The One You See Coming
First of all, several Twitter accounts have shared what is rumored to be test footage from Moon Knight, which could mean it’s our first look at the eponymous character’s costume!
Get a good look before it's gone! A 'supposed' first look at Moon Knight's costume in the upcoming Disney+ series. 'Moon Knight' will be played by Oscar Isaac.

If this is the case, it seems like the aesthetic will favor a sepulchral “mummy” vibe, with glowing eyes that call to mind the CGI technique used for Deadpool and Deadpool 2.
Is this really the costume for the show? Well, consider this, Marvel Blog True Believers: we knew that Isaac was going to be cast as Marc Spector for literal months before the official announcement came. Maybe Marvel Studios is really leaning into the whole “the one you see coming” with this series!
Meanwhile, the actor who will be playing opposite Isaac’s Moon Knight, Ethan Hawke, revealed how he got the gig: he was approached by Isaac in a coffee shop.
Hawke shared the fun anecdote on the Seth Meyers television show, Late Night with Seth Meyers. Apparently, Isaac and Hawke live only a few blocks away from one another, which lead to the chance run-in.
Ethan Hawke on how he joined ‘Moon Knight’ 🌙
“I was at a coffee shop. [Oscar Isaac] came up to me … I was like ‘Hey, cool, I really like your work. You’re amazing.’ He’s like, ‘Hey, want to be in the Moon Knight with me?’ I was like, yea”

My question is: is this a particular coffee shop where all these Marvel superheroes are hanging out? I think I’d like to get my caffeine fix there from now on!
