Oscar Isaac Talks MOON KNIGHT And Possibly Returning As Spider-Man 2099 In INTO THE SPIDER-VERSE 2
Dune star Oscar Isaac has teased plans for Marvel Studios and Disney+'s Moon Knight, while also weighing in on the possibility of returning as Spider-Man 2099 in Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse 2...
Oscar Isaac is quickly racking up comic book movie roles. While he was given some pretty lousy material to work with as En Sabah Nur in X-Men: Apocalypse, the actor has since played Spider-Man 2099 in Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse's post-credits scene, and will make his Marvel Cinematic Universe debut as Marc Spector in Disney+'s Moon Knight.
Fandom recently caught up with the actor and asked if we can expect to see him play multiple versions of the same character in the show (in the comics, Marc has several personalities). "Well, we’re definitely doing the Moon Knight story!" Isaac teased. "So, I’m gonna be really excited to talk about it ad nauseum next year."
Clearly, the Dune star isn't willing to give too much away just yet, and similarly chose his words carefully when asked about returning as Spider-Man 2099 in Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse 2 (rumoured to be titled Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse). "I would love to inhabit that character for more as well," he noted, "so let’s hope so!"
The site then put it to Isaac that he's now played his fair share of Marvel heroes and villains, but it's less about the franchise, and more about who the characters are for the actor.
"You know, I’d like to say that there’s way more intention behind what happens, but it’s reacting to what comes my way. So this opportunity comes my way, and I think, ‘Yeah, I’d love to do that.’' It’s not stuff that I’ve necessarily sought out. And so I’ve just been very lucky that that stuff kind of lines up in a way that that really speaks to my interests, and I get a chance to contribute."
Something tells us there's definitely more Miguel O'Hara in Isaac's future, while Moon Knight remains one of the most exciting projects heading our way from Marvel Studios in the next few years.
As for Dune, it's now playing in theaters and on HBO Max (read our review by clicking here).
