Marvel has not officially announced Isaac's casting, though reports have been circulating for a few months that the Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker actor has taken the role. The show’s cinematographer, Gregory Middleton, also celebrated being attached to Moon Knight with a social media post that mentioned Isaac.
Marvel has a huge roster of Disney Plus shows on the way, including WandaVision, The Falcon and the Winter Soldier, Loki, Hawkeye, She-Hulk, and more. Moon Knight is one of the more obscure heroes, though Isaac's casting as should bring a few eyeballs to the series – and makes it one of the most exciting upcoming Marvel projects. If Disney Plus wasn’t looking packed enough, there’s also a huge amount of Star Wars shows in the works, too, including The Book of Boba Fett, Ahsoka, an Obi-Wan Kenobi series, and The Mandalorian season 3.
