Marvel Studios dropped the first trailer for its Disney+ series "Moon Knight" during halftime of the Rams-Cardinals wild card game on Monday.

The series stars Oscar Issac as Steven Grant, described as "a mild-mannered gift-shop employee, who suffers blackouts and memories of another life." After discovering he has dissociative identity disorder (DID) and shares a body with mercenary Marc Spector, they must "navigate their complex identities as they're thrust into a deadly mystery involving the powerful gods of Egypt."

"I can't tell the difference between my waking life and dreams," says Issac -- sporting a legit British accent -- as Steven Grant toward the top of the trailer, set to Kid Cudi's song 'Day 'n' Nite."

Grant becomes increasingly disconnected from reality, until we hear Ethan Hawke's mysterious cult leader encourage Steven/Marc to "embrace the chaos," at which point he transforms into the titular superhero.

The series also stars May Calamawy. Jeremy Slater is the head writer for the series, while Mohamed Diab, Justin Benson and Aaron Moorhead directed the episodes.

"Moon Knight" premiers March 30 on Disney+.
