What is Moon Knight about?

As per Marvel, Moon Knight series follows Steven Grant (Oscar Isaac), a mild-mannered gift-shop employee, who becomes plagued with blackouts and memories of another life. 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.

In some of the shots, we see that Steven is hallucinating and is plagued by visions, which may or may not be true. The teaser has raised the expectations of the audience and Oscar may be the perfect choice for the role.   

Moon Knight villain

Played by Ethan Hawke, the main villain of the series will be named Arthur Harrow. The trailer projects him as a sort of a cult leader with followers bowing down at his feet. More villains and dangers may be in store for Moon Knight in the series.

He will also be deadly at hand-to-hand combat. In the closing scenes of the trailer, Moon Knight is seen jumping off buildings. 

Moon Knight costume

The superhero suit of Moon Knight has a mummy-like quality to it, as seen in the transformation sequence. It wraps around like bandages on the body of Steven. It will tie the show with Egyptian culture and mythology.
