The latest Disney+ series, Moon Knight, is right around the corner, making now the perfect time to start prepping. Take a look ahead for what to watch ahead of Moon Knight!
Ultimate Spider-Man: The Moon Knight Before Christmas
Moon Knight plays a major role in a Christmas-themed episode of this Spider-Man animated series. It also features Doctor Strange, Mysterio, Aunt May, and more!
Premise: While house sitting for Dr. Strange on Christmas Eve, Spidey teams with the mysterious Moon Knight to confront his own Ghost of Christmas Past.
Spider-Man: Vengeance of Venom
Moon Knight also makes an appearance in an episode of the 2017 Spider-Man animated series.
Premise: When the symbiotes attack New York City, Spider-Man must convince Mark Spector to come out of retirement and help protect the city.
Oscar Isaac takes on the role of Marc Spector / Steven Grant / Moon Knight / Mr. Knight in the new Disney+ series, and what better way to prepare than diving into Isaac’s rich filmography. Ex Machina remains one of the best sci-fi films of the last two decades and showcases Isaac’s incredible acting range.
Premise: Caleb, a 26 year old programmer at the world’s largest internet company, wins a competition to spend a week at a private mountain retreat belonging to Nathan, the reclusive CEO of the company. But when Caleb arrives at the remote location he finds that he will have to participate in a strange and fascinating experiment in which he must interact with the world’s first true artificial intelligence, housed in the body of a beautiful robot woman.
Moon Knight represents a turn into the supernatural for the MCU, something we will see much more of in the future. Moon Knight has a long history with Blade in the comics and, with Mahershala Ali’s Blade film coming soon, it’s possible the vampire hunter makes an appearance in Moon Knight.
Premise: A half-vampire, half-mortal man becomes a protector of the mortal race, while slaying evil vampires.
A central part of Moon Knight’s story relates to dissociative identities, or split personalities as they’re often referred to. Like Moon Knight, M. Night Shmalayan’s 2017 horror film Split takes this premise to the extreme in some daring ways.
Premise: Three girls are kidnapped by a man with a diagnosed 23 distinct personalities. They must try to escape before the apparent emergence of a frightful new 24th.
Moon Knight starts streaming on Disney+ March 30th.
