With a live-action Moon Knight series in development for Disney+, it looks as if the show may have found its headline act.
Via Deadline, Oscar Isaac is reportedly in serious talks about taking on the lead role of Marc Spector in Moon Knight. Isaac, of course, is a major genre favourite thanks to the likes of Ex Machina, Annihilation, X-Men: Apocalypse, and his role as Poe Dameron in the Star Wars sequel trilogy.
For those not familiar with the Moon Knight character, he is the alter-ego of the aforementioned Spector. After a near-death experience, the Egyptian god of the moon brought badass mercenary Marc Spector back to life and made him the hero Moon Knight. In addition to his merc background, Spector just so happens to be a millionaire with a slew of handy gadgets to help him fight the bad guys – which has often led to comparisons to a certain Dark Knight.
At times, Spector has had certain superhuman abilities such as increased strength and speed, and he also often takes on the identities of cab driver Jake Lockley and money-man Steven Grant as part of his plan to keep an eye on the criminal element.
Moon Knight is just one of several Marvel-based shows happening over at Disney+, with WandaVision, Captain America and the Winter Soldier, Ms. Marvel, She-Hulk, Hawkeye, and Nick Fury also on the way.
As ever, expect more on Moon Knight as we get it.
