Marvel dropped the “world trailer premiere” for its coming Moon Knight series during the Rams-Cardinals wild card game on ESPN and ABC tonight. In addition to some cool new footage, the spot revealed the series will premiere on Disney+ on March 30.
“I can’t tell the difference between my waking life and dreams,” says Oscar Issac — sporting a legit British accent — as Steven Grant during the trailer.
The series follows Grant, a mild-mannered gift-shop employee, as he becomes plagued with blackouts and memories of another life. Steven 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 involving the powerful gods of Egypt.
That certainly seems to be the case as the footage reveals an increasingly disjointed reality for the character until we hear Ethan Hawke’s baddie encourage Steven/Marc to “embrace the chaos,” at which point we see the character’s transformation into the menacing Egypt-powered superhero after which the film is named.
