Isaac can also be no stranger to working with Disney, as he starred within the current "Star Wars" trilogy as Resistance fighter Poe Dameron.

Oscar Isaac has long earned his geekdom following with appearances in the Star Wars and X-Men franchises. The character was originally created in 1975 and has often been referred to as one of Marvel's answers to Batman, as one of the identities taken on by Spector is a millionaire playboy named Steven Grant-very much like Bruce Wayne. Isaac recently also signed on to the HBO limited series Scenes from a Marriage at HBO, reuniting with his old Julliard classmate Jessica Chastain. His other notable film roles include "Ex Machina", "Annihilation", "A Most Violent Year", and "Drive". He's additionally set to star within the upcoming "Dune" movie reboot from Denis Villeneuve.

He is repped by WME, Inspire Entertainment, and Goodman Genow.

"They are now hearing this message from the Pope, and I think it can be life-saving and affirming for those people", said Butler. The movie examines his support for migrants and refugees, the poor, and his work on the issue of sexual abuse by Catholic clergy.

Being a former Marine and a former boxer, Moon Knight is an expert in hand-to-hand combat, and his super strength is directly tied to the moon itself: the fuller it gets, the stronger he gets. Moon Knight is still in its early phases, as Marvel and Disney still need to select a director. The MCU's latest streaming component has yet to properly kick off, but will do so in December with WandaVision, followed by Loki and The Falcon and the Winter Soldier.

The show was first announced by Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige during the D23 Expo back in August of 2019.

This news comes after confirmation of fellow Disney+ castings, such as Tatiana Maslany (Orphan Black) as Jennifer Walters/She-Hulk and newcomer Iman Vellani as Kamala Khan/Ms. Marvel.
