Today’s Super Bowl festivities aren’t holding back on the Marvel content. Fresh off of the latest Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness trailer dropping, we also now have new preview for Disney+’s Moon Knight series to take in. While the first batch of footage from last month was certainly packed with goodies, this TV spot stands out by giving us our best look yet at Oscar Isaac’s character suited up as the title superhero.
The first Moon Knight trailer ended on a cool note with Oscar Isaac’s Marc Spector fully suited up and beating up an unidentified individual, then turning around and walking towards the camera. It was great capper, but for this latest preview, we have an even better look at Isaac’s brutal"Moon Knight, who Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige has described as “brutal.” This time around, the protagonist is posed superhero-style before he jumps to lay the beatdown on someone firing a gun at him.
Right after that moment, the Moon Knight Super Bowl preview cuts to a different scene of the superhero catching one of his classic boomerangs, and the whole thing ends with Moon Knight jumping to another rooftop as the crescent moon glistens in the background. Other cool moments from the TV spot include Marc Spector being approached from behind by Khonsu, the Egyptian moon god who chooses Marc to be its conduit, as well as a sprinkling more of Ethan Hawke’s Arthur Darrow, a cult leader who encourages Marc to embrace his inner darkness.
If this 30-second Moon Knight preview wasn’t enough for you, Marvel Studio has also released a new poster for the series highlighting the main Marc Spector personality and his vigilante persona.
Like his comic book counterpart, Oscar Isaac’s Marc Spector is a mercenary who has dissociative identity disorder, with one of his other personalities being Steven Grant, an unassuming museum employee who experiences blackouts and flashes of memories from another life. In addition to getting a classic-looking Moon Knight, the series will also give us Mr. Knight, i.e. the superhero personality who wears a dapper suit and tie, which originates from writer Warren Ellis and artist Declan Shelley’s run on the Moon Knight comic book series.
The Moon Knight TV series’ cast also includes the late Gaspard Ulliel (who’s reportedly playing Anton Mogart, a.k.a. Midnight Man), Lucy Thackeray and May Calamawy. Behind the cameras, The Umbrella Academy’s Jeremy Slater served as head writer, while Mohamed Diab headed the directing team and helmed four episodes, with duo Justin Benson and Aaron Moorhead handling the other two. This is Oscar Isaac’s third superhero media outing, having previously played Apocalypse in X-Men: Apocalypse and Spider-Man 2099 in Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, a role he’s reprising for Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse (Part One).
Moon Knight premieres on Disney+ March 30, so keep your eyes peeled on CinemaBlend for more news about the series. For those wondering what other original MCU content the Mouse House’s streaming service has lined up, look through our guide of upcoming Marvel TV shows.
