Oh, hi Marc.
A new image shows Oscar Isaac becoming Moon Knight for the upcoming series from Marvel Studios set to debut on Disney Plus.
When it was announced that Oscar Isaac will star in Moon Knight, fans instantly wondered which version of the hero the Disney Plus series will primarily focus on. Since Marc Spector takes on multiple identities there’s obviously plenty of scope for Isaac to explore different aspects of his personality, but there’s also a number of different classic looks for the hero from throughout his years appearing in the comics. From the classic silver armor, all the way up to the suave Mr. Knight tailored suit, there’s a lot of potential for the Disney Plus series.
But a new concept design from ‘ultraraw26’ imagines how the Moon Knight costume could be translated into live-action. Instead of just sticking him in a typical militaristic costume, this design gives Oscar Isaac an impressive suit of plated armor that feels like if Marvel Studios tackled the Assassin’s Creed franchise. The intricate design also looks like it uses the Seal of the Vishanti on his belt, which is also the symbol commonly associated with Doctor Strange, which is an interesting tie to the mystical side of Moon Knight. Take a look at Oscar Isaac suited up for the Disney Plus series below.
What do you make of the Moon Knight design? Are you excited to see what Oscar Isaac does with the role of Marc Spector? Which Disney Plus series are you most excited for? Sound-off in the comments below!
In the comics, Marc Spector, a.k.a. Moon Knight, was a CIA agent-turned-mercenary making millions. His wealth from being a mercenary and investments land him anywhere between $50 million to $3 billion in net worth, granting him a suave Bruce Wayne-style life. Yet during his last mercenary job in Cairo, Spector was left for dead by a former colleague.
Spector dragged himself through the sands of the desert to the tomb of Konshu, the Egyptian moon god. There he was pronounced dead but resurrected at the hands of Konshu. The resurrection took a toll, however, as he developed multiple personality disorder. When he returned to New York, he created two new personalities — Steven Grant and Jake Lockley. Grant was the millionaire womanizer while Lockley was a cab driver.
It was after developing his other personalities when he took on the mantle of Moon Knight. Konshu granted Spector with increased physical capabilities and periodic prophetic visions at night, yet even Spector himself was unsure whether Konshu was yet another personality of his own creation. Even still, Moon Knight operates with an arsenal of technology, vehicles, and costumes to suit his needs.
