Now that his time in the Star Wars universe is all wrapped up, Oscar Isaac might be joining a different Disney franchise: the MCU!
The actor behind Poe Dameron is in talks to star in the Disney+ series Moon Knight, based on the Marvel Comics hero.
Moon Knight is just one of a few new Marvel shows that are coming to Disney+. Last year, Disney announced the impending series premieres of The Falcon and the Winter Soldier, Loki, and, perhaps most importantly, WandaVision.
Here's what we know about Moon Knight: Marc Spector is a mercenary who almost dies after he is betrayed on a job in Egypt, but he's saved by the Egyptian god Khonshu in exchange for becoming his avatar on Earth.
We don't know too much about the show other than that, but if history is any indication, the MCU knows how to handle eccentric millionaries who fight the forces of evil.
It's the perfect role for Oscar, who is no stranger to playing roguish heroes making up for their past (Poe), or rich guys who have a little too much time on their hands, like his character in Ex Machina.
Another exciting tidbit is that, in the comics, Moon Knight is involved in the House of M storyline, which in turn was hinted at in the WandaVision trailer.
I'll be honest: I had some misgivings when Marvel and Disney announced that so many movie characters would be getting their own shows, but I'm officially very excited now.
Whatever it looks like, it'll be great to see Oscar take on this new role!
