Due to the global pandemic, the MCU was hit with an 18-month delay. Things kicked back off last month with the release of WandaVision, the first of ten movies and shows set to release this year. Next year seems to show no signs of slowing down with another dozen being released in 2022. One of those shows in the hugely anticipated Disney+ show, Moon Knight which will feature Ethan Hawke, who has revealed his reason for joining the MCU.
Since the MCU began in 2008, it has always found ways to not only progress the stories of its established characters but also for new and upcoming ones. The same goes for the actors who play these characters. One such actor is Oscar Isaac who is expected to play Marc Spector aka Moon Knight. And one of his co-stars has explained how much of an influence he has been, even though he will not debut on our screens until next year.
In a recent interview with The Ringer, Ethan Hawke revealed his reasons for joining the Disney+ series. It was revealed that Marvel Studios have attempted to get Hawke on board several times, but the actor was asked what it was about this project that made it “the one” to join.
Hawke also spoke about the director of the show Mohamed Diab, who is tackling a superhero that is shrouded in his native countries mythology.
Hawke then went on to speak about how big the superhero culture is and how he would like to use his work within the genre to help improve it.
Something to note is the fact that Oscar Isaac has not officially been cast as Marc Spector, but this interview, all but seems to confirm it. Ethan Hawke has reportedly been cast as the villain of the series, but which character he is playing has still not been confirmed.
The show is due out on Disney+ next year and filming thought to begin layer this year.
