‘Moon Knight’: Everything You Need to Know About Disney and Marvel’s Latest TV Series

Disney and Marvel's upcoming series "Moon Knight" stars Oscar Isaac — that may be all you need to know, but we've got more details anyway.

Oscar Isaac

“Moon Knight”


August of 2019 seems like a lifetime ago, but it was then that audiences first heard that the new Disney+ streaming service would be home to a host of original television shows boasting their favorite Marvel characters. In front of an enthusiastic audience at the D23 Expo that year, alongside the likes of “WandaVision” and “The Falcon and the Winter Soldier,” it was announced that Disney+ would premiere “Moon Knight.”

Because of the pandemic, the show struggled to get moving before Oscar Isaac was announced to play Marc Spector, the man who becomes Moon Knight. Isaac is no stranger to the Disney world, having played Poe Dameron in three of Disney’s recent “Star Wars” movies and makes his Marvel debut with the show. “Moon Knight” comes from Mohamed Diab and “The Endless” and “Synchronic” filmmakers Justin Benson and Aaron Moorhead. Ethan Hawke, most recently of “The Good Lord Bird,” is playing the villain, and May Calamawy, best known for her breakout supporting turn on Hulu’s “Ramy,” co-stars.

Originally debuting in 1975, the character was created by Doug Moench and Don Perlin and may not be an A-list name alongside that of Captain America or Thor, but has a cult following of his own. Once Isaac was announced, the rest of the supporting cast started to round things out. A trailer dropped just a month ago and now the series is ready to premiere March 30.

IndieWire has compiled all the information you need to know to enjoy “Moon Knight” when it debuts.
