Disney+ is expanding its MCU roster with a new Marvel superhero entering the fold. "Moon Knight" follows the story of mild-mannered gift-shop employee Steven Grant, who suddenly finds himself plagued with memories of another life on account of having dissociative identity disorder. Steven discovers that he shares a body with mercenary Marc Spector, and together, the two must figure out how to navigate their identities and enemies as they tackle a dark mystery amongst Egypt's powerful gods.

"Moon Knights"'s featurette arrived on March 10, which includes inside commentary from actors Ethan Hawke, Oscar Isaac, May Calamawy, and executive director Kevin Feige. "The fun of 'Moon Knight' is getting introduced to a new superhero and a new world," Hawke says in the short clip. Isaac adds: "It's a real, legitimate character study . . . our job was to kind of put a lens on the things that had the most dramatic juice, and ultimately, take the mental health aspect incredibly seriously."

As detailed in the featurette, the series will share more about both Steven and Marc as Marvel fans get better acquainted with the newest addition to the superhero world. "Moon Knight" begins streaming on Disney+ on March 30. Get a first look at the series above.
