It is a rather peculiar uniform, not only because it is entirely white. Compared to the costume of the comics, that of the series will in fact be composed of bandages, like a mummy: a clear reference to the Egyptian god Khonshu , who confers powers on Marc . Among other things, in the trailer we saw that the costume has a mystical origin, and materializes around the body of the protagonist.

I remind you that in recent days the nice reaction to the trailer by Oscar Isaac and Ethan Hawke (aka Arthur Harrow , antagonist of the series) has also been published. The premiere is scheduled for March 30 on Disney + . You will find the promo art below.

The synopsis

The series follows Steven Grant, a quiet employee of a gift shop, who is struck by memory lapses and memories from another life. Steven discovers he has dissociative identity disorder and shares his body with mercenary Marc Spector. As Steven / Marc’s enemies approach, the two must investigate their complex identities as they delve into a deadly mystery among the mighty gods of Egypt.

Moon Knight

Moon Knight is a vigilante created by Doug Moench (lyrics) and Don Perlin (drawings) on Werewolf by Night (first series) n. 32, released in August 1975. Under the mask hides Marc Spector , a former marine who starts working for the mercenary Raoul Bushman , but leaves him dying during an expedition to Egypt. The locals save him and bring him in front of the statue of the god Khonshu , who appears to him in a vision and asks him to become a warrior on Earth. Thus was born Moon Knight , superhero equipped with numerous gadgets invented by Spector, whose physical abilities increase to a superhuman level during the night.

Over the years, Spector suffers a psychic breakdown that leads him to suffer from depression, while Khonshu ‘s visions – perhaps due to his mental state – continue to haunt him. It also becomes much more brutal than in the beginning, and does not hesitate to kill the criminals.
