Isaac is expected to swap the galaxy far, far away for the MCU
Okay, chalk this one up a masterstroke of casting. It is being reported that Star Wars alumni Oscar Isaac is swapping the galaxy far, far away for the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
Disney+ has reportedly tapped Isacc to slip into the iconic costume to lead the Moon Knight series as the titular character. In the original Marvel Comics, Moon Knight is the alter ego of Marc Spector. Spector is a former CIA operative who is resurrected by the Egyptian god Khonshu after being double-crossed by his employer. Once restored to life, Spector is bestowed with superpowers and uses the alter ego of a millionaire playboy.
Moon Knight has been one of the Marvel superheroes waiting in the wings for some time and his arrival on Disney+ cannot come quick enough. Marvel has been lagging behind the Star Wars universe on the streaming platform with WandaVision and Falcon and the Winter Soldier all forced into delay by the COVID pandemic. That being said, Marvel is yet to officially confirm this casting – so until we have an official press release take this report with a pinch of salt.
However, if this report is anything to go by, Marvel is looking for a big name to lead the Moon Knight series, and Oscar Isaac fits the bill to perfection.
What do you guys think? Is Isaac the right call for Moon Knight?!
