As the premiere date for Moon Knight approaches, Marvel Studios is going full steam ahead with its promotions. The studio has just revealed the latest teaser trailer, titled “Protect,” a week prior to the series’ release on Disney Plus. If fans were wondering how Oscar Isaac's character transforms into the masked hero, this latest teaser trailer has some answers, and more.
The minute-long trailer was posted on Marvel's social media channels, and is mainly focused on the multiple personalities that Isaac portrays in the much-awaited series. From Steven Grant to Marc Spector, and all the way to the hero Moon Knight, the teaser trailer sort of follows Isaac's transformation, including his appearance and accent. It is interesting to see him portray the different personas within such a short span of time.
The Moon Knight trailer begins with Grant and Spector coming face-to-face, with the latter admitting that the entire scenario might seem confusing. The scene then shifts to Spector suddenly transforming into the masked hero that fans have been waiting to see in action. May Calamawy's Layla El-Faouly is the first to notice that he “looks different,” and she isn’t wrong considering he was human one second, and a terrifying vigilante with crescent darts the next.
The next few scenes in the Moon Knight trailer see Isaac's different personas intertwined with one another. Grant's voiceover talks about how he is unable to tell the difference between his “waking life and dreams.” The highlight of the trailer is definitely watching Moon Knight fighting a bunch of goons, all while using his trademark weapons and cape to protect Calamawy's El-Faouly.
Not only does the trailer promise an action-packed series, but a theme of darkness and horror is established, similar to the previously released trailers and clips. One Moon Knight clip of Isaac's Grant meeting Khonshu, the terrifying Egyptian god, has already been revealed, and it will play on fans’ fear of dark hallways. It has previously been revealed that Moon Knight will be different from the typical content in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, as it will focus more on fear and possibly even some jump scares.
Apart from Isaac and Calamawy, Moon Knight features Ethan Hawke as Arthur Harrow, who will be involved in summoning creatures from potentially another universe to Grant's hometown. While dealing with his dissociative identity disorder, the protagonist will be seen struggling with “memories of another life,” and dealing with a personality that he doesn’t seem to have any control over.
Moon Knight premieres on Disney Plus on March 30, 2022.
