Moon Knight is arriving on Disney+ very soon, and fans of the MCU are gaga all over the world. The new Marvel series is a subject of much excitement and anticipation among the fans since it’s set to usher the Marvel universe into a new era of more edgy and dark themes and tones. Based on the comic book character of the same name, Moon Knight has quickly become a popular figure already. Before we talk about the release time of Moon Knight, let’s delve briefly into what the series is all about.

There are rumors that Blade will make an appearance in the show, but all that’s just speculation at this point.

Who Stars In The Show?
Oscar Isaac leads the main cast as the titular superhero who also suffers from Disassociative Identity Disorder. One of his identities is that of Steven Grant, a museum gift-shop employee in the UK. He’s a regular, kind of meek guy with frequent episodes of blackouts. He also keeps having visions of his other life. His other identity is that of an American mercenary who goes by the name of Marc Spector. The third persona is that of Mr. Knight when Grant transforms into Egyptian God Khonshu’s Avatar.
Ethan Hawke stars opposite Isaac as the lead antagonist, Arthur Harrow. He plays a religious zealot and leader of the cult worshipping the god Ammit. The main cast also includes May Calamawy, who plays Layla El-Faouly. She’s an archaeologist who embarked on adventures with Spector in the past. However, Grant doesn’t have any memories of her or his other identity’s past life. F.Murray Abraham voices the Egyptian moon god Khonshu.
Mohamed Diab, Justin Benson, and Aaron Moorhead serve as directors for different episodes throughout the first season. The writing table for the premiere season includes Michael Kastelein, Beau DeMayo, Jeremy Slater, Sabir Pirzada, Alex Meenehan, Peter Cameron, Rebecca Kirsch, Danielle Iman, and Matthew Orton.
