The show marks Oscar’s second Marvel role, having voiced Miguel O’Hara in the animated Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, a role he’s reprising in the film’s sequel.
In Moon Knight, the Star Wars actor portrays the titular character, Marc Spector, a former US Marine who has dissociative identity disorder and becomes a conduit for the Egyptian moon god Khonshu.
The link to the Egyptian god is hinted in the latest teaser, as a glimpse of a pyramid is briefly shown among several other exciting clips.
The sneak peek – which has been released as a teaser for a longer trailer due to come out on Monday – opens with Marc lying down while throwing a Rubik’s cube into the air.

The scene transitions to another showing the protagonist in a bathroom, turning the light on and off as he looks at his reflection in the mirror, which switches to show Moon Knight looking back at him instead.
As Marc is shown sprinting desperately through a corridor and then shrouded in darkness, Ethan’s character appears, who’s yet to be named.
‘There’s chaos in you,’ he says cryptically, with some speculating that the actor could have been cast as the Sun King, a character that made his first appearance in the Marvel comic Moon Knight Vol 1 #188, released in 2017.

One intriguing snippet shows Marc transforming into Moon Knight, as his costume wraps itself around him in a way that appears out of his control.
The teaser ends with the masked figure punching someone incessantly in a destroyed bathroom.

The 15-second teaser has left fans overwhelmed with excitement, as one responded on Twitter saying: ‘This show is gonna be wild, I’m telling you.’
‘Holy s**t this looks good,’ someone else said, while another wrote: ‘It’s not even out yet but it’s the best Disney Plus show.’
