Although we don’t have any concrete details of what the series will be about or what the Star Wars star will bring to the series, here’s what Marvel has to say about the character that is Moon Knight:

Born to a respectable family, but eschewing its history and beliefs Marc Spector cut his own path through life by becoming a boxer, a Marine, and finally a CIA operative. Disgusted by the organizations practices and hurt by his own brother Randall’s betrayal, Spector ejected whatever morals he still possessed and fell into mercenary work around the globe.

Struggling with multiple personalities and amoral inclinations, Marc Spector fights on against all odds as the cloaked avenger Moon Knight.

With what we’ve learned so far about this character’s origins, we can definitely see why Marvel would want to bring this to viewers on Disney+. And with Oscar Isaac at the forefront, we’re excited to see how Marvel’s Moon Knight will all comes together!
