Unlike other well-known superheroes, Marvel has created a unique narrative about a self-destructive superhero who is fighting with himself and attempting to escape from everything. Actor Oscar Isaac stars in the show as Marc Spector / Moon Knight, a mercenary who has a dissociative identity disorder. 'Moon Knight' has been created by Jeremy Slater and director Mohamed Diab has helmed the web series which was released on March 30.

Evil Doctor Strange was first introduced in the Marvel animated series 'What if', where it was shown he apparently consumed numerous beings from different universes and gained mystical potencies that are as evil as it gets. After discovering her immense potential at the end of the Marvel Disney+ series 'WandaVision,' Elizabeth Olsen reprises her role as Wanda Maximoff, aka the Scarlet Witch. She now meets paths with Doctor Strange, who is attempting to maintain some kind of order in the midst of the multiverse's chaos.

Recently, the studio released the first trailer for the series, which stars Iman Vellani as Kamala Khan, aka Ms Marvel, a Muslim American adolescent growing up in Jersey City. In the trailer, Kamala is seen as an avid gamer and a voracious fan-fiction scribe with an oversized imagination -- particularly when it comes to Captain Marvel (played by Brie Larson in MCU). Yet Kamala feels she doesn't fit in at school and sometimes even at home until she gets superpowers like her idols.
