Every hotshot actor’s career eventually gets to a point when they face the risk of becoming over saturated. Having starred in multiple mega-franchises over the span of a few short years, including Star Wars, Dune, and Marvel, first as a villain in X-Men:Moon Knight?
Apocalypse and now as the lead in Disney+’s Moon Knight, Oscar Isaac has established himself as a major actor in the industry. In both roles, he is equally credible as a greying university professor and as Timothee Chalamet’s paternal grandfather.
His future roles will be as a video game hero and as a cinematic icon, among other things. When it comes to Isaac, we don’t have to be concerned about being swamped. There is always, always space for more. It is a fact of life.
And so we come to Moon Knight, the newest in Marvel Studios‘ plethora of television programs that are unique to Disney’s streaming channel, which is currently available.
We know that Isaac will play the titular hero, but other than that, we only have a few key information regarding the film’s upcoming release in 2022. Let’s take it step by step.
What Is the Storyline of Moon Knight?
With his deep voice and creepy atmosphere, it’d be easy to mistake Moon Knight for a superheroes’ version of Batman in the Marvel universe.
The character of Marc Spector, sometimes known as Moon Knight, takes a very different route from Bruce Wayne. Because Marc, a former United States Marine who is now working for the CIA, suffers from dissociative identity disorder, Isaac will have to take on the identities of a number of different people.
To make matters worse, after uncovering an ancient archaeological dig site, Marc is endowed with the abilities of the Egyptian moon deity Khonshu, which further complicates matters.
What this means for Isaac, in particular, is still up in the air—but he will most certainly not be your typical military veteran.
First established in 1975 by writer Doug Moench and artist Don Perlin, Marc is regarded one of Marvel’s more mature heroes, which means Moon Knight the series might be harsher in tone than the normal Disney+ fare.
When Will Moon Knight Be Released on Disney+ and What Channel Will It Be on?
Marvel hasn’t given a particular release date for the series, instead suggesting that it would be “coming soon” in 2022 with the phrase “coming soon.”
Who’s Going to Be in the Cast?
We do know that Isaac will star as Moon Knight, and that Ethan Hawke will play an as-yet-unnamed villain who is inspired by David Koresh, the cult leader who was responsible for the Waco tragedy in 1993.
Other confirmed cast members include May Calamawy (Ramy) and Gaspard Ulliel, who will play the role of Jacques.
Is There a Trailer for This Film?
However, on November 12, Disney+ Day, the business did share a few seconds of video from the upcoming program to the public. Marc appears to be in a state of mental anguish as he wrestles with his various identities as well as his newly discovered powers in the brief video.
Moments later, a caped figure in white dashes over the top of a skyscraper, saying, I can’t tell the difference between my daily life and my nightmares.
Although there isn’t much information in the video, it does offer us a tasty look of the raw energy Isaac will bring to this role—something the MCU, which has been accused of having a limited emotional range, really needs right now.
