The latest Disney Plus series Moon Knight is to take place in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, concluded earlier this week. Fans and critics alike have been hyping everything from tone to performance.
Isaac, who played the show’s titular protagonist, especially had his work fruit for him, as he spent the majority of the show portraying two different personalities in Marc Spector and Steven Grant. His deft execution did not go unnoticed as well. Isaac was a candy to watch the whole way through.
Director Mohamed Diab Says Oscar-Worthy Scene Was Cut From Season Finale
Mohamed Diab says, there’s one scene of Isaac’s that stands above the rest. And he was happy to reveal it in an interview with The Hollywood Reporter. However, the scene was cut from the final product, so we viewers never got to witness it for ourselves.
“The irony is that my favorite scene of his got cut. It was in episode six. As great as everything else was, he topped it with something even better. He confronted his mom in a white void, and he was going back and forth between Marc and Steven. And oh my god! That scene by itself is an Oscar-worthy performance.”
“Hopefully, Marvel releases that scene one day because Oscar was a genius.”
Fans are equally as impressed by Isaac’s performance, taking to Reddit since the season finale hit Disney Plus earlier this week! In that finale, Isaac put everything he had into his performance, as both Marc Spector and Steven Grant. Fans celebrated Steven coming back from the dead in the Duat before the duo returned to the real world. This preceded an epic final battle between not only Marc and Arthur Harrow, but also the Egyptian gods and goddesses Ammit, Khonshu, and Taweret, as their Avatars unleashed their full power.
The amazing episode of “Moon Knight” will probably have fans talking for quite some time. The episode contains a good amount of buzzworthy scenes to dissect. For one, a new alter-ego named Jake Lockley gets introduced. But with this, we also get a completely new superhero with Layla El-Faouly (May Calamawy). Even though not all of it was made into the final cut, Diab claimed that this part of the lead character’s journey will be told as fully as possible.
Oscar Isaac pulled in an awesome performance in “Moon Knight,” convincingly acting out Spector’s different alter-egos present within the character. Maybe, one day that particular scene will somehow reach the fan. At least hoping so!
