“I could picture [Moon Knight’s alter egos Marc Spector and Steven Grant] driving the MCU characters insane,” Diab told the publication. “Marc is speaking to someone seriously, and then he transforms into Steven, or Moon Knight transforms into Mr. Knight; I think it would be incredible.”

The series is shaping up to be one of Marvel Studios’ most intriguing and secretive ventures yet. Moon Knight appears to be a lot of fun based on what we’ve seen so far, and the cast agrees. Ethan Hawke who portrays the series’ villain, recently claimed that he and his co-stars were surprised by the amount of creative freedom they had on production. Hawke expressed his concerns about working for the company on Moon Knight to The Hollywood Reporter.

What Ethan Hawke Had To Say

For much of my career, the larger the budget, the greater the fear quotient, and since there was so much fear, there was a lot less innovation on set from the people in authority.” “However, there’s something about Marvel’s success that allows them to be confident rather than afraid,” Hawke told the trade. “I’m only assuming here, but there’s something incredibly fantastic that transpired between Kevin Feige and Robert Downey Jr. in the DNA between the producer-actor relationship.” They have a lot of faith in the actor’s abilities to contribute. That first scene is an excellent example of them utilizing your ideas to get you to watch the show and return back.

That first scene is a terrific example of them tapping into your creativity to get you to watch the show and contribute creative ideas. As a result, I was blown away. Oscar put everything he had into this role. While Oscar and I were rehearsing, I whispered to him, ‘You realize they’re being so gracious?’ They have such faith in us that if it doesn’t work, it will be our fault. We have no one to blame but ourselves.’ (Laughs.) As a performer, however, this is extremely powerful. Yes, you must labor in their kitchen, but they will allow you to do so.”
