Kevin Feige teases “brutal” edge to Marvel’s Moon Knight’

"This is a different thing. This is Moon Knight"

Marvel boss Kevin Feige has described upcoming Disney+ series Moon Knight as “brutal” and a show that sees “the boundaries shifting on what we’re able to do.”

A first look at the upcoming Disney+ series, which sees Oscar Isaac play the titular role of Marc Spector, “a mercenary who has numerous alter egos”, arrived in a trailer last month. The show will debut on Disney+ on March 30.

“He’s brutal,” Feige told Empire of Spector, adding: “It’s been fun to work with Disney+ and see the boundaries shifting on what we’re able to do. There are moments [in the series] when Moon Knight is wailing on another character, and it is loud and brutal, and the knee-jerk reaction is, ‘We’re gonna pull back on this, right?’

“No. We’re not pulling back. There’s a tonal shift. This is a different thing. This is Moon Knight.”

The recent trailer shows Isaac’s character as he deals with a sleeping disorder and struggles to tell the difference between real life and nightmares. The trailer slowly builds as he “embraces the chaos” and adopts the Moon Knight persona. Check it out below.

Among Spector’s alter egos are driver Jake Lockley and millionaire Steven Grant, while he also acts as a conduit for the Egyptian moon god Khonshu.

Moon Knight is also set to star Ethan Hawke as the series’ main villain – who appears briefly in the trailer – while Ramy‘s May Calamawy will also appear.

Alongside the series’ first look a few months ago, Marvel also gave fans a look at the anticipated series She-Hulk, which will star Tatiana Maslany as the titular character Jennifer Walters, while Mark Ruffalo will return as Bruce Banner/The Hulk. The series will also star Jameela Jamil as supervillain Titania.
