Last week, Marvel’s new series “Moon Knight” made its premiere on Disney+. The premiere is hiding a secret that only the sharpest of viewers would have noticed. If you look closely, there’s something cool hidden in the scene where Oscar Isaac‘s character is talking to a young girl in the museum. On the wall behind them is a QR code. But what is it for? If you scan it with your phone you will be sent to a site where you can get free Marvel comics! The Marvel.com website notes that new free issues will be available each week through the QR code.
Dune star Oscar Isaac plays the role of Marc Spector, suffering from Dissociative Identity Disorder (DID). After dying and being brought back to life by the ancient Egyptian god Khonshu he becomes Moon Knight. To hide his identity he creates the alter ego of a high-roller and playboy Steven Grant. He also uses the identity of taxi driver Jake Lockley to obtain information from lower-level contacts. Moon Knight frequently goes head to head with the evil syndicate known as “The Committee” in the comics.
Ethan Hawke‘s new villainous role is as Dr. Arthur Harrow, a scientist who is in the running for a Noble PeacePrice until it is discovered that he was involved in the Nazi experiments during WWII.
Moon Knight was created by Doug Moench and Don Perlin and was introduced in the comic Werewolf by Night #32 in August of 1975, before getting his own comic in the early 80s.
Mohamed Diab (Clash) is both directing along with Justin Benson and Aaron Moorhead (Resolution, Spring, V/H/S: Viral, The Endless), as well as serving as showrunner.
