Marvel never stops releasing movies and innovating. Such a big franchise that comes from such an extensive comic book series always has themes to make some kind of movie or TV series. This time they have returned to the Disney+ series with Moon Knight, which will premiere on March 30 on the platform.
The series is just around the corner and expectations are high. The bar is high as series like Wanda Vision or Loki have surprised all fans for good. Moon Knight is not a well-known character in the world of superheroes and only the most fanatical fans who have read the comics know who this character really is. However, the expectations of the fans are so high that they have rubbed off on the not-so-fans and now everyone is looking forward to the premiere of the series.
This production stars Oscar Isacc who steps into the role of Marc Spector, or as we have referred to him before, Moon Knight. This character is considered one of the most disturbing characters of the Marvel factory. It is in fact quite a plot challenge. On the one hand, he is a hero who has more dark points than bright ones and who often walks through complicated spaces of violence. On the other end, it is the point of union with Marvel’s unique concept of magic. This production promises to add a new layer to the already complex Marvel Universe, with elements of Egyptian mythology and powers very different from what we had seen so far.
Seeing the teaser of the series, that we can soon see in full, we can see that the series will mix all possible elements, from drama to humor, without forgetting the action and some fantastic element.
The series tells the story of Steven Grant, a kindly gift store employee who suffers memory loss and experiences memories from another life. Steven discovers that he has dissociative identity disorder and that he shares a body with mercenary Marc Spector. As Steven/Marc’s enemies converge, he must grapple with the complexity of their identities while immersed in a lethal mystery that dwells among the powerful gods of Egypt.
The ex-Marine turned avatar of an Egyptian god is entirely based in magic. The concept surrounding Moon Knight is tied entirely in the possibility of the intervention of the gods in human life. Beyond the wanderings of Thor or the extraordinary abilities of Loki and Sylvie, Spector is linked to a different layer of power.
