Moon Knight Featurette Reveals New Look at Marc Spector's Transformation
Marvel Studios released a new featurette for its upcoming Disney+ series Moon Knight, giving fans a new look at the character's transformation.
The clip sees Oscar Isaac's Marc Spector, eyes glowing white, slowly turning away from what appears to be a bus while Moon Knight's white robes materialize around him. What sets the clip apart from previous videos is that Marc appears to be summoning his crime-fighting persona at will. The show's previous trailers have suggested that Marc is often not in control of Moon Knight's arrival, suggesting that he's being forcibly possessed by the vengeful entity.
Within the same featurette, Marc is seen toppling down the side of a building before landing in a crouch as the mysterious Mr. Knight, a character previously confirmed to appear in the series. Fans were also treated to a better look at what is presumed to be Khonshu, the Egyptian god who grants Moon Knight his powers. Marc, Khonshu and an unknown third character are seen gazing in awe at an array of strange lights, which may be connected to Ethan Hawk's villainous Arthur Harrow.
Widely seen as one of the more obscure characters to receive a Marvel Cinematic Universe production, Moon Knight is expected to bring a more visceral, brutal experience to Disney's superhero world. "He's brutal," said Marvel Studios President Kevin Feiger. "It's been fun to work with Disney+ and see the boundaries shifting on what we're able to do. There are moments [in the series] when Moon Knight is wailing on another character, and it is loud and brutal, and the knee-jerk reaction is, 'We're gonna pull back on this, right?' No. We're not pulling back."
Whether his excessive violence limits the character's future appearance in upcoming MCU projects remains to be seen but showrunner Jeremy Slater hopes to see Marc Spector join The Avengers. "The honest answer is I don’t know [what's next for Moon Knight]," Slater said. "Because Kevin Feige is the guy who decides all that stuff. Look, if it was up to me, he would be part of the Avengers. It’s absolutely not up to me, but I think that is the goal!"
Moon Knight glides onto Disney+ on March 30.
