Oscar Isaac explains to EL COLOMBIANO what the new Marvel series is about

For Guatemalan actor Oscar Isaac, this is not the first time he has met millions of devoted followers. His role in the Star Wars saga, as the pilot Poe Dameron, generated the recognition of a whole legion of admirers of the intergalactic saga. He now arrives at the Marvel Cinematic Universe (UCM), another space full of enthusiasts, with a new superhero called Moon Knight, Caballero Luna in Spanish, with whom he intends to go beyond entertainment.

Who is Moon Knight?

Moon Knight is a comic book character that began in 1975 and was created by Doug Moench, one of the most prominent American writers for his work on Batman.

To approach the character, you first have to meet Steven Grant, “a very kind, funny man who wants to connect with people, but can’t because he doesn’t know. In addition, his life is not his, he has sleep problems, blackouts and part of his memory is lost, ”says Isaac.

Over time, this character discovers that he has a dissociative identity disorder, “and therefore shares his body with an ex-mercenary named Marc Spector who is in the service of an Egyptian god (called Khonshu), the story is very simple indeed (laughs). )”.

Isaac plays both characters: Grant and Spector, and that involved special preparation because he gave both of them a special and differentiating touch.

“With Steven I wanted to find his voice and his physicality, a character that is not seen much in the UCM because of his humor and when I found him I dedicated myself to looking for the counterpoint, Marc is more typical in these characters, darker, deeper”.

As part of the preparation process for both, Isaac extensively researched his psychology, addressing mental health issues in order to achieve responsible representation.
