Moon Knight Trailer Reveals New Moon God Powers & Location

The new trailer for Marvel's Moon Knight shows off more of Moon God's powers as well as a new location. Moon Knight, which premieres on Disney+ on March 30, 2022, was created by Jeremy Slater with directing duties being split between Mohamed Diab and the duo of Justin Benson & Aaron Moorhead. The series stars Oscar Isaac, Ethan Hawke, F. Murray Abraham, May Calamawy, Lucy Thackeray, and the late Gaspard Ulliel, and will be the first live-action series in Phase 4 of the MCU to introduce a brand new lead hero.

The hero in question is the titular Moon Knight, though he doesn't always identify by that name. Moon Knight is but one facet of Oscar Isaac's character Steven Grant, a British shopkeeper who discovers he has dissociative identity disorder. One of his other primary personalities is the American mercenary Marc Spector, whose emergence begins to give Steven some trouble, but not as much as when he begins to channel the powers of the Egyptian Moon God Khonshu, becoming the nocturnal vigilante Moon Knight.

Today, Marvel dropped a brand new promo for Moon Knight. It's another 30-second ad spot akin to what they've been dropping periodically throughout the month, but unlike the other previous entries, it has a surprising amount of new footage. This footage includes a closer look at Ethan Hawke's cult leader character Arthur Harrow, as well as glimpses of what appears to be Khonshu's temple and a mid-transformation Moon Knight. Check out the teaser below:

The details are still fuzzy, as Marvel has proven their ability to keep tight-lipped about spoilers even when the trailers appear to show everything. However, this ad spot offers the closest glimpse yet at the character's relationship with the Moon God and how Khonshu's power becomes imbued within him. The shots of the character floating above a shimmering pool are both elegant and unsettling, highlighting the darker tone that Moon Knight will be adopting.

Although Spider-Man: No Way Home was continuing its epic theatrical run throughout the first quarter of the year, Moon Knight is the first official MCU project of 2022. As such, it will set the stage for what's to come, especially considering the ramifications of introducing another supernatural being to the universe. Whatever happens in Moon Knight will have a major ripple effect across the entire MCU, potentially tying in with the power source for Ms. Marvel as well as the multiverse of Doctor Strange 2, so it's a good thing that Marvel is doing their best to set it up properly.
