Empire Magazine has shared a first look at next month's covers, and they spotlight one of the most highly anticipated Disney+ Marvel series yet, Moon Knight. The newsstand cover gives us a new look at Oscar Isaac suited-up as the titular vigilante, and we also have a stunning subscriber cover from acclaimed comic book artist Bill Sienkiewicz.

The recent trailer revealed that Isaac will actually be playing the aspect of Marc Spector's personality known as Steven Grant (slightly dodgy London accent and all), who will slowly come to learn that he is actually a lethal mercenary who has been granted abilities by the Egyptian Moon God Khonshu.

You can check out the covers in the thread below, but be sure to keep an eye out for updates as Empire will also be debuting new stills, interviews, and more over the next couple of weeks.

We still don't know a whole lot about Moon Knight, but there have been rumors that Mark Ruffalo could appear as The Hulk, and that The Falcon and The Winter Soldier's Emily VanCamp might show up as Sharon Carter.

The show has Cairo 678 director Mohamed Diab behind the camera, and we found out last year that the Disney+ series has also enlisted Justin Benson & Aaron Moorhead (The Endless, Synchronic) to helm additional episodes. Jeremy Slater (The Umbrella Academy; The Exorcist) will serve as showrunner, and is leading the show's writing team.

Plot details are still under wraps, but the small-screen adaptation is expected to stick pretty close to the basic premise of the comic, with Marc Spector, a highly skilled mercenary who has numerous alter-egos, channelling the power of the Egyptian moon god Khonshu to fight crime in LA.

A recent synopsis stated that "the action-adventure features a complex vigilante who suffers from dissociative identity disorder. The multiple identities who live inside him are distinct characters who appear against a backdrop of Egyptian iconography."

I was worried what the suit was going to look like but damn it looks amazing
batmbl - 2/11/2022, 12:20 PM
@RokoVII - I was as well. I thought it would look like the recent run where it kinda looked like a suit, but they knocked this out of the park.
dragon316 - 2/11/2022, 1:13 PM
@RokoVII - he looks like mummy
RokoVII - 2/11/2022, 1:27 PM
@dragon316 - the suit has an ancient egypt vibe for a reason which is actually refreshing than a generic superhero suit
MrMediocre - 2/11/2022, 2:18 PM
@batmbl - In the case of the suit suit, that's the Mr Knight getup, and depending on the writer, gets treated as a different persona as Moon Knight.
The1st - 2/11/2022, 3:28 PM
@RokoVII - He looks like the most amazing action figure ever on that cover, but I'm sure that'll be forgotten once the show arrives.

Best the suit's looked so far. First time I've been sold on it
UXASIS - 2/11/2022, 12:21 PM
I hope it gets more shiny-white rather than dirty-gray. Here it looks awesome.

Hope we'll get to see Mr. Knight somewhere down the line.

Also Season 2 is a must-be!!!

@UXASIS - I wanted the whole suit to be made from retroreflective clothing.

It might be daunting to a director of photography (probably causing a lot of headaches and maybe requiring a lot of custom ad hoc lighting tweaks), but the kind of unearthly effect would set Moon Knight apart from any other masked vigilante type.

I like the look in high def pictures… the fuzzy stills from the trailer don’t do that suit any justice but this looks great.
GhostDog - 2/11/2022, 12:28 PM
Suit looks tough
MCUKnight11 - 2/11/2022, 12:29 PM
I like how it looks more like a mummy than body armor to not only lean into the Egyptian aspect of it, but also to avoid Batman comparisons.
GhostSurfer - 2/11/2022, 12:30 PM
@MCUKnight11 - My thoughts exactly
GhostDog - 2/11/2022, 12:36 PM
@MCUKnight11 - you can see the gold plating underneath too
BillyBatson1000 - 2/11/2022, 12:31 PM
The suit is brilliant. The cast is magnificent. Can't wait.

Liking the Mummy design here of the suit.
OmegaDaGrodd - 2/11/2022, 12:35 PM
Suit is amazing but my only issue is that they didn't manage to shadow out the eyeline area using the hood. Hopefully the camera work lets them have some moments like that
TheWalkingCuban - 2/11/2022, 12:37 PM
He i looks so old school and new at the same time… can’t wait
Franshu - 2/11/2022, 12:44 PM
@Spidey91 - Same here. I'm waiting for Sinkiewicz o release the textless version so I can have it as my phone's wallpaper
Dannywest - 2/11/2022, 1:03 PM
@Spidey91 - (chef Kiss) damn
dragon316 - 2/11/2022, 1:18 PM
@Franshu - you could do that yourself but that involves laptop do people still use laptops now besides me and people who work at office .,

Cut moonknight out of cover paste him on black background 😂😂😭😭😂 can’t use cellphones for that there not that smart to do such job
JFerguson - 2/11/2022, 12:45 PM
Woah. if you look real close you can see white pupils inside the white eyes as well. I wonder if that will be the case in the show as well.
TheManWithoutFear - 2/11/2022, 12:56 PM
Reading this made me remember what they did to Sharon Carter. I had managed to forget that.
WakandaTech - 2/11/2022, 12:57 PM
What a time to be alive and enjoy such epic live comicbook visuals
OmegaBlack13 - 2/11/2022, 1:08 PM
Never noticed how mummy-like the suit looks
ComicBookPsycho - 2/11/2022, 1:12 PM
It's a nitpick, but I hate that he has a face mask over his head-piece.
Nightmare - 2/11/2022, 1:32 PM

Live Action Bladerunner series in development at Amazon.
AmazingFILMporg - 2/11/2022, 1:33 PM
Looks incredible 😳
Reeds2Much - 2/11/2022, 1:43 PM
It's overdesigned, but it's in a way that works with the character instead of looking like there was a thousand bucks left in the budget that they had to burn.
