Oscar Isaac Thought Moon Knight Will Ruin His Career

Disney+ Moon Knight became a commercial success and one of the biggest shows in the world when it was released on March 30. Oscar Isaac, on the other hand, was quite hesitant about the show and thought it would tank his career.

Isaac confessed to The Hollywood Reporter about his true sentiments regarding the show. He admitted it was the biggest risk he has done.

Moon Knight felt that way. Like, ‘Man, I’m going to go down hard with this thing.’ Just the level of embarrassment that it would be, once you throw on a cape, you know what I mean? And you’re out in front of it. It’s like, ‘Holy s***, I’m really doing this thing.”

Based on the Marvel comics of the same title, Moon Knight follows the life of Steven Grant, a gift shop employee who experienced blackouts and memories of another life. He developed a dissociative identity disorder and eventually shared a body with the mercenary Marc Spector.

The actor also explained what it was like committing to a comic book character role:

The trick with this one was, like, ‘Can I do both?’ Can you smuggle in the thing that matters to me, the reason why I like doing it, so every morning when that alarm goes off, I could be excited to get to work and not just be like, ‘I’ve got to get through this to get that check or whatever.’ And it seemed like this was an opportunity, maybe because of the TV landscape, where there seems to be a lot more risk-taking, to do this bizarre thing that happened to be in the case of a superhero genre film.”

Isaac also reflected on the risks of signing a contract for a Marvel project. He was hesitant to take the role.

Yeah, it was so much about, like, ‘Is this the stupidest thing? Is this a smart thing?’ It was such mental torment just to make the decision,” he contemplated.

Moon Knight has its ups and downs, but there are hints about its return in the future. Sarah Goher, the consulting producer, said it is only a story that they have just started, and the ending really projected that it is ‘to be continued’.
