Ethan Hawke talks about the prospect of his villainous Moon Knight character returning for future Marvel Cinematic Universe projects.
Ethan Hawke says fans could see his Moon knight the character appears in future Marvel Cinematic Universe projects.
During an interview with IGN, Hawke – who plays evil cult leader Dr. Arthur Harrow on the show – was asked if he or his co-star Oscar Isaac (who stars in Steven Grant/Marc Spector/Moon Knight) were taking on the project. as a simple miniseries, or if they expect to see these characters return at some point. “The good news is it might be both,” Hawke replied. “It lives and breathes by its own merits, it works like a limited series — and if people are engaged and excited about it, it could be the origin story of something bigger.”
Hawke and Isaac have both said that one of the factors that pushed them both to Moon knight was his disconnect with the larger MCU. Isaac said the show had “a similar approach” to the premiere The iron Man movie, since the cast and crew are “building this thing from the ground up” while the rest of the Marvel continuity “isn’t part of the story – [Moon Knight] stands on its own terms, and it’s really an internal exploration of [the character]Hawke added, “I was so happy when we first talked about it that it was offline because it gives us so much more freedom. And as a member of the public, that’s what I want, I don’t want to know what’s going to happen.”
Executive producer Grant Curtis reiterated Moon knightThe lack of ties to the MCU. He described the series as a series about self-discovery. “It’s a story of identity and self-discovery,” he explained. “The journey that Marc Spector takes throughout our show is: Who am I? And how do I reconcile parts of my past, my present and my future potential that I don’t necessarily agree with? Accepting our baggage and learning to live with ourselves is what we all face on a daily basis.”
Even still, fans and creators have their own hopes for Moon Knight’s future in the MCU. Isaac said he wanted to see his anti-hero team up with other darker Marvel characters to form the Midnight Sons. “Imagine, with Punisher, Ghost Rider, Daredevil… I think it would be a really interesting band,” he said. Likewise, co-star May Calamawy, who plays Layla El-Faouly, expressed interest in seeing Moon Knight team up with fellow magical hero Doctor Strange.
Moon Knight premieres March 30 on Disney+.
