Disney+ dropped the first trailer of its upcoming Marvel series, Moon Knight alongside an official release date

The first trailer for Marvel Studios’ upcoming series, Moon Knight has just been revealed. The Disney+ series will kick start the 2022 slate of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

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

In the trailer, Steven struggles to differentiate between his normal life and his dreams, a constant theme that was first revealed in the teaser. He plays with a Rubik’s Cube, unable to fall asleep. Then, he suddenly wakes up in a panic and finds himself chained to his bed.

Later, he starts seeing visions of the Egyptian moon god, Khonshu which seemingly merges with his reality. There’s also a voiceover of him saying, “I can’t tell the difference between life and dreams”. Then, he visits a museum exhibiting Egyptian artworks and sculptures, further showing his connection to the Moon god.

He answers a call from someone who referred to him as Marc to which he replies, “Why did you call me, Marc?” highlighting his order identity. He meets Ethan Hawke’s villain character, a cult leader who encourages Marc to embrace the “chaos” in him.
