Oscar Isaac’s Rumored ‘Moon Knight’ Role Potentially Confirmed by Cinematographer


The Marvel Cinematic Universe is stacked with releases of upcoming films and Disney+ exclusive shows with no signs of slowing down. One of the new releases that’s a bit farther off down the horizon is the Moon Knight television series.

Originally created by writer Doug Moench and artist Don Perlin, the fictional superhero made his first appearance via Marvel Comics back in the 1970s. Though Moon Knight has popped up in several animated shows and video games over the years, the upcoming Disney+ series will mark the character’s first live-action appearance.

As per Marvel, Marc Spector is “a complex vigilante who suffers from dissociative identity disorder. These multiple identities who live inside him are distinct characters in the series and will appear against a backdrop of Egyptian iconography.” The series will be directed by Mohamed Diab.

Since the show’s initial announcement, one of the longstanding questions has been: who will portray Marc Spector? Rumors began to surface late last year that the role had been secured by Oscar Isaac, but there was no mention of the casting announcement during the December 2020 Disney Investor Day presentation (despite the fact that the show itself was mentioned).

The news of Isaac’s role has seemingly now been confirmed in an Instagram post by Gregory Middleton, Moon Knight‘s cinematographer. Though it is worth nothing that Middleton appears to have accidentally tagged an unofficial account in the process (Isaac does not have an Instagram), he did state the news once again in a response to a fan’s comment on the post.
