Marvel Studios’ next upcoming series, Moon Knight, will finally make its way to Disney+ next Wednesday. Ahead of the premiere, another new clip from the show has been released.
Moon Knight follows Steven Grant (portrayed by Oscar Isaac), a mild-mannered man who lives a mundane life, plagued by blackouts and mysterious memories of a life somehow separate from his own. After one fateful encounter, Steven discovers that he has Dissociative Identity Disorder and shares a body with Marc Spector — a former mercenary and the ruthless avatar of Khonshu (voiced by F. Murray Abraham), the Egyptian god of the moon and vengeance. With their enemies converging upon them, Steven must learn how to adapt to this revelation and work with Marc. With other godly motives at play, the two must navigate their complex identities amid a deadly battle played out among the powerful gods of Egypt.
The series also stars Ethan Hawke, who will portray the nefarious yet philosophical cult-like leader Arthur Harrow, and May Calamawy, who will appear as Layla El-Faouly, an archeologist and adventurer.
Watch the new clip below.
In the clip, it appears that Steven and Layla have run into some issues with Arthur and his followers. Layla encourages Steven to “summon the suit,” but he clearly has no idea what she’s asking him to do. Meanwhile, Arthur’s nefarious plans are at work as something monstrous begins to crawl out of a hole in the floor.
Moon Knight is executive produced by Kevin Feige, Louis D’Esposito, Victoria Alonso, Brad Winderbaum, Grant Curtis, Oscar Isaac, Mohamed Diab, and Jeremy Slater, with Trevor Waterson and Rebecca Kirsch serving as co-executive producers. Directors for the six-episode series include Mohamed Diab and the team of Justin Benson and Aaron Moorhead.
