According to what has been determined so far, Moon Knight will begin filming in March in Budapest, the capital of Hungary. The episodes will be directed by filmmakers Mohamed Diab, Justin Benson and Aaron Moorhead, with photography by Gregory Middleton.
Oscar Isaac must play the protagonist Marc Spector, a mercenary who is able to take on his various alter egos for having a dissociative identity disorder. As the story progresses, the character is able to communicate, involuntarily, with an Egyptian lunar god called Khonshu.
From there, he is graced with the power of super strength and uses it to his advantage to fight the criminal underworld under the identity of the Moon Knight.
According to the details that have already been made public, the character’s usual white costume will be kept in the new series. In the original comics, created by Doug Moench, Spector is presumed dead at the beginning of the narrative, but has a second chance to live precisely on account of Khonshu.
