OTTplay Now You Know - Moon Knight

Moon Knight

Moon Knight, the new Disney+ Original series from the Marvel Cinematic Universe has become one of the most talked-about TV shows in the world. The series stars Oscar Issac as the titular hero who suffers from Dissociative Identity Disorder. He struggles between his two personas as Steven Grant, the mild-mannered Englishman, and Marc Spector, the American mercenary. His body is also used as a conduit by the Egyptian Moon God Khonsu to fight injustice through Moon Knight, a superhero with special abilities. So here are some trivia about this popular TV show.

  1. In an interview with the Empire magazine, Oscar Issac confessed that he invited his neighbor, the veteran actor Ethan Hawke, to join the cast. Hawke admitted that his co-star Issac convinced him to join, after understanding how committed and dedicated Issac was to the project.
  2. Moon Knight is the first MCU production since 2008’s Iron Man not featuring any previously established characters from the wider universe created by Marvel Studios.
  3. Oscar Issac’s cockney accent for his Steven Grant persona was not originally part of the script. Issac decided against using a posh West London accent to give Stephen a working-class background.
  4. To prepare for the role and to fully immerse himself into it, Oscar Issac read a memoir by Robert B. Oxnam titled A Fractured Mind. The memoir details the struggles of the author, whose multiple personalities plagued him as a result of Dissociative Identity Disorder or DID.
  5. Despite being an avid comic book fan and a comic book collector while growing up, Oscar Issac had never even heard of Moon Knight until he became involved with the Moon Knight TV series.
  6. Ethan Hawke has based his character, Arthur Harrow, on the infamous cult leader David Koresh, who founded the Branch Davidians. Koresh was a central figure in the ‘Waco siege’ that resulted in the death of 76 people, including women, children, and Koresh himself.
