The superb, dashing, Star Wars and Dune star is in talks to play the lead in Moon Knight, which is without doubt one of the upcoming Marvel Studios reveals heading to Disney+. Deadline first reported the information which, sure, means Isaac is prone to be part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Within the comics, Moon Knight is normally Marc Spector, a person who infiltrates the legal underworld utilizing a number of personas and is powered by the Egyptian moon god Khonshu. As is normally the case, completely different writers and artists have put their very own spin on the fundamental concept and it’s anticipated the present will do the identical.

And whilst you might need to neglect this, Isaac isn’t a stranger to Marvel. He performed Apocalypse in the disastrous X-Men: Apocalypse. Nevertheless, below the umbrella of Marvel Studios and its president Kevin Feige, it appears very possible Moon Knight will likely be a lot, a lot better than that.

The primary batch of dwell motion reveals—WandaVision, The Falcon and Winter Soldier, Loki—are both in manufacturing now or already accomplished.
