The Real Reason Moon Knight Was Oscar Isaac’s ‘Most Challenging’ Shoot

With the release of director Denis Villeneuve’s “Dune” — featuring Oscar Isaac as Duke Leto Atreides — on the horizon, the actor stopped by Variety’s Awards Circuit Podcast (via Variety) to discuss the film and a handful of other topics. Of course, “Moon Knight” managed to sneak its way into the conversation, prompting Isaac to share some tidbits about his experience working on it. 

“I found so much room to do things that I’ve never done before and had been curious about and wanting to do,” he said, recalling his early collaborations with Marvel Studios’ president Kevin Feige as particularly encouraging. “I told him I’m going to come in with these big ideas, and if you don’t like them, that’s fair. And immediately, we saw it all.”

At the same time, Oscar Isaac made it clear that “Moon Knight” wasn’t all fun and games. He called it “the biggest workload I’ve ever had in my career and most challenging,” adding that the amount of work they squeezed into the eight-month-long shoot was astounding. Even in the face of such a mammoth workload, however, Isaac “couldn’t wait to get to set and work.”

“Moon Knight” will join the ever-expanding Disney+ library sometime in 2022, and when it does, surely all of Oscar Isaac’s hard work, as well as that of the entire cast and crew, will prove worth it.
