MOON KNIGHT magazine cover sees Moon Knight and Mr. Knight stepping out of the shadows

A new magazine cover about Marvel Studios Moon Knight was released which teases two different sides of Steven Grant/Marc Spector’s superhero alter-ego: Moon Knight and the enigmatic Mr. Knight.

Moon Knight seems to be one of the most exciting new additions to the Marvel Cinematic Universe during Phase 4. Although we don’t know what the future holds for the unhinged superhero beyond his upcoming limited series on Disney+, it’s hard to imagine him being anything other than a major move forward, especially if Marvel Studios is looking to embrace the supernatural.

Following this horror-inspired clip earlier today, a new magazine cover has been released that features two different sides of this whacky superhero: Moon Knight and Mr. Knight. How these characters will differ remains to be seen, but it’s certainly an interesting weapon the latter wields.

Marvel Studios seems to be leaning heavily on Egyptian mythology with this series, and that could be a game-changer. Remember, in the comics, Moon God Khonshu once crossed paths with Rama-Tut, a variant of Kang.

The series follows mild-mannered gift shop clerk Steven Grant, who is plagued by power outages and memories from another life. Steven discovers he has dissociative identity disorder and shares a body with mercenary Marc Spector. As Steven/Marc’s enemies converge on them, they must navigate their complex identities while immersed in a mystery among the mighty gods of Egypt.

Moon Knight stars Oscar Isaac, Ethan Hawke and May Calamawy. Mohamed Diab and the team of Justin Benson & Aaron Moorhead directed the episodes (there is no mention of George Clooney). Jeremy Slater is the head writer and Kevin Feige, Louis D’Esposito, Victoria Alonso, Brad Winderbaum, Mohamed Diab, Jeremy Slater and Oscar Isaac are the executive producers.

Moon Knight premieres on Disney+ on March 30.
