Isaac had been previously linked to the role back in October, however nothing was confirmed. Isaac is best known for his role as Resistance fighter Poe Dameron in the new Star Wars trilogy and has also appeared in “X-Men: Apocalypse.” He is also known for starring in the Coen brothers film “Inside Llewyn Davis,” which earned him a Golden Globe nomination in 2014.
“Moon Knight” is a new series created for Disney+. Directed by Mohamed Diab, the action-adventure features a complex vigilante who suffers from dissociative identity disorder. The multiple identities who live inside him are distinct characters who appear against a backdrop of Egyptian iconography.
A premiere date on Disney+ has not been announced yet.
