Oscar Isaac Officially Confirmed as Star of Marvel's 'Moon Knight'

Oscar Isaac is officially taking on another role in the MCU!

The 42-year-old actor, who has been long rumored to be in talks with Marvel, will officially board Disney+‘s series Moon Knight, the company confirmed on Thursday (May 27).

“‘WE ARE MOONKNIGHT’ – Oscar Isaac,” Marvel tweeted, a nod to the fact that his character in the series, elite soldier and mercenary Marc Spector, has multiple personalities, developed after he becomes the embodiment of Khonshu, the Egyptian god of the moon.

While it was not exactly a well-kept secret in Hollywood, this is still the first formal acknowledgement by Marvel that the series was moving forward with Oscar, who also played Apocalypse in X-Men: Apocalypse in 2016.

Further casting has yet to be announced, although there were reports earlier in the year that Ethan Hawke is reportedly the lead villain. May Calamawy is also reportedly involved.

The project was set to start filming in March in Hungary, with a 2022 release date. Another major Marvel casting was also just announced this week!
