Oscar Isaac portrays a fairly benign London museum worker who discovers he has other identities in the new Marvel series Moon Knight. He’s also Marc Spector, a worldly soldier, and Moon Knight, a vindictive vigilante and the Egyptian god Khonshu’s avatar. But, as Moon Knight implies in its third episode, Marc/Steven may be hiding another personality, one that is even more brutal and vicious.
Jake Lockley in the Comic books:
Jake Lockley has a particular role in Moon Knight’s plot in the Marvel comic. And, while he hasn’t appeared in live-action yet, there are some hints that he may be lying underground while Steven Grant and Marc Spector fight for power. Jake Lockley is a pretty tough cab driver who has his finger at the heart of the murky underworld and a slew of illicit connections. Spector’s larger issues with his identity began with this addition of Lockley to his assortment of identities.
Moon Knight Episode 3 – Release Date & What To Expect
Fans are certainly speculating when Moon Knight Episode 3 will be released after such a dramatic conclusion to episode 2. Well, fans can expect the new episode on Wednesday, April 13 on Disney+ at around 12 a.m. PST, or 3 a.m. EST.
It’s implied in episode three of the Moon Knight series that neither Steven nor Marc were responsible for a particularly violent confrontation that took place. There may be a third personality, as the closing credits of Moon Knight visibly suggest with three representations of Steven’s face. Jake Lockley is almost guaranteed to be that character. However, for now, it is unclear exactly what sort of involvement Jake Lockley will have in the series.
Related: Oscar Isaac, star of the Moon Knight, claims that his brother acted as his stand-in when he had to interact with himself.
During the press conference for “Moon Knight,” Oscar Isaac discussed the difficulties of playing his subject’s dissociative identity disorder. Steven communicates with his alter, Marc Spector, through reflections, which is one manner in which the series depicts this disorder. During this conference, Isaac revealed that during these sequences, he cast his brother Michael Benjamin Hernandez, beside him.
“It’s the closest thing to me there is on Earth,” Isaac said. “He came in and he would play either Steven or Marc. Even did the accent and everything. So that was really helpful to have someone that’s not only a great actor but also shares my DNA to play off of.”
