Isaac plays the title character Moon Knight, aka Marc Spector, a mercenary who has numerous alter egos — cabbie Jake Lockley and millionaire playboy Steven Grant — in order to better fight the criminal underworld. But later he was established as being a conduit for the Egyptian moon god Khonshu. Most recently, the character was a consultant who dresses in all-white and goes by the name Mr. Knight.
It’s not clear who Hawke will play. The main villain in Moon Knight has largely been Bushman, a mercenary who turned on Mr. Knight over Egyptian gold. Hawke most recently starred and created Showtime/Blumhouse’s The Good Lord Bird.
THR first had the news about Moon Knight.
