There’s a ton of mystery surrounding Marvel Studios’ forthcoming Moon Knight. From Ethan Hawke‘s Dr. Arthur Harrow to lead Oscar Isaac‘s accent in the trailers for the series. One of the biggest mysteries surrounding Moon Knight, however, has been who May Calamawy was playing in the highly anticipated series.
Calamawy was the second cast member to be announced for the series and many assumed she would be playing the hero’s love interest. As it stands, though, Marvel Studios seemed keen to keep her character’s identity quiet. Thanks to the latest issue of Empire magazine, though, we now know she is playing Layla El-Faouly, and not Marlene as many had expected.
The magazine also unveiled a photo of Calamawy alongside Isaac’s Grant/Spector as they prepare to scale a cave together. Layla appears to be a character created for the series, and it’s currently unclear if Marlene will be making an appearance on the Disney+ series. Of course, with how little has been revealed regarding Moon Knight as of now, anything is possible.
Moon Knight, which stars Isaac, will debut on Disney+ on March 30.
