Marvel's Moon Knight trailer introduces Oscar Isaac to the MCU as Marc Spector, a superhero with dissociative identity disorder. In the comics, Spector gets his powers from the Egyptian moon god Khonshu, who wants him to serve as the "moon's knight." In the show, Isaac's character will be brought to life by Isaac, who was cast as the former U.S. marine-turned-superhero in late 2020. Filming on Moon Knight took place last year, wrapping up in October ahead of the show premiering in March this year. Jeremy Slater (The Umbrella Academy) serves as Moon Knight's head writer, with Egyptian filmmaker Mohamed Diab leading the directing team, which includes Justin Benson & Aaron Moorhead (Synchronic). The first footage of Moon Knight was unveiled as part of Disney+ Day 2021, revealing teasing glimpses of Isaac in costume as the titular superhero as well as some shots of the actor in street clothes and living with DID. More recently the Moon Knight trailer teaser offered a better look at Isaac's superhero costume, including a brief shot showing how he suits up. The new footage also revealed a first look at Ethan Hawke's villain, whose character name was not yet known. Now, after teasing its release over the weekend, the full Moon Knight trailer is here. Related: Moon Knight Needs To Be More Than Just The MCU's Batman Marvel and Disney+ revealed the Moon Knight trailer during Monday night's NFL Super Wild Card game on ESPN and ABC. Per the official synopsis for Moon Knight, the show introduces Isaac as a man named Steven Grant, "a mild-mannered gift shop employee" who discovers he has DID after struggling with blackouts and seeing memories of another life. One of Steven's identities is the mercenary Marc Spector, and the two must work together as they're "thrust into a deadly mystery among the powerful gods of Egypt." Check out the Moon Knight trailer below. Although Marc Spector is Moon Knight's most well known identity, Isaac is first introduced in the Moon Knight trailer as Steven Grant. That name also comes from the character's comics storyline, with Steven Grant being one of Marc's identities. In the comics, Steven is a billionaire businessman, so it appears Marvel is changing the character somewhat. It's unclear from the Moon Knight trailer which, if any, of Marc's other identities from the comics will appear in the series, or if there will be new identities introduced that aren't from the source material. However, since the trailer spends a great deal of time introducing Steven/Marc's DID, it seems the disorder will be explored in depth in the Moon Knight show. As for Moon Knight's origin story, the trailer is a little more vague about how Steven becomes the superhero, though the synopsis implies it's part of a larger storyline. It's possible Marvel and Disney+ will keep the details of that plot close to the vest until Moon Knight premieres in March in order to hold onto any surprises. As for Hawke's villain, he isn't named in the trailer, but the closed captioning credits his lines to Arthur Harrow, a character who appeared in only one issue of the comics. It was previously revealed the villain was inspired by the cult leader David Koresh and that influence is certainly on display in the footage. More about Hawke's character may be teased in another Moon Knight trailer, though it's possible much will be kept secret until the show's release. For now, the Moon Knight trailer offers a good idea of what to expect from the series.
