There are a lot of really cool Disney+ MCU series coming up, one of them being Moon Knight. The first official casting for the series was Ethan Hawke in an undisclosed role but there still hadn’t been an official announcement of Oscar Isaac as Marc Spector/Moon Knight…until today.
After Isaac shared a post featuring him posing in front of some Moon Knight slips from the comics it is now official that he is indeed playing the mysterious moonlit vigilante and I am excited!
I’ve seen Oscar Isaac in a bunch of movies and I’ve seen his range as an actor. His best acting performances, I felt, have been in Ex Machina and Annihilation where he really transformed as an actor and I didn’t feel like I was looking at a variation of Poe Dameron. Seeing him become a Marvel superhero is going to be a nice change of pace (and a huge upgrade from his cringe-worthy/hilarious performance as Apocalypse in X-Men: Apocalypse) and I’m really interested in what he’ll bring to the MCU.
My personal pick for the actor to play Spector was Adam Driver who I frankly think is a far better actor than Isaac. I really thought he would be able to embrace the character in a really profound an exciting way…but Isaac got it instead and I just hope he does justice to this character whose Wiki page is fascinatingly dark. We’ll see what happens.
