Marvel Studios: Oscar Isaac Is ‘Moon Knight’ Star

Oscar Isaac is officially returning to the Marvel fold.

Seven months after Variety first broke the news that Isaac was in talks to star in Marvel Studios’ upcoming Disney Plus series “Moon Knight,” Marvel has finally confirmed that the 42-year-old actor will headline the project.

Naturally, Marvel did so via a tweet that reads, “‘WE ARE MOONKNIGHT’ – Oscar Isaac” — a sly tip of the hat to the fact that Isaac’s character — elite soldier and mercenary Marc Spector — has multiple, distinctive personalities, which he develops after he becomes the embodiment of Khonshu, the Egyptian god of the moon.

This will be the actor’s second swing at an Egyptian-based Marvel character, after he played Apocalypse in 2016’s “X-Men: Apocalypse” for 20th Century Fox.

Isaac will next appear in the sci-fi epic “Dune” for Warner Bros., and he played ace pilot Poe Dameron in the most recent “Star Wars” trilogy for Marvel’s sister company Lucasfilm.

Jeremy Slater is the head writer and “Moon Knight,” with Mohamed Diab, Justin Benson and Aaron Moorhead directing.

More to come.
