Moon Knight Trailer Explained
In the latest trailer, the protagonist, Marc Spector, is seen as a former soldier who suffers from severe dissociative identity disorder and presents himself as two separate people. Marc’s uneasiness over his mental disorder is exacerbated when he becomes the conduit for the Egyptian moon deity Khonshu.
The trailer shows how Marc is unable to differentiate between his dreams and reality and finds ways to not fall asleep to elope the danger of doing something wrong in his dreams. He tries playing with the Rubik’s cube, chains himself to the bend, only to later frantically jump out of the bed and forget that he had tied himself to prevent going back to his dreams.
Marc experiences a vision of Khonshu after exploring an ancient Egypt museum and subsequently encounters Ethan Hawke’s villain, a cult leader who pushes Marc to explore the abyss inside himself.
Marc is engulfed by the Moon Knight suit at the end of the trailer, with a view of him savagely punching someone in the face on a restroom floor.
