For those who have been waiting to binge Moon Knight, now is the time. The Marvel Cinematic Universe series has officially finished its run on Disney+. That means all six episodes are now available and ready to be streamed at the click of a button or two. No more waiting week-to-week wondering what is going to happen next. You can watch Marc Spector’s journey from beginning to end. That is, if this really is the end.

Oscar Isaac stars as the lead of the show, marking his return to the world of superheroes. Isaac previously starred as the title villain in 2016’s X-Men: Apocalypse. That, however, did not go according to plan and was largely met with unfavorable reviews. In this case, Isaac got to be a part of the MCU and brought a brand new character to life for the first time in live-action. Given that he is one of the actors at the very top of Hollywood’s A-list right now, it instantly added a great deal of credibility to the project from the jump.
Here is the synopsis for Moon Knight.
“Moon Knight follows Steven Grant, a mild-mannered gift-shop employee, who becomes plagued with blackouts and memories of another life. Steven discovers he has dissociative identity disorder and shares a body with mercenary Marc Spector. As Steven/Marc’s enemies converge upon them, they must navigate their complex identities while thrust into a deadly mystery among the powerful gods of Egypt.”
The series also stars Ethan Hawke as the villain Arthur Harrow, with May Calamawy on board as Layla. Jeremy Slater served as head writer, with Mohamad Diab directing four of the show’s six episodes. Justin Benson and Aaron Moorhead directed the other two.
Moon Knight debuted in the pages of Marvel Comics back in 1975. The character, created by Doug Moench and Don Perlin, first appeared in Werewolf by Night #32 before eventually leading a solo series. There has been much talk over the years of possibly bringing the character to the MCU. The advent of Disney+ and these new live-action Marvel shows finally made it possible. The big question right now is whether or not this will be a single-season thing like WandaVision, or if it will get a second season like Loki. Isaac only signed a contract for a single season, which means he’s not obligated to return. So, if Marvel Studios wants to continue, they would have to work it out with him.
Moon Knight is now streaming on Disney+.
