Oscar Isaac Transforms into the Sleepless Moon Knight in First Trailer for Marvel's New Series

·2-min read

Hello, and welcome to staying awake... and setting your calendars for March 30, when the latest Marvel Studios series, Moon Knight, hits Disney+.

The first official trailer for the hotly anticipated new series was released on Monday night, starring Oscar Isaac as Marvel's mysterious new superhero.

The clip introduces Steven Grant (Isaac), a museum gift shop employee plagued with blackouts and strange memories. He says has "a sleeping disorder" and "can't tell the difference between waking life and dreams."

One night in the museum, he discovers a hidden key and old flip phone that's ringing. "Oh my god, you're alive!" the woman on the other end of the phone shouts. "What's wrong with you, Marc?"

Marc, it seems, is Marc Spector, a mercenary. According to Marvel's description, "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 among the powerful gods of Egypt. "

"Embrace the chaos," he adds.

Also on Monday night, Marvel Studios' official Twitter account unveiled the first poster image for the series, showing details from Moon Knight's costume and weapon of choice (resembling a crescent moon).
