‘Moon Knight’ Trailer Shows Oscar Isaac Embracing Chaos

Isaac stars as Marc Spector, a former U.S. Marine (at least in the comics) who suffers from Dissociative Identity Disorder (DID) who becomes imbued with the powers of the Egyptian moon god Khonshu, leading to him donning the moniker Moon Knight and becoming a vigilante. 

Ethan Hawke stars opposite Isaac as his advisory, whose identity has not yet been revealed. 

Last year Hawke explained that he had based his character on David Koresh, the head of the Branch Davidians that led the infamous siege on Waco, Texas. 

Moon Knight made his first comic book appearance in a 1975 issue of Werewolf By Night when he was hired to capture a werewolf named Jack Russell. 

The series has been met with some criticism ahead of its release, particularly with Isaac's casting. In the comics, an integral part of Spector's character is that he is Jewish and the son of a rabbi and a Holocaust survivor. 

Additionally, there are a lot of questions left unanswered about how the series will tackle Spector's DID and how they will handle the influence of the Egyptian god Khonshu.
