The fans are excited to see what Oscar Isaac and Ethan Hawke have in store for us to offer. It’ll be exciting to see the duo coming together for such a project. Not much is known about the plot. But one thing is clear, the titular character suffers from Dissociative identity disorder (a psychological condition where the person has multiple personalities).
The teaser trailer provides us with fresh footage of the series. We can see Ethan Hawke, the villain of the series. But not much is known of him. But he does say that Marc has a lot of chaos going on in him. We can also see Oscar Isaac (playing Marc Spector a.k.a Moon Knight) in the teaser trailer. Moreover, we get a better glimpse of Moon Knight’s costume.
Who is Moon Knight?
Moon Knight’s history is long as well as complicated. But we’ll make it short for you! Who is Moon Knight? Well, by this time, it must be clear to you that the character himself is struggling to understand who he is since he suffers from a psychological disorder. However, he does have some history. Moon Knight is Marvel’s most high-profile character to have survived with mental illness.
Marc Spector is a mercenary who was hired to protect an archaeological dig. But he was betrayed by Raoul Bushman, his employer. As Bushman plans to rob the treasures, Marc was left to die. However, he was given a second chance at life by the ancient Egyptian moon god Khonshu. Not only was he given a second life, but he also got superpowers. But, Marc had to give something in return. He had to agree to become Moon Knight- the earthbound agent Khonshu’s will. With his newfound powers, he starts to live many lives. But soon these personalities started taking upon him. This is how he started to develop the disorder. His different personalities are actual aspects of Marc’s personality and mind.
Is Moon Knight Marvel’s Batman?
Well, Marvel’s Moon Knight and DC’s Batman have a lot in common, so much so, that fans have started to call Moon Knight Marvel’s Batman. But are they the same?
Both the characters have almost identical powers. But, there’s one thing that differs. That is the “no-kill” rule. Batman has the no-kill rule. But Moon Knight kills whoever he wants, whenever he wants.
So, in conclusion, Moon Knight is not Marvel’s Batman. He is different. He has a personality and choices of his own.
