Marvel’s new series, Moon Knight has already started receiving a lot of praise on Twitter. The Oscar Isaac starrer premiered on Disney+ and the first episode met with a lot of praise. One of the highly anticipated series in the MCU, the horror-thriller story revolves around Steven Grant.
The character is a mild-mannered gift-shop employee who suffers from blackouts and memories of another existence. Steven realizes that he has dissociative identity disorder and shares a body with mercenary Marc Spector in the series premiere.
The new series is the fifth live-action show on Disney+ that features a character who hasn’t been seen on-screen before. Marvel’s take on Egyptian mythology is depicted through Moon Knight. Spector was a US Marine who turned into a mercenary who suffers from a dissociative identity disorder. This is exacerbated by Khonshu’s power over him.
Khonshu is the God of Moon and Spector assumes various identities which the program looks to be exploring as well. Naturally, after the first episode was released, fans took to social media to voice their opinions.
“Disney Plus has just released the first episode of Moon Knight. It is great to see Marvel progressing stories of superheroes with disability,” one of the tweets read. “wow, #MoonKnight is not what i expected at all but i loved it and i’m dying to see where this goes. i am so happy we’ve entered the MCU’s weird era,” another user chimed in.
Some wanted more because of how much they loved the first episode. A user expressed, “We only get one episode of #MoonKnight to start us off. Disney+ you are cruel!”
