An image from the set of Marvel’s upcoming Disney + series, Moon knight, gives us our first look at the mysterious Ethan Hawke villain. The leaked image was taken during filming that is currently taking place in Budapest, Hungary and shows the Training Day star wearing a tan suit and carrying a cane as well as sporting long hair and a beard.
Marvel Moon knight It has a rich and complicated origin and tells a comic book story that is ready for a serial adaptation. Before becoming a superhero, Marc Spector grew up in Chicago and eventually became a heavyweight boxer before enlisting as a U.S. Marine.After his military career, Spector becomes a mercenary, which leads to him to take on a mission involving an archaeological dig in Egypt, where a statue of the Egyptian moon god Khonshu has been discovered.
As is often the case with these kinds of comic book deals, the situation goes awry and Spector is betrayed by his employer, Raoul Bushman, and left to die at the excavation site in the freezing temperatures of the night. Before succumbing to the sweet release of death, Khonshu approaches him in a vision and tells him that if he becomes his incarnation on Earth, he will let him live. And so, Spector awakens and becomes a Moon Knight. Returning from Egypt with his newfound superpowers, Spector decides to become a crime fighter, leaving his mercenary days behind by wisely investing the blood money he earned and using his wealth to fight crime and corruption.
While it has not yet been revealed who Ethan hawke portrayed in the series, many have theorized that it will be Spector’s former employer and back-traitor, Raoul Bushman. Although the character does not have superpowers, he is an expert in guerilla warfare and very proficient in the use of most conventional firearms, occasionally using metal teeth to rip apart his enemies in close combat. There are several other characters you could be playing across the spectrum of the Moon knight myths, including, of course, Mephisto, whom many expected to appear in WandaVision.
Moon knight is slated to be directed by Mohamed Diab, Justin Benson and Aaron Moorhead and is written by Jeremy Slater. Starring Oscar Isaac as the titular superhero, a unique look from Moon knight It is Spector’s Dissociative Identity Disorder, manifested in the form of three separate personalities, each with distinctive traits, identities, and even fighting styles. Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige has since confirmed this crucial element for the upcoming series, assuring fans that this exploration of mental health will play a major role in the Disney + adaptation saying, “Mental illness is a unique aspect of the program “.
