The Moon Knight role in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, according to Oscar Isaac, is the best career risk.
Oscar Isaac is one of the most well-known performers in the world, and he’s now a part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. His work straddles the line between tiny arthouse ventures and big-budget blockbusters aimed at a wide audience.
Before entering the Marvel Cinematic Universe, he was a part of two other major franchises. Despite this, it appeared that Isaac was looking forward to a change of pace, based on some of his recent comments. So, what was it about Moon Knight that drew him to take the part? Isaac built a name for himself by starring in original films directed by well-known filmmakers. Issac’s debut role was in the little-known Illtown in 1998, but it wasn’t until the 2010s that the world saw his skills on screen. Following minor roles in 2011’s Drive and 2012’s The Bourne Legacy, Isaac made his breakthrough the following year as the eponymous character in Inside Llewyn Davis, where his portrayal of a misanthropic folk star doomed to hilarious failure earned him global acclaim.
His subsequent two main roles in A Most Violent Year as a small-time oil company owner and Ex Machina, in which he played a Silicon Valley visionary with a deadly god complex and incredible dancing routines, won similar acclaim.
Because these roles have little in common, Issac’s ability to imbue them with charisma, gravitas, and emotional depth demonstrated that he was a talented actor.
So far, his experiences with blockbuster series have been mixed.
Isaac was only a matter of time until he became a franchise owner.
He went to a galaxy far, far away to play Poe Dameron, a resistance fighter pilot and the heir to the Han Solo archetype in the new trilogy. Poe’s story arc paralleled those of the three films as a whole. In The Force Awakens, his roots were fascinating and clumsily conceived.
In The Last Jedi, he was given new layers to his character that were both inventive and contentious. In The Rise of Skywalker, his plot was ill-conceived and quickly forgotten. Isaac did his best with the materials he had, but there was only so much he could accomplish.
And, as thrilling as his Star Wars experience was, it was still light years ahead of his time in the X-Men realm. In X-Men: Apocalypse, Isaac was the titular villain, but you can see how enthusiastic he was in the… Brinkwire Entertainment short news.
