We start off with Steven Grant, an ordinary British gift shop employee who’s been plagued by weird visions/nightmares/flashes of another life. Turns out, those visions are real, and they belong to Marc Spector, a mercenary who shares Grant’s body — Marvel pins it on dissociative identity disorder, also known as multiple personality disorder. (So we won’t spend all six episodes with Isaac’s Michael Caine-esque accent.)
Who’s Ethan Hawke playing?
What’s the Egypt connection?
It’s likely not a coincidence that Moon Knight’s costume in the series wraps around him like linen around a mummified body.
We also know the great F. Murray Abraham is voicing Khonshu in the series, so we’ll likely get a version of this origin story.
Who’s working behind the scenes?
The entire series is directed by Mohamed Diab, an Egyptian filmmaker whose previous films have been set in Egypt and focused on social issues like sexual harassment or the 2011 Egyptian revolution. Jeremy Slater is the series’ showrunner, and he developed the superhero series “The Umbrella Academy” and penned the screenplay for a “Fantastic Four” reboot that was less than well-received.
