‘Moon Knight’ Drops New Trailer During Super Bowl


Our latest view of Marvel Studios’ Moon Knight has arrived, with the upcoming Disney Plus show featuring a trailer unveiled during Sunday’s Super Bowl. In January, the first trailer dropped during a different NFL playoff game, giving us our first real view of Oscar Isaac and Ethan Hawke in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

We meet Oscar Isaac as Steven Grant, one of Marc Spector’s alter egos before he gets a call when a woman calls him Marc. “Why did you call me Marc?” Asked Isaac in the clip. Later, Ethan Hawke’s Arthur Harrow claims to have “embrace the chaos” before Marc was encased in a Moon Knight suit. See below for the full video.

Marvel boss Kevin Feige recently described Moon Knight as quite brutal, and while the Super Bowl trailer still retains a lot of details about the show, it does an excellent job of expressing its dark sensibilities. As the first Moon Knight trailer, the new teaser keeps Marc’s circumstances of discovering his power a mystery, instead opting to give a few tantalizing peeks at him in full Moon Knight garb during major fight scenes. All in all, it puts viewers in the same position as Marc and Steven themselves as everyone tries to put together a complete picture.

It also features a few more shots of the mysterious character of Ethan Hawke, an antagonist who appears to be the mastermind of a cult. In one of the shots, Hawke depicts a moving tattoo he has of scale, a direct nod to the Egyptian god Anubis.

In any case, Hawke said he was based on the late head of the Branch Davidian cult.

Hawke once said on Seth Myers:

I’ve based my character on David Koresh. Yeah, so I mean, I guess it’s working. I totally wanted a Camero, you know? I want to ride in on a Camero. I can’t believe you, I mean, you’re good Seth. Or maybe I’m not out of character yet… I don’t know if we want to be on record saying that. But, I will say, he is the basis of great character inspiration however.

He further added:

Well, I heard about it from Oscar Isaac, who lives like, you know, three blocks down the street from me in Brooklyn. I was at a coffee shop. He came up to me, he’s like, ‘Hey, I really liked The Good Lord Bird.’ I was like ‘Hey, cool, I really like your work. You’re amazing.’ He’s like, ‘Hey, want to be in the Moon Knight with me?’ I was like, yeah. So, it happened the right way, you know?

Moon Knight premieres on Disney+ on March 30th.
