Moon Knight will explore a new corner of Marvel Studios’ ever-expanding franchise. The story of a mercenary that lost his mind and believes he is possessed by the Egyptian god Khonshu promises a thrill ride unlike any other in the franchise. Plus, he has close ties to the supernatural horror corner of Marvel, which opens up a lot of new venues for the media franchise. Oscar Isaac will take on the role of Marc Spector and explore a different kind of Marvel hero. It looks like he also had quite the voice in bringing this character to life.
In an interview with Variety’s Awards Circuit Podcast, the actor discussed his work in the industry with the upcoming films The Card Counter, Scenes from a Marriage, and Dune. Of course, they also used the chance to ask him some questions about his work on the Disney+ series. Luckily, he did offer some insight and shared how his work experience was with Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige.
Speaking with Kevin [Feige], I told him I’m going to come in with these big ideas, and if you don’t like them, that’s fair. And immediately, we saw it all. I found so much room to do things that I’ve never done before and had been curious about and wanting to do. I could not wait to get to set, and it was the biggest workload I’ve ever had in my career and most challenging; by the sheer amount of stuff we had to do in eight months, and even yet, I couldn’t wait to get to set and work.Oscar Isaac
The old saying does state that if you do what you love you’ll never have to work a day in your life. Sadly, he doesn’t go into detail about what ideas he was able to implement throughout the project’s development but it’s always promising to know he spearheaded the project. It shows a commitment to the character and series, which hopefully opens up to many more appearances in the future. He may have also had a say in the addition of Egyptian director Mohamed Diab, who’ll bring a unique vision to the Marvel franchise. Here’s hoping Disney+ Day might offer a glimpse at the series.
