The series follows Steven Grant, a mild-mannered gift-shop employee, who becomes plagued with blackouts and memories of another life. On top of the exciting action sequences, the trailer hints at Marc Spector’s struggle with mental health, having to cope with dissociative identity disorder (DID), including a moment in which Spector answers the phone and doesn’t recognize his own name, learning that he 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.

 

 

 

Moon Knight was created by Doug Moench and Don Perlin and made his debut in Werewolf by Night #32 in 1975. The character was originally depicted as a marine-turned-mercenary who suffers from dissociative identity disorder and becomes the conduit for the Egyptian moon god Khonshu after an accident leaves him near-dead. Until recent decades, there was some debate concerning whether or not Khonshu was in fact a god watching over the superhero, or if the deity was yet another entity created by Spector.

 

 

“Moon Knight” stars Oscar Isaac, Ethan Hawke and May Calamawy. Mohamed Diab and the team of Justin Benson & Aaron Moorhead directed the episodes. Jeremy Slater is the head writer, and Kevin Feige, Louis D’Esposito, Victoria Alonso, Brad Winderbaum, Mohamed Diab, Jeremy Slater and Oscar Isaac are the executive producers. Grant Curtis, Trevor Waterson and Rebecca Kirsch serve as co-executive producers.

 

The series is scheduled to debut on Disney+ on March 30, 2022.
