Marvel Studios dropped the first trailer for the upcoming Moon Knight series starring Oscar Issac (Star Wars, Dune). We see Isaac’s character, Stephen, struggling with deciphering what’s dream and reality, insomnia, and, due to being chained to the bed, lycanthropy?? While I’m certain he won’t become a werewolf, he definitely will become the vigilante, Moon Knight. Traditionally, Moon Knight is the crime-fighting alter ego…well ONE of “Stephen’s” alter egos. Besides becoming Moon Knight, Stephen also struggles with dissociative identity disorder which is probably why the voice on the other end of the cell phone calls him Marc. Marc Spector is also one of his identities. The departure here is that we don’t know if Moon Knight is a supernatural character or his “transformation” is a byproduct of his mental health issues. Ethan Hawke’s character, Arthur Harrow, says to him “You have chaos in you!” This could refer to Moon Knight’s mental status OR perhaps could harken (or should I say Harkness) to Wandavision and the chaos magic Scarlett Witch possesses. Either way, I’m sure we will be in for a helluva ride when Moon Knight hits Disney+ on March 30th of this year. Don’t believe me? Check out the trailer below…
You’re puns are bad and you should feel bad!
I do. I apologize.
