Moon Knight will feature Golden Globe winner Oscar Isaac as he takes on the titular role of Steven Grant/Marc Spector, marking the fan-favorite superhero’s live-action debut.
“It follows Steven Grant, a mild-mannered gift-shop employee, who becomes plagued with blackouts and memories of another life,” says the official synopsis. “Steven discovers he has dissociative identity disorder and 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.”
The series also features the introduction of new MCU characters Ethan Hawke as Arthur Harrow, Oscar winner F. Murray Abraham as the voice of Khonshu, May Calamawy, and the late Gaspard Ulliel as Midnight Man.
