Marvel have had huge success with their series like Loki, WandaVision and Hawkeye on Disney+, the latter of which has surpassed the franchise’s bloodiest record. Now, fans are undoubtedly excited for MCU’s release of Moon Knight on the streaming platform.
Here’s everything we know so far about Marvel’s Moon Knight:
What is Marvel’s Moon Knight about?
The dark series is set to see Oscar Isaac playing the role of former marine Marc Spector, who becomes a vigilante after embodying the Egyptian moon god Khonshu. And, in true Marvel fashion, he gains some pretty cool powers.
The show, which was written by The Umbrella Academy’s Jeremy Slater, unravels a deadly secret, while Spector attempts to keep his dissociative identity disorder under wraps. One of his personalities, Steven Grant, appears in the trailer, and shows Spector becoming a polite gift shop member of staff, who frequently passes out and envisions flashbacks from a different life.
Spector says in the trailer: “I’m losing it, I can’t tell the difference between life and dreams.”

Marvel’s Moon Knight is set to be released on Disney+ on Wednesday 30th March 2022.
The series comprises six episodes, four of which were directed by Mohamed Diab, and the other two directed by Justin Benson and Aaron Moorhead (Archive 81).
