Moon Knight is quite the talk of the town right now. This Disney+ show is fascinating fans everywhere. The show’s success is in part contributed by the solid performance of Oscar Isaac. Isaac plays Moon Knight, Marc Spector, and Steven Grant in the series.
Oscar Isaac has had a great career up till now. Perhaps the only blemish in his record is his role as The Apocalypse in the 2016 movie, X-Men: Apocalypse. We take a closer look at his role in that movie and discuss whether his performance in Moon Knight redeemed him. What is your opinion of the actor? Let us know your opinion in the comments section below.
How Was Oscar Isaac as The Apocalypse?
Isaac played the role of En Sabah Nur, a.k.a. Apocalypse in the movie X-Men: Apocalypse. Apocalypse was the chief antagonist in that film. However, his role in that film was botched. To be fair, the blame lies solely with the filmmakers.
Apocalypse is one of the greatest villains in the X-Men universe. It was crucial to get his personality right in the movie. That apparently did not happen. His grandiosity, aptly portrayed in the animated series, was missing. If the part of the villain was written better, Isaac could have done much better in that movie. Alas, that wasn’t the case. Isaac is a great actor, as we would see again in the Disney+ series. (more on that later). It is unfortunate that things turned the way they did in the X-Men movie.

Did Isaac’s Role in Moon Knight Redeem Him?
After the debacle in X-Men: Apocalypse, things took a huge turn for the actor. He was cast in the Disney+ series and went on to give an amazing performance there. The series, at the time of the writing of this article, is 4 episodes long.
Nevertheless, Isaac has managed to impress with his acting in this short period of time. He plays the challenging role of Moon Knight, Marc Spector, and Steven Grant in the series. His versatility as an actor is on full display. He is able to juggle a whole range of emotions convincingly. This proves, without a doubt, how great of an actor he is. Clearly, he has truly redeemed himself with his performance in this series.
