Moon Knight: Oscar Isaac was afraid of making a fool of himself by accepting the role

The actor confides that he has long asked himself the question: “Is this the dumbest or smartest thing I am doing? »

The mini-series Moon Knightreleased on Disney+ on March 30, included new actors in the MCU: Ethan Hawke in the role of Arthur Harrow, May Calamawy for Layla El-Faouly and of course Oscar isaac to interpret the vigilante [protecteur] night travelers in the words of the Egyptian god Khonshu.

About this role isaac confided in a ‘Table Ronde’ interview for The Hollywood Reporter that he had doubted a lot before accepting it. ” [J’ai pris Moon Knight comme le plus gros risque de ma carrière]. I thought ‘Man, you’re going to screw up with this thing’. Just how embarrassing it would be to wear a cape, you know what I mean? And then you find yourself in it. I said to myself ‘fucking me***, I’m really doing it’”.

Who is Scarlet Scarab, the new MCU superheroine from Moon Knight?

This Disney+ series is inspired by the comics of the same name, created by Doug Moench and Don Perlin. A discreet employee in a souvenir shop, Steven Grant suddenly suffers from memory loss and is haunted by visions of another life. He discovers that he suffers from dissociative identity disorder and that he shares the same body as a mercenary, Marc Spector. As the noose tightens on Steven / Marc, the two men, immersed in a perilous adventure among the powerful gods of Egypt, will have to find their balance in this double identity. The interpreter of the main role (or roles?) comes back to it again: “ The difficulty here was mainly ‘Am I able to do both?’ Does it fit into the things that matter to me, the reasons why I like to do this, is that when the alarm clock goes off in the morning I’d be excited to go to work, where would i rather be ‘I have to overcome this to get my check’. Then it seemed like an opportunity, maybe thanks to the TV landscape, where there seems to be more risk taking in doing this weird thing that happened to me: starring in a superhero movie “.

In the end, how does Moon Knight fit into the rest of the MCU?

Still, for many actors, starring in the MCU seems to elicit an immediate positive response. Not for Oscar isaacwho wondered for a long time: ‘Is this the dumbest or smartest thing I’m doing?’ Just making that decision was real mental torment “.

By checking this box, the interpreter of Poe Dameron has nothing more to prove in the world of the blockbuster: Star Wars, Triple Border, Dunes or X-MenIsaac has more than one string to his bow.
