Oscar Isaac meets a moon god in Moon Knight preview scene

Marvel’s Moon Knight has a lot of surface similarities with DC’s Batman. But it’s unlikely you’ve ever seen a superhero like this. Oscar Isaac is playing the title role and his alter ego, Steven Grant. Unfortunately for Steven, he has no idea that he’s Moon Knight or the mercenary Marc Spector. Steven has a very severe case of dissociative identity disorder, but his various personalities are about to crash into each other.

In the first preview scene from the series, Steven has a haunting encounter with a terrifying monster. What Steven doesn’t know is that he’s on a first-name basis with the creature. This is the Egyptian god of the moon, Khonsu, and he is the deity who transformed Steven into the man that he is today.

Although we don’t hear Khonshu’s voice in the clip, he will be voiced by Oscar-winner F. Murray Abraham (Amadeus). And unfortunately for Steven, he’s made himself look like a lunatic to the poor old woman on the elevator with him.

Ethan Hawke co-stars in the series as Arthur Harrow, a charismatic cult leader who has a patron deity of his own. In Arthur’s case, his god is Ammit, the Egyptian “Devourer of the Dead.” May Calamawy co-stars as Layla El-Faouly, a mystery woman who has connections with Steven’s Marc Spector persona. However, she has no idea that Steven suffers from such severe mental problems. The late Gaspard Ulliel will portray Anton Mogart, aka Midnight Man.

The first episode of Moon Knight will premiere on Wednesday, March 31 on Disney+.

Marvel’s Secret Invasion trailer pits Nick Fury against the Skrulls
Samuel L. Jackson in Secret Invasion.

Do you remember the last time that Nick Fury appeared in the MCU? It was a light-hearted post-credits scene in Spider-Man: Far From Home, where Fury was apparently vacationing on a Skrull starship and looking for his missing shoes. But you won't find anything funny about the new trailer for Secret Invasion.

Instead, Marvel's upcoming Disney+ series is embracing a sense of paranoia that's been missing from its movies for years. After all, it's hard to trust anyone when the Skrulls can change their appearance on a dime. The worst part is that this is all Fury's fault.

Marvel casts Yahya Abdul-Mateen II as Wonder Man for Disney+
Yahya Abdul-Mateen II in Candyman.

Yahya Abdul-Mateen II will reprise his role as DC Comics' villainous Black Manta in next year's Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom. However, Abdul-Mateen is going to get a chance to portray a superhero of his own in the Marvel Cinematic Universe as well. Deadline is reporting that Abdul-Mateen has been cast as Simon Williams, aka Wonder Man, for his own upcoming Disney+ series.

Don't let the name fool you. Marvel's Wonder Man has nothing to do with DC's Wonder Woman. Instead, Stan Lee and artists Don Heck and Jack Kirby created Simon Williams as a one-off Avengers villain in 1964. Within his debut story, Simon was a disgraced executive who was given superpowers by the Masters of Evil in return for infiltrating the Avengers and betraying them. Regardless, Simon ultimately sided with the Avengers and turned against the Masters even though it cost him his life.

Last night in Los Angeles, Marvel Studios gave Black Panther: Wakanda Forever a world premiere on Hollywood Boulevard. The early word from critics is that it serves as a fitting tribute to the late Chadwick Boseman and his character, T'Challa. It also sets the stage for the future by putting the spotlight on the female characters from the first film. During a taping of Jimmy Kimmel Live, two preview scenes from the movie were released. In the first clip, Nakia (Lupita Nyong'o) explains to Okoye (Danai Gurira) why she couldn't bear to stay in Wakanda after T'Challa's death.
