With The Book of Boba having just ended, it's now Marvel Studios' turn in the rotation. However, there's quite a gap until its next project: Moon Knight. The series isn't set to air until March 30 of this year, but if the first trailer is any indication, it's certainly going to be worth the wait. The series sees Oscar Isaac's Steven Grant become entangled in his broken psyche as he deals with existential questions, including the possibility of being granted superpowers from the Egyptian Moon God Khonshu.
It certainly seems like it's going to be a trippy series. Not only that, but if rumors are to be believed, the experience will also be a brutal one. Look no further than that intense bathroom beatdown viewers saw in the debut teaser.
The character suffers from a dissociative identity disorder. So, while the series will start with Isaac as Steven Grant, part of his journey will include juggling his other personas and trying to get his footing in reality. It's the Marc Spector part of himself he's going to have to worry about—that's the one who goes around in a fancy superhero outfit.
While the initial footage showed off the titular character's entire costume, now fans have an even better look at it thanks to some new magazine covers.
Moon Knight is Here
Two brand-new Empire magazine covers have been released, with Marvel Studios' Moon Knight being front and center. Both images feature Oscar Isaac's titular hero in all his glory.
The first shows the clearest look yet at Moon Knight's mummified-inspired costume, with his bright white eyes and bloodied knuckles on display:
The second shows the hero in a stern stance, with the Sun God Ra behind him; perhaps alluding to the Sun God being a hidden villain in the show?
The Fist of Khonshu Is Here
The wait until the end of March won't be an easy one. But it certainly isn't made easier by witnessing these beautiful images of the hero's costume. It's undoubtedly one of the best that Marvel Studios has ever produced.
In the first teaser, it is shown that Moon Knight's costume is supernaturally based and not something the hero made with a sewing machine; but then again, viewers won't be able to take everything they see at face value, so maybe it's the imagination of a broken man.
The Egyptian themes of the show are also wonderfully woven into the design. The hero's presence is terrifying, which will give him the advantage in any fight.
Moon Knight will be streaming on March 30, 2022, exclusively on Disney+.
