The anticipation for Moon Knight’s debut in 2022 has been growing for quite some time, with one of Marvel’s darker and more obscure heroes finally getting his due. Whispers were set to premiere in autumn 2020, but Disney has subsequently confirmed that Oscar Isaac will play the cult hero character, making him the most recent addition to their star-studded cast.
Fans can start to get excited now, as manufacturing began in April 2021 and ended in October 2021, so things are well on their way. Now, as part of Disney’s Disney Plus Day celebrations, a trailer from the series has been released.
Moon Knight is set to be launched in 2022, and if current rumors are correct, the dark street-level vigilante might be the next Marvel Studios show to air on Disney+. That means it’ll be released ahead of Love and Thunder, but how will the two work together?
