Moon Knight Poster Shows Marc Spector's Comics Accurate Crescent Weapon

The first poster for the Disney+/Marvel series Moon Knight shows off Marc Spector’s comics-accurate crescent weapon. Moon Knight stars Oscar Isaac, Ethan Hawke, and May Calamawy in the first-ever live-action adaptation of the Marvel Comics character. The show is written by Jeremy Slater, who also serves as showrunner, with episodes directed by Mohamed Diab, and Justin Benson & Aaron Moorhead.

Moon Knight was created by Doug Moench and Don Perlin in the pages of Werewolf by Night in 1975 and has gone through several ongoing and limited series books ever since. The character’s real name is Marc Spector, a former CIA mercenary who is mortally wounded in a fight with his nemesis, Raoul Bushman. Left in an unearthed tomb in form of a statue of the Egyptian moon god Khonshu, Spector is miraculously healed and given abilities that connect with the phases of the moon. He is also a character that has dissociative identity disorder, carrying a number of personalities inside of him, include the personality of Steven Grant, which is who Isaac appears to be starting off as in the show.

Now, to go along with the Moon Knight trailer, Disney+ has released the first poster for the series, which features Spector holding his signature crescent weapon. The trailer does not feature Moon Knight using the weapon, but it’s shown in the poster exactly as it appears in the comics, which serves as a kind of edged weapon, as well as a throwing one. The poster also highlights the mummy-like effects of his costume, which are teased in the Moon Knight trailer. Take a look at the poster below:

Isaac is no stranger to taking on notable roles, as he starred as Poe Dameron in the most recent Star Wars trilogy and played Duke Leto Atreides in Denis Villeneuve’s Dune. The actor is also gearing up to play the iconic Solid Snake in director Jordan Vogt-Roberts’ adaptation of the popular video gam,e Metal Gear Solid. He’ll also be taking on a different kind of iconic role in Barry Levinson’s Francis and the Godfather, playing the legendary director Francis Ford Coppola.

Moon Knight is an interesting character for Marvel to be adapting, as he’s a very complex and violent comic-book persona, often likened to as Batman with dissociative identity disorder. However, Marc Spector doesn’t have as tragic of a past as Bruce Wayne, but he does carry a number of sins from that time frame that make him a unique character to bring into the MCU fold. Whether or not Marvel will lean into his more violent and morally questionable aspects remains to be seen, but thus far the look, feel, and tone feel consistent with his comic book roots. Moon Knight begins streaming exclusively on Disney+ starting March 30.
