Starring Oscar Isaac as Marc Spector, an ex-soldier who suffers from dissociative identity disorder, the action-adventure series set against the backdrop of modern and ancient Egypt finds the spectral superhero’s multiple identities thrust into a deadly war of the gods.

He becomes the conduit for the Egyptian moon god Khonshu, which only further exacerbates Marc’s anxiety over his mental illness.

The almost two-minute-long trailer, set to the backdrop of Kid Cudi's “Day 'n' Night”, introduces viewers to the protagonist who isn't able to differentiate between his normal life and his dreams.
