The latest episode of Marvel Studios: Assembled has arrived on Disney+, ready to take viewers behind the scenes of Moon Knight.

Moon Knight stars Oscar Isaac as Steven Grant. When Steven, a mild-mannered gift-shop employee, becomes plagued with blackouts and memories of another life, he discovers he has dissociative identity disorder and shares a body with mercenary Marc Spector. As Steven/Marc’s enemies converge upon them, they must navigate their complex identities while thrust into a deadly mystery among the powerful gods of Egypt.

The series also stars Ethan Hawke, May Calamawy, and F. Murray Abraham.

The synopsis for the hour-long special is as follows:

Join the likes of Oscar Isaac and Ethan Hawke as they reveal how Marvel Studios’ ‘Moon Knight’ was painstakingly brought to life. Through insightful interviews with cast and crew, along with immersive footage from the set, ‘Assembled’ pulls back the curtain on this innovative and groundbreaking series. Revisit the caped character’s comic book origins, and hear how the show’s creative team adapted particular elements to craft ‘Moon Knight’s mind-bending narrative. Explore with Oscar Isaac his approach to portraying dual personalities housed inside the same body, and witness the care that was taken to address mental health issues in a respectful, meaningful way. Tour the production’s massive and intricately designed sets, which also served to reinforce a major theme of the show: ancient Egyptian mythology. Meet May Calamawy who, with this series, has the distinction of playing the MCU’s first Egyptian superhero: The Scarlet Scarab. Additionally, this installment of ‘Assembled’ incorporates a unique “roundtable discussion” with ‘Moon Knight’s directors, who serve up even more candid conversation about their inspired work on the epic project.
