May Calamawy Joins Oscar Isaac’s ‘Moon Knight’ Disney+ Series

Has Marlene been cast?

Marvel Studios’ upcoming Moon Knight series coming to Disney Plus starring Oscar Isaac has added Ramy star May Calamawy.

On Friday, the Marvel Cinematic Universe expands to a new medium with WandaVision on Disney Plus. Marvel Studios has big plans for the streaming service, with Moon Knight one of the most anticipated on the slate. Moon Knight is planning to go under cameras in March, and so far, we know Oscar Isaac will play Marc Spector with Mohamed Diab, Justin Benson, and Aaron Moorhead on board to direct. It now appears that Isaac’s Marc Spector might have also found his Marlene with the addition of May Calamawy.

Per The Hollywood Reporter, Oscar Isaac will be joined by May Calamawy on Moon Knight. Calamawy is best known for her role in Ramy, but her role on the Disney Plus series is unknown based on the report from the Hollywood trade.

Who do you think May Calamawy is playing opposite Oscar Isaac in Moon Knight? Feel free to speculate in the comments section below!

In the comics, Marc Spector, a.k.a. Moon Knight, was a CIA agent-turned-mercenary making millions. His wealth from being a mercenary and investments land him anywhere between $50 million to $3 billion in net worth, granting him a suave Bruce Wayne-style life. Yet during his last mercenary job in Cairo, Spector was left for dead by a former colleague.

Spector dragged himself through the sands of the desert to the tomb of Konshu, the Egyptian moon god. There he was pronounced dead but resurrected at the hands of Konshu. The resurrection took a toll, however, as he developed multiple personality disorder. When he returned to New York, he created two new personalities — Steven Grant and Jake Lockley. Grant was the millionaire womanizer while Lockley was a cab driver.

It was after developing his other personalities when he took on the mantle of Moon Knight. Konshu granted Spector with increased physical capabilities and periodic prophetic visions at night, yet even Spector himself was unsure whether Konshu was yet another personality of his own creation. Even still, Moon Knight operates with an arsenal of technology, vehicles, and costumes to suit his needs.
