Variety brings word that Oscar Isaac to start in the Marvel Series “Moon Knight” at Disney Plus.
“Moon Knight” tells the story of Marc Spector, an elite soldier and mercenary who decides to fight crime after he becomes the human avatar of Khonshu, the Egyptian god of the moon.
The role would mark a return of sorts to Marvel for Isaac, who previously starred in “X-Men: Apocalypse,” though that film was released prior to Marvel reacquiring the film rights to the “X-Men” franchise. Isaac is also no stranger to working with Disney, as he starred in the recent “Star Wars” trilogy as Resistance fighter Poe Dameron.
Marvel had no comment at this time. Isaac is one of the most sought-after actors working today.
In addition to his roles in “Star Wars” and “X-Men,” he is known for starring in the Coen brothers film “Inside Llewyn Davis,” which earned him a Golden Globe nomination in 2014.
