Oscar Isaac and Ethan Hawke are spending a lot of time together working on the Moon Knight Disney Plus series in Budapest.
As filming continues on Moon Knight in Budapest, both Oscar Isaac and Ethan Hawke were recently spotted training in the city together. The Disney Plus series will see Isaac play Marc Spector opposite Hawke’s currently unknown villain, but with the recent intense training videos showing off Isaac’s stunt-work it looks like Moon Knight will have to face off against some pretty intimidating threats.
The new video comes from ‘djnuklear’ on Instagram, who spotted Oscar Isaac and Ethan Hawke running together through Budapest, clearly keeping up their fitness levels for their respective roles in the Moon Knight show. The Instagram user also spotted the two out training last month, so clearly the two actors have been spending plenty of time together. Since they’ve been hanging out quite a lot it’ll be interesting to see what their dynamic is like when the series eventually arrives on the streaming service. Take a look at the video below.

What do you want see from the Moon Knight show? Who do you think Ethan Hawke is playing in the series? Sound-off in the comments 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.
