Marvel Studios head Kevin Feige has revealed that the upcoming "Moon Knight" series is much edgier than his other movies and shows. The series follows Oscar Issac's Steven Grant, a mild-mannered gift shop clerk, as he frets over blackouts and memories of another life.
Steven discovers that he has dissociative identity disorder and shares a body with Marc Spector, an elite soldier and mercenary who decides to fight crime after becoming the human avatar of Khonshu, the Egyptian god of the moon.
In an interview with Empire magazine, Feige said the Disney Plus show, based on the character from the Marvel comics, marks a "tonal shift" in how the studio has perceived its content thus far.
"It's brutal. It's been fun working with Disney+ and seeing how they push the boundaries of what we're capable of. There are times (in the show) where Moon Knight is crying over another character, and he's strong and brutal, and the The knee-jerk reaction is: 'We're going to back out of this, right?' No. We're not going to back down. There's a change of tone. This is something different. This is Moon Knight," he said.
Feige is attached as an executive producer on the "Moon Knight" series along with Louis D'Esposito, Victoria Alonso, Brad Winderbaum, Jeremy Slater, Diab and Isaac.
