Oscar Isaac has clearly impressed the Disney hierarchy over the last few years, and Marvel Studios’ parent company are looking to extend that working relationship by casting the former Star Wars alum as Moon Knight, although a certain section of fans seem to have taken issue with the decision, despite the vast majority giving it a definite thumbs up.
