Who is Moon Knight?

Moon Knight is an Egyptian god of the moon called Khonshu, more importantly he is also the God of vengeance. He choses a human that he considers worthy to take the form of Moon Knight because he is unable to enter the realm of earth himself.

Marc Spector

Some people refer to Marc Spector as the host of several characters. He's an ex-marine turned mercenary, highly trained in combat. After losing a fight to a fellow (but evil) mercenary, he is left for dead. Fortunately, though, he is taken to a statue of the moon god of vengeance, who then uses Marc’s body as its host.

Steven Grant

This character is a quiet museum gift-shop employee. Interestingly, in the comic books he is a successful business man and somewhat of a Playboy. It is possible Disney changed this idea because the character was so similar to 'Batman' and appeared around the same time as the new Robert Pattinson blockbuster.

Oscar Isaac's British accent for Steven Grant

Due to the relocation of filming from New York to London, Oscar Isaac added the British accent to the character himself. It’s not bad, but he does tend to lose the accent occasionally.

Mr. Knight

Steven Grant's alter ego is Mr. Knight: a calmer and more sophisticated character that the flamboyant Moon Knight. He is a more down to earth character and he focuses more on the detective side of the battle.

Jake Lockley

Another of Marc’s identities is this 'man on the street' for Moon Knight. He has his ears and eyes on the ground and is capable of getting information that is otherwise difficult to obtain.

Arthur Harrow

Played by Ethan Hawke, Harrow is a cult-like leader who has the power of another Egyptian God, ‘Ammit'. He judges people in the hardest possible way, whether they have been - or are going to be - good or bad.

Raoul Bushman

Raoul Bushman is an associate from Marc’s mercenary days. He is a bad man who enjoys violence. He's also the one who left Marc for dead after killing an archaeologist and trying to kill his daughter. That won't be the last we see of Bushman, though.

Who is Layla?

After a typically awful day, Steven comes home to find a hidden phone. On it, he sees that a person named Layla has called him multiple times. While he is checking the phone, it starts to ring - it’s Layla calling again.

Layla is also confused

When Steven answers the phone, Layla is confused. She refers to him as Marc, his alter ego, and she cannot understand why he is speaking with a British accent all of a sudden. Clearly, Oscar Isaac's character consists of very different, multiple personalities.

Gadgets

Like 'Batman', Moon Knight loves his gadgets. He has a glider cloak, a wonderful array of darts, an energy shield and, of course, all the toys that come within the suit.

Personality disorder or superpowers?

At the beginning of the series, Marc appears to be struggling with mental health problems - perhaps a personality disorder. But soon enough, it becomes clear that perhaps, instead of a disorder, his problems are the consequence of Marc being the host to the Egyptian moon god Khonshu.

Khonshu

Khonshu is played by Karim El Hakim (photo) with the voice of another actor, the Oscar winner F. Murray Abraham. The god is believed to have four aspects: Defender, Embracer, Pathfinder and the Watcher of overnight travellers.

Far from the original comics

Disney's version of 'Moon Knight' strays far from the original comics. This makes it hard to predict what will happen in the series, and that's exactly what makes it so exciting.
