Marvel’s go-to guy for Egypt-based superpowers, X-Men: Apocalypse‘s Oscar Isaac may now be playing Moon Knight. Multiple outlets are reporting that Isaac is in talks to lead the eponymous Disney+ series about the superhero.
In the comics, Moon Knight (aka Marc Spector) is more or less a Batman. He’s a caped billionaire who goes around using high-tech devices and heaving thematic shuriken around in his fight against crime. The main difference is that Moon Knight develops dissociative identity disorder and originally had mild superpowers granted by the Egyptian moon god Khonshu. Classic Khonshu. Dude always hooks you up.
