mainly revolve around Spector as he delves into an Egyptian god Khonshu.
“Struggling with multiple personalities and amoral inclinations, Marc Spector fights on against all odds as the cloaked avenger Moon Knight,” Marvel formerly stated in a description of the TV series.
The upcoming series also includes Ethan Hawke, Gaspard Ulliel, and Palestinian-Egyptian star May Calamawy.
Moon Knight is part of the upcoming extensive production schedule of MCU. Other notable forthcoming releases include WandaVision, Loki, What If…?, Falcon and the Winter Soldier, and Hawkeye. Also in the production are Ms. Marvel, She-Hulk, Secret Invasion, Armor Wars, and Ironheart.
