Moon Knight is one of Marvel’s cult characters. He debuted in 1975’s Werewolf by Night #32. He is Marc Spector, an ex-Marine turned mercenary whose multiple alter egos allow him to better fight crime. These alternate personas include cabbie Jake Lockley and millionaire playboy Steven Grant. In the later comics, he is a conduit for the Egyptian moon god Khonshu, while recently, he was a consultant who dresses in all white and goes by the name Mr. Knight. In recent years Moon Knight is a character with multiple personalities and a fractured mental state.

Hawke recently wrapped Robert Eggers’s Viking revenge saga The Northman with Anya-Taylor-Joy, Alexander Skarsgård, Nicole Kidman, Willem Dafoe, and Björk.
