Oscar Isaac will take the lead role in Disney+ superhero series Moon Knight, the actor has confirmed.
The Guatemalan-American actor, 42, will star as elite soldier Marc Spector, better known as Moon Knight.
The news was announced by Isaac on social media.
Alongside a selfie of the top half of his face against the backdrop of images from the comic books, he wrote: “WE ARE MOONKNIGHT.”
That was a nod to the superhero’s multiple personalities.
Isaac is known for roles in films including Inside Llewyn Davis, X-Men: Apocalypse and the latest Star Wars trilogy.
While no other casting information for Moon Knight has been announced, it was widely reported Ethan Hawke had signed on to play the lead villain.
Moon Knight, a six-episode series, is set to arrive on the Disney+ streaming service in 2022.
It will be part of phase four of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
