2022 is shaping up to be yet another massive year for the Marvel Cinematic Universe. While new films are on the way, the MCU will expand its presence on Disney Plus with original series introducing new characters. One of those characters is Moon Knight, who will be portrayed by Oscar Isaac.
Production on Moon Knight is underway, and the new series is shaping up to be one of the more exciting new projects from the MCU. With Oscar Isaac playing Marc Spector, it’s exciting to see him join a new Marvel project after what was a disappointing experience on X-Men: Apocalypse.
This design from artist Mizuri on Instagram gives us a look at how Oscar Isaac could look like as Moon Knight. It certainly looks sleek, and Oscar Isaac fits in it quite well. You can check it out down below:
In the comics, Marc Spector, a.k.a. Moon Knight, was a CIA agent-turned-mercenary making millions. During his last mercenary job in Cairo, Spector was left for dead by a former colleague.
Spector dragged himself through the sands of the desert to the tomb of Konshu, the Egyptian moon god. There he was pronounced dead but resurrected at the hands of Konshu. The resurrection took a toll, however, as he developed multiple personality disorder. When he returned to New York, he created two new personalities — Steven Grant and Jake Lockley. Grant was the millionaire womanizer while Lockley was a cab driver.
It was after developing his other personalities when he took on the mantle of Moon Knight. Konshu granted Spector with increased physical capabilities and periodic prophetic visions at night, yet even Spector himself was unsure whether Konshu was yet another personality of his own creation. Even still, Moon Knight operates with an arsenal of technology, vehicles, and costumes to suit his needs.
