The Moon Knight Series, which will premiere on Disney+ has sign on Justin Benson and Aaron Moorhead to helm several episodes. The Indie directors will collaborate with Mohamed Diab for the treatment of Moon Knight, which will see Oscar Isaac in the lead role.
The upcoming series is based on the comic book character, which Marvel first introduced in 1975. Isaac will lead the series as Marc Spector, a former mercenary who becomes a conduit for an Egyptian deity. Granted superhuman abilities, Spector becomes Moon Knight, a crime fighting superhero.
Although not as mainstream as other Marvel
heroes, Moon Knight does have a cult
following. The character also led his own Marvel comic book tit le in the
1980s. The new series is one of many
small screen Marvel projects lined-up for Disney+.
Based on the popularity as well as success of
the series, we may well see Moon Knight
make the leap across other Marvel Disney+ series. The character may quite
possibly the big screen too sometime in the near future.
