Summon the suit, Marc Spector! Marvel unveiled an official clip for its highly anticipated live-action series, Moon Knight. The said clip features our titular hero, Marc (Oscar Isaac), Layla El-Faouly (May Calamawy) and Arthur Harrow (Ethan Hawke). 

In the brief video, Layla turns to Marc and emphatically asks him to “summon the suit” while shoving an essential item against Marc’s chest for safekeeping. She refers to Marc as one of his personalities, Steven Grant. As Marc and Layla escape, we see what appears to be Arthur’s henchmen briefly scuffle with Layla. 

Meanwhile, Arthur holds a staff and recites a spell to unleash a creature. We see the beast emerge from the ground with one massive, taloned hand by the clip’s end.

This teaser gives me serious Indiana Jones-meets-The Mummy vibes, and I’m here for it. Given the source material and the ties to Egyptian mythology, it makes sense. 

On another note, I believe Layla replaces Marlene Alraune, who was Marc’s love interest in the comic books. If the rumors about Loic Mabanza‘s character are true and he’s portraying Raul Bushman, this would establish a connection between them. Bushman murders Marlene’s father in the comics. 

Regardless, I’m thrilled to watch this intriguing and nuanced character get the spotlight he deserves. I’m equally excited to witness Oscar Isaac’s undoubtedly brilliant portrayal of a messy, complicated hero in the Marvel canon. 

Moon Knight stars Oscar Isaac, May Calamawy, Gaspard Ulliel, Loic Mabanza and Ethan Hawke. Mohamed DiabAaron Moorhead and Justin Benson serve as directors, with Jeremy Slater as the head writer. Brace yourself for a new hero when the series premieres on Wednesday, March 30, on Disney Plus. 

Watch the clip below!
