Moon Knight: Oscar Isaac Promises A Serious Mental Health Aspect

Moon Knight

In the Moon Knight mental health aspect will be taken seriously, according to Oscar Isaac. He believes the creative team’s task was to put a lens on it. Isaac will play Steven Grant, a mild-mannered gift shop employee who suffers from a sleep condition. Also, blackouts as well in the new Marvel Cinematic Universe series.

Steven, on the other hand, begins to recall a previous existence and his true identity as Marc Spector, a mercenary with dissociative identity disorder who has become a conduit for the Egyptian moon deity Khonshu and a stumbling block for cult leader Arthur Harrow.

Along with Isaac, the Moon Knight cast includes Ethan Hawke as Harrow, May Calamawy as Layla El-Faouly. Moreover, a woman from Marc’s past, Gaspard Ulliel as Midnight Man, and F. Murray Abraham as Khonshu’s voice.

The MCU series is directed by Mohamed Diab and includes independent sci-fi/horror genre pair Justin Benson and Aaron Moorhead. Moreover, The Umbrella Academy developer and future Mortal Kombat 2 scribe Jeremy Slater. As the premiere of Moon Knight approaches, those behind the series are revealing new details about what’s to come.

From the Oscar-winning One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest to the critically panned Me, Myself & Irene, the investigation of mental health in film and television has been a difficult story to construct. Throughout the production of Moon Knight, both Isaac and Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige have stated that the show will adequately address Marc’s dissociative personality problem.

General audiences were both excited and apprehensive about whether a superhero programme could appropriately approach this topic. Also, if it would mischaracterize it in an attempt to keep them captivated with a more compelling tale than most other titles.


Isaac’s assurance that Moon Knight is paying attention to the character’s mental health should allay some of these fears. The trailers for the series so far have hinted at a thorough examination of Marc’s DID. Moreover, notably the depiction of a variety of his identities and the extended screen time they appear to be getting.

Moreover, when Moon Knight arrives on Disney+ on March 30, only time will tell how people react to this element.
