Moon Knight, the next Marvel series to be launched on Disney+, debuted a new teaser on NBC’s Super Bowl coverage on Sunday. The latest trailer shows Oscar Isaac’s anguished protagonist character, Arthur Harrow, receiving advice from Ethan Hawke, who plays the wise Arthur Harrow. In the NFL’s last game of the season, the Los Angeles Rams take on the Cincinnati Bengals.
“It must be very difficult, the voices in your head,” Hawke’s character says. “There’s chaos in you. Embrace it.”
Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige guaranteed fans in a recent interview with Empire magazine that the series will be an unexpected experience.
“It’s been fun to work with Disney+ and see the boundaries shifting on what we’re able to do,” Feige said. “There are moments [in the series] when Moon Knight is wailing on another character, and it is loud and brutal, and the knee-jerk reaction is, ‘We’re gonna pull back on this, right?’”
In another interview , Isaac shared, “We’re making something that’s quite different, and that doesn’t follow the same … logic of what a lot of superhero films do.”
Moon Knight will premiere on Disney+ on March 30, 2021. The series has inter mixed plotlines with WandaVision, The Falcon and the Winter Soldier, Loki, What If…?, and Hawkeye.

May Calamawy was cast in an unnamed “important role” for the series in January 2021, while Ethan Hawke was cast as Arthur Harrow, the series’ primary villain, who was thought to be a hybrid of another Moon Knight figure, the Sun King.
Hawke says he joined the show because of where he thought he was in his acting career and because Isaac and Diab were involved. He relished the creative flexibility that comes with presenting a lesser-known narrative in a series. Gaspard Ulliel joined the cast by July 2021 as Anton Mogart / Midnight Man, in one of his last roles before his death in January 2022. Lucy Thackeray was revealed as Donna in the trailer released in January 2022.
