Oscar Isaac has been quite excited with his first venture into the Marvel Cinematic Universe, as he’s been sharing the fun he’s had bringing Moon Knight to life. It seems that he also tried to be a bit sneaky, such as getting a meme into the series. Not only that, but he also wanted to sneak an f-bomb, which would’ve been the MCU’s first. He goes on to share the story with ScreenRant, where he highlights that:
My brother and I, there’s this meme that we think is really, really funny. It’s this English kid that’s got a tie on his head. He’s rapping, and then just a punch comes out of nowhere and punches him and he goes, “Oh, f**k, I can’t believe you’ve done this!” A lot of people know what I’m talking about. And so I was like, “We’ve got to find an opportunity to do that.”Oscar Isaac
They were certainly all-in to bring it to life, as he did quite a few takes with the f-bomb being dropped. Sadly though, it seems that Disney’s censors for their family-friendly streaming service wouldn’t quite let that through.
And this seemed like the perfect time to do it. So I did it. I did a lot of takes where I actually say, “Oh, f**k” and I thought, in Disney, because it’s TV or whatever, that you get one F-bomb. But ultimately, not even one. We don’t even get the one, so we had to change it. But basically, that is just my homage to that.Oscar Isaac
While it’s a shame that they couldn’t get it in, it’s no surprise. The show is still pushing the PG-13 rating to its limit but we don’t know the exact regulations. One f-bomb is allowed per film release and streaming services do have their own regulations. We’ll probably see more adult content, especially with Deadpool becoming the MCU’s first R-rated project moving forward. Perhaps Moon Knight gets a chance at a higher rating and Isaac can drop his f-bomb.
