Daveed Diggs is a bit of a left field choice, but he's a very good actor. He was in the original cast of Hamilton and he's also been on Blackish and is the lead on the Snowpiercer tv show.

Daveed Diggs is crazy-talented. Glad he is at least "on the radar" of the MCU casting people- it'd be great to see him in The MCU at some point. Oscar Isaac is also hugely talented, and I think will make an excellent Moon Knight. He also seems to be a great guy, and it's always nice to see deserving people continue to get opportunities.

Deadline is reporting that Clash helmer Mohamed Diab will be directing Moon Knight, the Marvel series for Disney+ based on the comic book hero.

Diabs film Eshtebak (Clash) was an official selection at the 2016 Cannes Film Festival, in the Un Certain Regard category.

Actors do that all the time, it just means there's an NDA or not all the details have been ironed out yet. There are rare exceptions, but if things are far enough along that Deadline and THR are reporting on it, it's usually legit.

It's all word play. They say they haven't been "cast" but that doesn't mean they haven't reached some kind of agreement with reps from both sides contractually dependent on certain requirements being met by one or both sides. As long as there's at least one condition that could render a contract null & void they can say nothing has been finalized.

As far as Isaac, no his performance isn't what sank the X-Men ship. He is a fair actor, he can only work with a script he's given. It coulda been worse.....a hella lot worse. Kroll woulda been a straight kick in the scrote. We need to all think our lucky stars that didn't happen.

Had it not been for the costume and the bad script. He would have made a great Apocalypse.

You're right. I was going for a cheap laugh, but Isaacs wasn't the problem with that movie.

Never heard of Daveed but Kroll would be a disaster. Not that he isnt talented but thats about as far from the source material as you can get.

Yeah I wasnt impressed with his Star Wars role but he is magnificent in Ex Machina and a lesser known film called 10 Years. I suspect he would do decent in this role.

although Id take Kroll over the rumored (and dreaded) Daniel Radcliffe.. I shudder to think how that would have turned out..

Yeah neither of them looked even a bit like what I picture Marc to look like, at least Isaac could hopefully pull it off, but since I haven't seen either of those films I'll have to check out some clips, maybe feel better about this possibility. And yeah, Daniel Radcliffe...gives me nightmares thinking about it.

Thats the whole point of my post. "In Negotiations"is not the same as "Has Been Cast". If nothing's been signed yet they could always go another way. This how misinfomation and rumors get spread, and then the people doing it just can't admit they jumped the gun. We have a need to be "first" in this culture instead of being Accurate.

Whoever gets it, however it gets done, I hope it does the Moon Knight Marvel Legends figure justice. That thing is Magnificent.

Yeah, no thanks. I have yet to see this guy in a role that isn't a "snarky bad-boy" roll, plus there's that stint as Apocalypse... they could find someone better for Marc. Or find a no-name actor that just looks the part and is going to give it his all.

Of course if those were some of their other considerations I guess I'd rather have Oscar Isaac, but only if it's down to just those three.

Well everyone, just be careful about this news....after all Tatiana Maslany was supposed to have been cast as the She-Hulk but she herself is saying this isn't true.

Actors do that all the time, it just means there's an NDA or not all the details have been ironed out yet. There are rare exceptions, but if things are far enough along that Deadline and THR are reporting on it, it's usually legit.
