May Calamawy has joined the cast of Marvel’s upcoming “Moon Knight” series set for Disney+. She will star opposite Oscar Isaac who will be portraying the titular hero.
The Baharani actress is best known for her Emmy-nominated role in the Hulu series, “Ramy.”
“Moon Knight” is a new series created for Disney+. Directed by Mohamed Diab (Clash), 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.
Indie horror filmmakers Justin Benson and Aaron Moorhead have been tapped to direct several episodes of the series. Jeremy Slater (Umbrella Academy) will lead the writers room.
“Moon Knight” is set to begin shooting in Hungary in March, and premiere on Disney+ in 2022.
