We're now almost three weeks away before Moon Knight makes its much-awaited premiere on Disney+ and there's a lot of hype now for the upcoming series as it looks like it is going to be very unique from the other MCU films and TV shows and it will introduce a brand new hero in the franchise. The exact plot details are still under wraps as of this moment, but a newly-released featurette gave us a clue on what we might have to expect in the upcoming series.

Marvel released a behind-the-scenes featurette for Moon Knight which gave us brand new footage on the upcoming series including Marc Spector's transformation to the titular hero. They also showed snippets of interviews with the cast, director Mohamed Diab, and executive producer Kevin Feige discussing what the upcoming series is about. The most interesting part is the quote from star May Calamawy, who plays Layla El-Faouly, in which she described the series as "Fight Club meets Indiana Jones."

You can check the featurette below:

It is interesting to hear from Calamaway that the series is like Fight Club and Indiana Jones. However, it does make sense given that Marc Spector is dealing with dissociative identity disorder similar to Edward Norton's character in Fight Club. Based on the footage that they've shown, it also looks like the series will travel to other parts of the world such as Egypt hench the comparison to the Indiana Jones films.

This should add more excitement to the series since it is becoming to look like it would be the darkest and most brutal MCU series or film to date given the tone of the character and what they've shown to us so far. It is awesome to hear that it's being compared to the two aforementioned films since it signifies the bar that the series might be at and it's now exciting to find out what they have in store.
