How can you watch Marvel’s ‘Moon Knight’ online free?
Waking up in a foreign place, not remembering what day it is, and having no control over your body? Hey, we would be freaking out too! Unfortunately, that’s the daily recurrence for the Moon Knight.
The anticipated Disney+ original series, Moon Knight starring Oscar Isaac, Ethan Hawke, and May Calamawy, premiered on Wednesday, March 30th. The show follows a lonely man who works as a store clerk in a museum, until one day his world gets turned upside down. Not only does he not know what’s real, but he also doesn’t know who he truly is!
Is he Steve Grant (Oscar Isaac), the store clerk? Or is he these voices — telling him that they borrow his body from time to time? Either way, Grant has to navigate his life with or without these multiple identities. Where can you watch Moon Knight online for free? We got all the answers.
Blackouts & ominous voices
Steve Grant is an even-tempered store clerk that suffers from blackouts & memories from another life. He eventually finds out that he has dissociative identity disorder and shares a body with Moon Knight. No biggie right?
The first episode opens up with a holy man smashing broken glass into his shoes and walking around. While Steve Grant wakes up with his ankle tied to a post and sand surrounding his bed.
As Grant has extensive knowledge of ancient Egypt, he’s utterly dismissed by his boss & coworkers, he also can’t remember when he asked out that pretty coworker of his and why his body insists on moving around while he sleeps. As he desperately tries to keep himself awake at night, he wakes up in a different country with a dislocated jaw.
An ominous voice demands Grant to give up his body. He’s attacked by two strange men, running into a group of people being morally judged by a magical holy man. Having trouble piecing everything together, Grant blacks out several times finding himself in messy situations.
The Egyptian Moon God
The series is based on a 1980s comic about a man cloaked in the spirit of the Egyptian moon god. Moon Knight swears vengeance on “Bushman”, the mercenary who takes innocent lives and leaves his colleagues for dead. Before he was the macabre Moon Knight, he was mercenary Marc Spector.
While on a job in Sudan, Marc – who’s introduced in the “Werewolf by Night #32” comic in 1975 – is killed by a fellow mercenary near an unearthed tomb with the statue of the Egyptian moon god, Khonshu.
As the Fist of Khonshu, Moon Knight defended those who traveled under the moon, but the psychic trauma resulted in additional identities. Initially, these identities included Steven Grant, and hard-luck cabbie Jake Lockley, but would grow to include the methodical detective Mr. Knight.
In the Disney+ series, executive producer Grant Curtis told USA Today in 2022 that Moon Knight is about discovering and unpacking self-identity.
He states, “The journey that Marc Spector is on during our whole show is: Who am I? And how do I reconcile portions of my past, present and potential future that I don’t necessarily agree with? Coming to terms with our baggage and learning to live with ourselves is what we all deal with on a day-to-day basis.”
