As devoted Marvel Blog True Believers are well aware, rumors that Isaac would be playing the role of Marc Spector, A.K.A. Moon Knight, have been circulating for some time.
Back in October 2020, when a director for the upcoming Disney+ series was confirmed, we already suspected Isaac would be Spector, even if it hadn’t been officially announced.
Back in March 2021, it seemed like Marvel Studios boss Kevin Feige may have inadvertently confirmed the casting.
And in April 2021, footage of Isaac training for the part surfaced.
Nevertheless, Marvel Studios continued to play coy, refusing to officially confirm Issac in the role… until today, that is!
You already recognize Issac from many of his previous roles, perhaps the highest profile of which is that of Poe Dameron in Star Wars: Episode VII – The Force Awakens, Episode VIII – The Last Jedi, and Episode IX – The Rise of Skywalker.
That’s not the only place in Star Wars you can see Isaac, however!
The actor recorded new footage as Dameron for The Rise of the Resistance attraction at Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge.
And if you’re looking for Dameron in the pages of Marvel Comics, you’re in luck!
There’s a whole series starring the best pilot in the Resistance, written by Charles Soule and featuring art by Phil Noto and including work by tons of additional talented creators. You can read this whole run right now on the Marvel Unlimited App (plus, reading this run will help you better appreciate some of the moving pieces in the ongoing War of the Bounty Hunters comics event).
