Phase 4 of Marvel Cinematic Universe is there and, as you may know, it relies heavily not only on new movies but also on TV shows for the Disney+ streaming platform. One of the most anticipated projects is “Moon Knight”, starring Oscar Isaac.
The series revolves around moon knight, aka Steven Grant, who is a vigilante who suffers from dissociative identity disorder (DID). The first trailer for the series dropped on January 17, and it looks like the series will follow the darker path that Marvel has charted for this Phase 4.
