Disney Plus Moon Knight dropped its first few episodes on the streaming service today, March 30th. Starring Oscar Isaac, who plays dual roles in the series, and based on the popular comic book character, this new series is something fresh and new coming out of Marvel Sudios.

Moon Knight Costume Details
Many fans have been curious about Disney Plus’ Moon Knight costume, considering the character has two very iconic looks in the comic books. These include the Moon Knight costume and the Mr. Knight suit, a totally different look altogether. When coming up with the looks of each, Executive Producer Grant Curtis stated it was really about picking the best idea that would win. Oscar Isaac goes on to say, “It was an investigation and a collaboration.”I think that was what was so exciting.” He goes on to say that there was a moment when Marc was Mr. Knight and Steven was Moon Knight. However, the more they talked about it, the more it totally switched.
Eventually, they settled on each look, and Isaac was particularly pleased. He boasted, “Meghan, our costume designer, she did such an astounding job taking it from a concept to something that I could wear, and move in, and fight in. The craftsmanship was just astonishing.“
When the Moon Knight suit was first revealed, fans gushed over the beauty of the costumes, but also how different the look was from what they imagined. Director Mohamed Diab praises the collaboration of the team that executed the design, “You always think, why work with one mind when you can work with 50, you know? And it really showed in that suit. Everyone loves how different from all the other Marvel shows. It’s beautiful.” This collaboration even extended beyond the costume department, and when Oscar Isaac joined the show, he even had a few opinions on it, which the team took into consideration.
