The Moon Knight series is being written and developed by The Umbrella Academy‘s Jeremy Slater with episodes set to be directed by Egyptian filmmaker Mohamed Diab and Synchronic duo Justin Benson and Aaron Moorhead.. Golden Globe winner Oscar Isaac was previously in talks for the titular role, with a cinematographer for the series confirming earlier this month that the Star Wars alum was indeed set as the lead.

The project was officially announced by Marvel’s chief creative officer Kevin Feige last year along with two other MCU shows for Ms. Marvel and She-Hulk. This marks the iconic superheroes’ live-action debut who are also expected to be featured in future MCU films.

Created by Doug Moench and Don Perlin in 1975 for “Werewolf by Night” #32, Moon Knight is the alter ego of Marc Spector, a Jewish-American rabbi’s son who grew up to become a heavyweight boxer and then a U.S. Marine.
