  • The new clip, which has been mostly seen in previous trailers, is titled “Contact Lens” and features a humorous situation between Oscar Isaac’s Steven Grant and an elderly woman in an elevator.
  • Grant appears spooked by an ominous ghostly figure approaching him before it gives way as the woman appears.
  • The clip gives us our best look yet at Khonshu, the moon god that gives Moon Knight his abilities.
