One video not only gives fans the best look yet at Moon Knight’s versatile and dramatic cape, but a nice tease of one of the supporting characters, Layla El-Faouly (played by May Calamawy).
The six-episode Moon Knight series–created and written by Jeremy Slater–stars Oscar Isaac as the enigmatic anti-hero, Ethan Hawke as bad guy Arthur Harrow, Gaspard Ulliel as Anton Mogart (Midnight Man) and Calamawy.
The storyline follows Steven Grant, who is plagued by “blackouts and memories of another life,” according to the logline. Grant discovers he has dissociative identity disorder “and actually shares his body with mercenary Marc Spector.”
Moving forward, Grant must “navigate his complex identities while he’s thrust into a deadly mystery among the powerful gods of Egypt.”
Interestingly, Isaac said in a recent interview that he went into this project not knowing anything about the lead character. “I’d never heard of Moon Knight before,” the actor said, “and I collected comics when I was younger.”
But, the overall process of making the series put Isaac at ease. “There was a lot of room to try stuff,” he said, “because there wasn’t the pressure of making sure we made hundreds of millions of dollars on the opening weekend.”
So, Isaac added, “we could make it very point-of-view. We could make very weird decisions. At the moment, it feels like that’s where more of the risk is being taken, because it can financially.”
The Marvel Comics Moon Knight character–created by writer Doug Moench and artist Don Perlin–made his first appearance in Marvel Spotlight No. 32 back in 1975.
