Oscar Isaac Claims 'Moon Knight' Is Marvel's First "Character-Study Since 'Iron Man'"

Moon Knight star Oscar Isaac has big words for the upcoming Marvel series, stating that the show is Marvel‘s first “character-study” since Robert Downey Jr.‘s Iron Man.

Speaking to Empire, the actor firsts revealed that he wanted to move away from major franchises after working on Apocalypse and the Star Wars trilogy. “Often on these big movies it can feel like you’re building the plane on the runway,” he explained. “The idea of getting back to ‘handmade’ films, character studies… I was desperate for that feeling,” Isaac continued, and he felt that “‘handmade’” feeling with Moon Knight. “And it’s the first legitimate Marvel character-study since Iron Man,” he said, adding, “I thought, ‘Maybe I can hijack this thing. Maybe this is the chance to do something really f*cking nutty on a major stage.’”

Isaac further shared that the character’s mind was a big selling factor for him. “What I love most about this thing is that it’s an exploration of a mind that doesn’t know itself,” he said. “A human being that doesn’t know his own brain. I found that really moving: what the mind is capable of as far as survival. But the workload was massive: the technical challenge of embodying these different characters, physically, the way I manifest my body… It required a lot of energy.”

Moon Knight premieres March 30.
