‘Knight of the Moon‘ is the first series of Marvel Studios to accompany a character disconnected from everything we’ve seen in the MCU so far.
However, that may change after the attraction debuts…
During an interview for the SFX Magazine (via Gamesradar)the director Mohamed Diab stated that the character played by oscar isaac could be essential for the next 10 years of the MCU.
“I can say with absolute certainty that we are going to see him in the next 10 years of the MCU, not just in an upcoming movie. He’s a very interesting character and probably the most interesting character an actor could play. Oscar is doing a great job. People already liked him in the trailer. I think the series will have a great reception from the audience, so I imagine it will be around for quite a while.”
For now, the whole aura behind the character and his mission is still a big mystery.
So we just have to wait to find out how ‘Knight of the Moon‘ will fit into the MCU.
So, are you curious?
Recalling that the series arrives in the catalog of Disney+ in March 30th.
In the comics, the character has multiple personalities, with that of mercenary Marc Spector being the main one.
However, the synopsis points out that Isaac will mostly play Steven Grant.
“The series follows Steven Grant, a gift shop employee who is plagued by blackouts and memories of another life. Steven discovers he has dissociative identity disorder and shares a body with mercenary Marc Spector. As Steven/Marc’s enemies close in on them, they must navigate their complex identities as they delve into a deadly mystery among the mighty gods of Egypt.”
The cast also has Ethan Hawke (‘The Entity’) and May Calamawy (‘Frames’).
Aaron Moorhead e Justin Benson (‘Synchronic’) will direct the series, from scripts written by Jeremy Slate (‘Umbrella Academy’).
