Moon Knight star Oscar Isaac showed off his brutal stunt practice for the upcoming Disney Plus series in an impressive new video.
With Moon Knight gearing up to start production very soon, a new video has surfaced online of series lead Oscar Isaac as he practices a series of brutal stunts for the role. Little is known about the actual plot of the Marvel Studios show, but it will see Isaac face off against Ethan Hawke who signed on to play the main villain in January earlier this year. Meanwhile, May Calamaway has also joined the cast in an unknown role. And now we’ve got a look at the intense action we can expect to see in the series.
The video was posted by the Mad Gene Media Instagram account, which is the production company formed by Oscar Isaac and his wife, screenwriter Elvira Lind. It shows Isaac working with a number of other stunt coordinators as he works through vicious fight sequences, using a fake knife as part of the routine. It’s not clear if Moon Knight himself will be dishing out this kind of savage justice in the series, but this video is certainly something to be excited about since Isaac seems committed to doing fight choreography himself. Take a look at the video of Oscar Isaac 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.
