The first reactions for Moon Knight have started to pop up as critics have been sent screeners for the latest Marvel Disney+ series and some are calling it the best MCU show to date.
The series doesn’t premiere until March 30, 2022, but these early reactions should get fans pumped for its arrival. Our very own Alex Maidy said “I have seen the first four episodes and it is dark, violent, and very funny. Oscar Isaac is stellar and Ethan Hawke is terrifying. Not a traditional origin story but also unlike any other @MarvelStudios series to date.” Sab Astley of Collider also said Oscar Isaac is the “best addition to the MCU since RDJ [Robert Dowey Jr.]” You can check out some of the Twitter reactions below!

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.”
