Phase 4 of the Marvel Cinematic Universe is here and, as you might know it, it relies heavily not only on new films but also on TV shows for streaming platform Disney+. One of the most anticipated projects is ‘Moon Knight’, starring Oscar Isaac and which will being released soon.
The series revolves around Moon Knight, aka Steven Grant, who is a vigilante who suffers from dissociative identity disorder (DID). TMoon Knight and Grant aren't his only personalities, as he also can be Marc Specter and Mr. Knight. The first trailer of the show dropped on January 17, and it seems like the series will follow the darker path that Marvel has set for this Phase 4.

Alongside Isaac, the series will have Ethan Hawke as the antagonist. Here, check out more about this show such as the release date, entire cast and plot.
