Deadline is reporting that Oscar Isaac is in negotiations with Marvel to star as the title character Moon Knight for the upcoming series at Disney+.
Introduced to Marvel comic fans back 1975, created by Doug Moench and Don Perlin, Moon Knight focuses on Marc Spector, a mercenary who’s left for dead in the Egyptian desert and saved by the moon god Khonshu. Even as Marc returns home and becomes a costumed crime-fighter, the series will explore whether he’s truly empowered by Khonshu or simply insane.
Jeremy Slater, who developed and wrote Netflix’s adaptation of the comic book property The Umbrella Academy, has been attached to develop the project and lead the writing team for the Marvel series.
No production date has been scheduled as of yet for Moon Knight.
