This time Marvel has come up with the story of a superhero who is battling with himself instead of being equipped with any superpower. Marvel’s new superhero series Moon Knight, spread over six episodes, has been released on Disney Plus Hotstar on 30 March. Moon Knight stars Oscar Isaac in the dual roles of Steven Grant and Mark Spector.
Embracing the mutual tussle of the gods of Egyptian mythology, Moon Knight has a great visual experience. Four episodes made available for review provide an idea of Moon Knight’s personality and the challenges he faces in the future.
Moon Knight Web Series Story:
A simple man named Steven Grant transforms into Mark Spector and becomes Moon Knight. Mark or Moon Knight can also be called Steven’s Alter Ego. The series begins with Steven Grant’s routine. The humble Steven works in the Egyptian History Showroom in London. The seemingly ordinary Steven is battling his second person, Mark Spector, who is in his subconscious and trying to control him. Glimpses of events related to him have become a nightmare for Steven. Even sleepless nights are starting to scare him.
According to Egyptian mythology, Mark Khonshu is the human form of the deity, who draws his power from the moon and the pointed moon is his symbol and weapon. At one end of the series is Steven Grant, and at the other end is Arthur Harrow, the human form of the Egyptian mythological figure Emmit. As a cult leader, Arthur sets out to improve the world. There are also glimpses of Arthur and his deeds in Steven’s dreams. Arthur is trying to make the world holy today by eliminating people who may do evil things in the future and the Moon Knight is the obstacle in his way.

Moon Knight Web Series Review:
The line between the hero and the villain could not be clear in the initial episodes of the series. At various places in the series, Steven is seen talking to his alter ego mark through an image reflected in a mirror, water, or glass. In these scenes, Oscar is seen as two completely different people. Oscar told in the show launch press conference that he used to bring his brother Michael Hernandez on set to prepare for these scenes, who played the character of the other person and talked like that.
Ethan Hawke’s performance in the role of Arthur Harrow is amazing. The character is a mix of a spiritual man and a mighty villain. Calamawy played the role of archaeologist Lyla L. Foley and Mark’s associate. In terms of her looks and performance, Lyla fits perfectly in this character.
Written by head writer Jeremy Slater, the Moon Knight series enjoys genres such as psychological thriller, horror, comedy, action, and adventure. The four episodes have been directed by director Mohamed Diab, who has enthralled the landscape of Egyptian mythology in a very interesting way. Two episodes are directed by Justin Benson and Aaron Moorhead.
Moon Knight is the perfect offering for fans of the Marvel and Superhero genre that strikes a chord with its story and characters. Also, you would love to see Moon Knight wearing an Ironman-style suit.
