It looks like Oscar Isaac might be trading in his ancient Egyptian garb for a lab coat, for now at least. The star of the Disney Plus Marvel show Moon Knight, has supposedly been in talks with Guillermo del Toro about the Mary Shelley classic, Frankenstein.
The live-action Netflix film will be written and directed by del Toro who recently won the Academy Award for Best Animated Feature for his film Pinnochio. Others who are also in talks to star in the film include Andrew Garfield (Spider-Man: No Way Home) and Mia Goth (Pearl).
According to Deadline, “Insiders close to the pic caution that del Toro is still working on the script and no formal offers have given to any actors. But sources add that he has has met with all three and each is on board to star.”
At this time, it is unclear which roles Isaac, Garfield, and Goth will have. Although it is fun to speculate.
What’s next for Oscar Isaac and Moon Knight?
While Moon Knight has concluded after one season nearly a year ago, there have been little hints that the MCU character could possibly return. This includes Kevin Feige’s comment where he states, “I think there’s a future for that character as we move forward,”.
Moon Knight season 1 did conclude with Marc and Steven defeating Arthur Harrow and thus no longer in Khonshu’s debt. However, the same could not be said of the third personality Jake, who seems more than happy to continue Khonshu’s work.
We look forward to hearing more about del Toro’s film, as well as any possible updates about Moon Knight’s next MCU appearance.
