One of the more intriguing titles in the upcoming series of Marvel Cinematic Universe projects is “Moonlight Knight. Even die-hard comic book fans can scratch their heads at the mention of the little-known character, a former Marine with dissociative identity disorder who is endowed with divine powers. Egypt. Oscar Isaac, who plays Moon Knight in the upcoming Disney+ limited series, said he had not heard of the character before being approached about the role. And if the six-episode cast and crew are to be believed, the hero’s relative obscurity has allowed them to branch out and create something truly unique.

Isaac expressed relief the fact that a film’s performance isn’t measured by box office revenue, allowed the creative team to experiment more. “There was a lot of room to try on,” says Isaac, “because we had no pressure to secure hundreds of millions of dollars in opening weekend. “We can make very strange decisions.” Isaac’s excitement about the show’s creative direction is palpable, and it seems he’s not the only one feeling the same way.

In a new Interview with EmpirePresident of Marvel Studios Kevin Feige went on to emphasize that “Knight of the Moon” is a very different genre of the Marvel series. He commended Disney+ for giving them more freedom to make a darker, more violent show. He also believes the new tone is authentic to the Marvel character, who he describes as simply “brutal”.

“It’s been a pleasure working with Disney+ and seeing the boundaries shift in terms of what we can do,” Feige said. “There are moments when Moon Knight is crying out to another character, it’s so loud and brutal, and the sensational reaction is, ‘We’re going to take this back, aren’t we?’ Is not. We don’t back down. There is a tonal shift. This is a different thing. This is ‘Moon Knight.’ “

Up until this point, Disney has primarily produced family-friendly content for Disney+ and discounted more adult tickets for Hulu. If “Moon Knight” is as brutal as Feige claims, it could signal something of a change in the company’s streaming strategy.

For better or for worse, it looks like “Moon Knight” will be a very unique experience for Marvel fans. The series also has the participation of stars Ethan Hawkepremieres on Disney+ on March 30.
