How to watch Moon Knight online: Where to stream, release dates, plot and trailer

5 min read

Moon Knight is hardly a household name in the world of superheroes, but that might change when the Fist of Khonshu makes his MCU debut later this month. The six-episode miniseries features Oscar Isaac in the titular role of Moon Knight, a dark and brooding vigilante whose life can best be described as The Crow meets Fight Club — with capes. Want to know when and where to watch the premiere of Moon Knight online in the U.S., U.K., Canada and Australia? Then check read on for our guide on how to watch Moon Knight online.

The character of Moon Knight is often regarded as Marvel’s Batman, and there are plenty of parallels that you can draw between the two superheroes to support that. The most in-your-face of which include: Moon Knight’s silver crescent-darts, which bear an uncanny similarity to batarangs; both being expert-level detectives and martial artists; the two sharing an alter-ego of a wealthy playboy; and both heroes being seen as vigilante avatars of vengeance. However, while the two heroes have a lot in common, Moon Knight is by no means a carbon copy of DC’s caped crusader.

In the comics, Moon Knight has a celestial origin story involving the Egyptian god of the Moon, Khonshu. Mercenary Marc Spector is left for dead in a Sudanese desert after turning on his employer to save the lives of two innocent archeologists. Khonshu revives Marc, before choosing him as the knight of the Moon and setting him on a path of redeeming his former life by protecting and avenging the innocent. It’s pretty standard superhero stuff until it is revealed that Marc also suffers from a dissociative identity disorder with him playing host to a number of personas including billionaire Steven Grant, cabbie Jake Lockley and consultant Mr. Knight.

However, the upcoming live-action adaptation takes things in a slightly different direction by initially following the persona of Steven Grant — who seemingly isn’t a billionaire businessman like his comic book counterpart. Instead, Steven is a socially inept employee of a museum gift shop who is haunted by blackouts and memories of an unfamiliar life. Steven eventually discovers that he is suffering from dissociative identity disorder and that he shares a body with a mysterious mercenary named Marc Spencer. Things go from bad to worse for Steven as he is also drawn into a deadly mystery with links to the ancient gods of Egypt.
