On one hand, Moon Knight attracts unbelievable powers, from super-healing to super-strength, due to the Egyptian lunar god. On the identical time, his psychological well being additional struggles as he does Khonshu’s (violent) bidding.
“We have fascination and reverence for Egyptian history, as does the world,” Marvel Studios president and Moon Knight government producer Kevin Feige mentioned in a manufacturing diary. “So, it was very exciting to take Moon Knight’s origin story, which is grounded in Egyptology, and infuse it with globetrotting adventure, intensity and mystery. The edgy, dark themes of Moon Knight and the exploration of the unique character add another dimension to the MCU’s storytelling.”
Moon Knight creator, head author and government producer Jeremy Slater (The Umbrella Academy) added: “At its heart, Moon Knight was designed as a mystery: Who is Steven Grant, and why does he keep dreaming about another life as a globe-trotting mercenary? And what happens when elements from those dreams start invading his waking hours? Steven’s journey for answers leads him to a hidden world of gods and monsters, and a battle that could shape the future of the MCU. Our team took a lot of inspiration from classic adventure films like Raiders of the Lost Ark, with the goal of telling a relentlessly entertaining story filled with unexpected twists and turns.”

Moon Knight forged
The brand new Marvel collection is led by Isaac as Steven Grant / Marc Spector / Moon Knight. Grant is a mild-mannered man who works on the Nationwide Artwork Gallery reward store in London. Owing to his psychological well being troubles, Grant shares his physique with former mercenary and Khonshu’s ruthless avatar Marc Spector.
“What’s so amazing about this character, and the mythology around it, is that it’s so rich,” Isaac mentioned. “Our job was to put a lens on the things that we found the most interesting or that had the most dramatic juice while taking the mental health aspect about it incredibly seriously. I really wanted to do a character study, a point of view experience, so you’re not sitting back and just watching the story unfold, you are within the eyes of Steven and experiencing this thing that’s happening to him. And it’s quite terrifying.”
Ethan Hawke — greatest recognized for Coaching Day and the Earlier than trilogy — performs the Moon Knight villain, cult chief and spiritual zealot Arthur Harrow, who’s obsessive about the Egyptian god Ammit.
“If you’re playing a villain you have to erase that word from your brain, and you have to see the universe from their point of view,” Hawke defined. “I find it really interesting when you think about cult leaders throughout history, those megalomaniacs very often start out extremely idealistic and then the idealism takes a hit or they compromise themselves in some way. Most people who commit terrible crimes in this world don’t wake up in the morning and say, ‘I’m the bad guy.’ They have their reasons, and [the road to] hell is paved with their reasons. So as an actor I had to come up with Harrow’s reasons and make them as rational and sane and compelling as possible.”
Might Calamawy (Ramy) steps into the MCU as archeologist Layla El-Faouly who can also be Spector’s spouse, Isaac has revealed in interviews. Calamawy mentioned: “She’s aware of Marc’s secrets with Khonshu but she’s discovering other secrets as the audience is also discovering them. So we meet her at a point where her partner has disappeared for several months and when she sees him again, she’s meeting a different person, Steven.”
“The most fulfilling aspect of making Moon Knight for us was working with Oscar Isaac, May Calamawy and Ethan Hawke,” administrators Benson and Moorhead mentioned. “To witness Oscar’s perfectionism firsthand was an honour, to see May bring so much heart and humanity to this story was inspiring, and to learn from the wisdom, work ethic and performance mastery of Ethan Hawke everyday was an experience we’d only ever dreamed of.”

Past that, we have now the late Gaspard Ulliel (Saint Laurent) as an Egypt-based antiques collector Anton Mogart, Lucy Thackeray (Surge) as Grant’s boss Donna, Rey Lucas (The First) as Spector’s father Elias Spector, and Fernanda Andrade (The Satan Inside) as Marc’s mom Wendy Spector.

Moon Knight season 2?
“I dream and wish for a film,” Moon Knight director Diab said when requested concerning the future. “But with Marvel, the way they play it, it’s not like you graduate into a film. You can go into a film and come to a TV show and go back … It’s like a crazy world. Even with the successful shows, like WandaVision, they’re not doing season 2. She jumped into a film. Maybe she’s going to come back or not. I don’t know. And that’s exciting.”
The director added, “But I can tell you for a fact, I can see [Moon Knight] in the next 10 years, not just the next film. He’s a very interesting character. He’s probably the most interesting character for any actor to play. Oscar is doing a great job. People already like him, even from the trailer. I think the show’s going to resonate with people, so I see him staying for a long time.”
That is greater than what Hawke offered when he was requested about Moon Knight season 2: “The good news is that it’s possibly both. [Moon Knight] lives and breathes on its own merits. It functions as a limited series — and if people are engaged and excited by it then it could be the origin story of a larger thing.”
