Marvel’s Moon Knight is one of the new TV shows that Marvel Studios has got in development along with WandaVision, Falcon and The Winter Soldier, Hawkeye, Loki, She-Hulk, and Ms. Marvel.

Variety has the news that Oscar Isaac (Inside Llewyn Davis, Ex Machina, Dune) is in talks to play the lead character, Marc Spector. This is very exciting as Isaac is a superb actor and the character of Moon Knight has many different dimensions to him. He is not just another Batman type…although there are many similarities.

Created by writer Doug Moench and artist Don Perlin back in 1975.

In the comics, Marc Spector is a former boxer, CIA agent, and mercenary, who found himself near death after being betrayed by his employer, Raoul Bushman, when they stumbled upon an archaeological dig, which Bushman intended to loot for profit. As he lay dying, Spector was approached by the Egyptian moon god Khonshu, who offered him a second chance at life in exchange for becoming his avatar on Earth. As a result, Spector was resurrected and given superhuman abilities. Upon his return to the United States, he invested the money that he had accumulated as a mercenary to make a fortune, and became the crimefighter “Moon Knight.” He also created multiple identities, most notably that of millionaire Steven Grant, to distance himself from his mercenary past, and of taxicab driver Jake Lockley, to remain in contact with the street and criminal element.

So much potential for great television with both the character and Oscar Isaac should he take the role.

It was previously announced that Jeremy Slater will serve as the writer, executive producer, and showrunner on “Moon Knight.” As with all the Marvel-Disney Plus shows, it will be produced by Kevin Feige’s Marvel Studios.
