An excellent fan trailer for Marvel and Disney+'s Moon Knight series depicts Marc Spector's origin story with Oscar Isaac in the lead.
A new Moon Knight fan trailer imagines what the Marvel Disney+ show could look like with Oscar Isaac in the lead. Moon Knight is set to be one of the many MCU-set shows heading to the streaming service, and one of the few to feature a brand new character as its lead. While several of the Disney+ shows will center on established MCU heroes like Wanda Maximoff (Elizabeth Olsen) and Loki (Tom Hiddleston), there will be some primed to introduce new ones to the universe. In addition to Moon Knight, there will be She-Hulk and Ms. Marvel emerging over the next few years.
For some time, little was known about Moon Knight, but in recent months more progress has been made. Last month, news broke that Oscar Isaac will reportedly play Moon Knight for the MCU, starting with his Disney+ series. Overall, the response to Isaac's casting was favorable, as many are interested in seeing the former Star Wars actor join the Marvel universe. As Marc Spector, Isaac will be a new kind of MCU hero that fans are excited to see come to life. In lieu of actual images and footage, some have created fanworks to show what Isaac could look like within the MCU.
This latest piece is a trailer from solyentbrak1, and it brings Moon Knight to vivid life. With Isaac as the lead, this Moon Knight takes on a dark and mysterious tone that seems especially fitting for the character. The imagined supporting cast is filled out by those like The Boys' Tomer Capon (standing in, fittingly, for Marc's friend Frenchie) and Annabelle Wallis (as Marlene Alraune). Actual MCU star Djimon Hounsou also makes some appearances, though not as his character Korath. Check out the fan trailer down below.
The Moon Knight trailer brings Marc's origin story to life, in which he participated in a mission in Egypt that nearly killed him before the god Khonshu gave him new life and powers. It also addresses Marc's multiple personalities, with different Isaac roles filling in each part. If the actual Disney+ show chooses to strike the same tone as the fan trailer, Moon Knight could be a new kind of MCU project, in that it strikes a grittier and darker tone than most. In fact, it would almost feel at home among the Marvel Netflix shows.
This fan trailer also shows the potential that Moon Knight has. Marc is an incredibly fascinating character, and with a performer like Isaac behind him, he can become one of the MCU's best figures. It remains to be seen how the Disney+ series will choose to bring Marc to life, but there's a lot of anticipation surrounding it. It isn't clear as to when fans can expect to see Moon Knight debut on Disney+, but hopefully more information will emerge soon.
