Marvel Studios has revealed the first full-length trailer and release date for Moon Knight during the NFL Playoffs this Monday. The Marvel series based on the iconic superhero Moon Knight will release on March 30 on Disney Plus.
The trailer gives the first look at the transition of Marc Spector into Moon Knight while also highlighting the characters' troubled condition. We also get to see more of Ethan Hawke's character, Arthur Harrow.
Dr. Arthur Harrow was a Nobel Prize nominee in medicine for his work in pain theory. Dr. Victoria Grail, on the other hand, had grown skeptical of how his work had progressed although his papers showed he had only conducted little animal studies. Grail objected to his candidacy after tracing documents linked to Nazi scientists' covert experiments in Auschwitz back to Harrow. The Nuremberg Tribunal had ordered that the records be burned, but they had suddenly vanished. Despite claiming to be in Mexico to study the jaguar and armadillo, Grail was convinced that Harrow was carrying out the Auschwitz trials and was dispatched by the Nobel Committee to interrogate him and report back to Stockholm.
Harrow became an agent of O.M.N.I.U.M. at an unknown point in time, who funded his research into finding a way to make the human body impervious to pain, and he was set up in a secret laboratory beneath the ruins of a Mayan pyramid, where he experimented on peasant laborers whom he brought under his control. Harrow sought this as a means of alleviating his chronic suffering and facial paralysis, but O.M.N.I.U.M.'s true objective was unknown.
Starring Oscar Isaac as the titular character, the Disney Plus series is also rumored to have cameos of several Marvel Characters including Blade and Werewolf by Night.
Below is the poster for the series:

The series follows Steven Grant, a mild-mannered gift-shop employee who suffers from blackouts and flashbacks to another existence. Steven realizes that he suffers from dissociative identity disorder and shares a body with mercenary Marc Spector. As Steven/foes Marc's close in on them, they must manage their complicated identities while being plunged into a dangerous mystery among Egypt's great gods.
Moon Knight stars Oscar Isaac, Ethan Hawke, and May Calamawy. Mohamed Diab and the team of Justin Benson & Aaron Moorhead directed the episodes. Jeremy Slater is the head writer, and Kevin Feige, Louis D’Esposito, Victoria Alonso, Brad Winderbaum, Mohamed Diab, Jeremy Slater, and Oscar Isaac are the executive producers. Grant Curtis, Trevor Waterson, and Rebecca Kirsch serve as co-executive producers.
In the comics, Moon Knight is a violent character, who suffers from a dissociative identity disorder. Unlike other superheroes, Moon Knight is willing to brutally harm and injure his opponents and has even killed them by ripping off their faces or carving crescents on their foreheads.
Moon Knight's mental state has always cast doubt on his "Khonshu Powers and Abilities," as he is not always a reliable source. It has been speculated that he may be suffering from a magical sort of insanity. Marc Spector is well-versed in a variety of martial arts and hand-to-hand combat tactics. He is also an expert at interrogation, frequently employing military secret police torture methods.
