Marvel’s Moon Knight is coming to screens and here is everything you need to know about the Disney Plus series.
Of all the upcoming Marvel Studios shows on Disney Plus, Moon Knight is undoubtedly the most mysterious. Based on the Marvel Comics character of the same name, it will bring the brooding hero to the screen for the first time ever, and better yet, as part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
The MCU shows have become a big part of the Disney Plus line-up, with WandaVision, The Falcon and the Winter Soldier, Loki and What If…? all entertaining fans throughout the year (with upcoming installments Hawkeye, Ms. Marvel, She-Hulk and, of course, Moon Knight generating plenty of excitement too).
But what do we know about the Oscar Isaac-led series? When is it coming to Disney+ and will it be the next one to make its presence felt after Hawkeye‘s arrival at the end of the year?
Below, you’ll find all the up-to-date information you need about Moon Knight, its premiere on Disney Plus, its cast, any trailers and more.
Moon Knight release date
Moon Knight will be released on March 30, 2022. There had been speculation that Moon Knight will be the first of the Disney Plus shows to premiere this year, and this was confirmed to be the case when the release date was revealed just before the trailer was released.
Moon Knight cast
Like essentially everything else about the show, Moon Knight‘s cast details have been pretty much kept under wraps. We do know that Oscar Isaac will be playing the titular hero, Ethan Hawke will be playing the villain of the piece and that May Calamawy has been cast in an undisclosed role but that’s about it.
As of writing, this is the cast listing for the upcoming MCU series:
- Oscar Isaac – Marc Spector/Moon Knight
- Ethan Hawke – Arthur Harrow
- May Calamawy – Unknown

What is Moon Knight about?
No official synopsis has been released by Disney Plus as of yet, so the show remains Marvel’s most mysterious project on the horizon. However, we can piece together its premise just because of the source material that inspired it.
Isaac’s character, Marc Spector, is a former CIA Agent whose life is saved by the Moon God, Khonsu. Upon resurrection as the “moon’s knight”, Spector decides to atone for his sins as a mercenary and protect people as the supernatural vigilante crimefighter known as Moon Knight.
The first look of the suit that Oscar Isaac might wear may have been leaked earlier this year, but it’s still unclear as to whether it was actually from the show or an incredible fan’s design.
