I still can’t seem to wake up from this dream I’m making, that we were directing Oscar Isaac on a Marvel show. It really is happening.

“We’re going to be directing a few episodes of ‘Knight of the Moon’, a Marvel series with Oscar Isaac. I got this comic when I was 08 years old and haven’t stopped thinking about it since. AND [vamos trabalhar] with Mohamed Diab, brilliant director of ‘Clash’… I am tempted to thank an ancient lunar deity.

I got this comic book that was given to me when I was 8 and I’ve been thinking about it ever since. And with Mohamed Diab also above, director of genius of CLASH… Tempted to thank an ancient lunar deity.

Recalling that Diab will also act as showrunner, while the screenplay is being written by Jeremy Slate (‘Umbrella Academy’).
Recordings will be made in Budapest and London under the supervision of director of photography Gregory Middleton.
According to The Ronin, a site known for many scoops, production will launch in the summer of 2022, shortly after the launch of the ‘Ms. Wonder’.
Keep in mind that Marvel Studios has not released any official statement on the rumors.
For those who don’t know him, the Moon Knight is Marc Spector, a mercenary with various personalities – cab driver Jake Lockley and millionaire Steven Grant – who help him take on the criminal underworld. Soon it becomes a channel for Khonshu, an Egyptian moon god. The Moon Knight was created by Doug Moench and Don Perlin, and was introduced in Werewolf by Night # 32.
