Yesterday news broke that actor Oscar Isaac was in talks to play Marc Spector, aka Moon Knight, in an upcoming Disney+ series. Now Marvel Studios has found a director for it.
According to Deadline, Mohammad Diab has been chosen as the series’ director. Diab is best known for helming the film Crash, which was an official selection at the 2016 Cannes Film Festival.
Jeremy Slater, who developed The Umbrella Academy for Netflix, will be Moon Knight’s showrunner. There’s no official date for when the series will go into production, but some believe it could be before the end of the year. If that does happen, there’s a chance we could see the show hit Disney’s streaming service sometime in 2021.
Moon Knight first appeared in Marvel Comics all the way back in 1975. Spector’s backstory is that he was an elite soldier and mercenary. He was resurrected by an Egyptian god of the moon named Khonshu, who he would serve as an avatar for and fight crime. After appearing in the series, it is expected that Moon Knight will appear in future films in the MCU.
