After the conclusion of The Book of Boba, it’s now the turn of Marvel Studios. Moon Knight, the team’s next project, is several years away. After only one trailer, we can already tell that this show will be worth waiting for when it premieres on March 30th. As Steven Grant grapples with existential questions and the possibility of receiving superpowers from the Egyptian Moon God Khonshu, the series follows him as he becomes entangled in his fractured psyche.
If the trailers are to be believed, this is going to be one weird TV show from Marvel Studios. Rumor has it the experience will be brutal, as well. However, that’s not the only reason. Take a look at the first teaser and you’ll see what I mean.
Dissociative identity disorder affects character. That’s why the first episode of the series will feature Isaac as Steven Grant. However, it will also feature him juggling his other personalities and trying to find his feet in the real world. The part of himself that wears a fancy superhero outfit, Marc Spector, is the one he needs to be concerned about.
Aside from the initial footage, new magazine covers give fans a better look at the titular character’s costume.
Oscar Isaac’s Moon Knight features prominently on two new Empire magazine covers. In both images, Oscar Isaac portrays the film’s title character in all of his glory.
With his bright white eyes and blood-spattered knuckles on display, the first image offers the best glimpse yet at Moon Knight’s mummified-inspired costume:
Possibly implying that Sun God Ra is a hidden villain in the show, the second image shows the hero in a stern pose with Sun God Ra behind him.
This month’s wait will be a long one, and it’s not going to be easy. But seeing these stunning images of the hero’s costume doesn’t make it any easier. One of the best Marvel Studios films ever made.
As seen in the first teaser, Oscar Isaac’s Moon Knight costume is not something the hero made with a sewing machine. However, viewers will not be able to take anything they see at face value. So, perhaps it’s the imagination of a broken man. The show’s Egyptian themes are also well-represented in the design. The fearsomeness of the hero gives him an edge in any fight.
