Oscar Isaac could soon be gearing up to join the Marvel family!
According to Deadline, actor Oscar Isaac could soon be spearheading a brand new series coming down the pipeline from Marvel and Disney+
Specifically, the Star Wars vet is reportedly circling the starring role in Disney+ and Marvel’s Moon Knight.
The series shines a spotlight on the comic book character of the same name, who’s also known as Marc Spector.
Created by Dough Munch and Don Perlin, Moon Knight is a mercenary who also happens to be a millionaire entrepreneur. Like DC’s Batman, he uses his expendable income to beef up his arsenal in an effort to fight crime.
Moon Knight isn’t just a vigilante. In addition to using brawn and brains to fight criminals, he’s also got a few superpowers including increased strength, speed, and endurance, all of which are affected by the lunar cycle.
He acquires his powers during an archeological dig gone awry, which leaves him near death. It’s then that he’s approached by the Egyptian moon god, Khonshu, who offers up another shot at life. The catch is that Spector must now become Khonshu’s human avatar on Earth.
Currently, Oscar Isaac is the only star circling the project. Behind the scenes , however, the studios recruited Jeremy Slater to spearhead the series. Slater is no stranger to comic book adaptations, having recently developed and written Netflix’s hit series, The Umbrella Academy.
Currently, there’s no word on when we might expect to see the Moon Knight series debut via Disney+
