Ethan Hawke in Marvel series ‘Moon Knight’
Ethan Hawke has been cast in a leading role in the “Moon Knight” series at Disney Plus. It’s not clear who Hawke will play. The main villain in Moon Knight has largely been Bushman, a mercenary who turned on Mr. Knight over Egyptian gold.
Hawke is a four-time Oscar nominee, including two for best supporting actor for “Training Day” and “Boyhood” and another two for best adapted screenplay for “Before Midnight” and “Before Sunset.” His other recent film roles include 2016’s “The Magnificent Seven,” “Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets,” and “Tesla.”
He most recently starred in the Showtime series “The Good Lord Bird” as abolitionist John Brown, which marked Hawke’s first TV starring role.
Marvel Studio‘s action-adventure series is about Marc Spector, a psychologically fascinating vigilante who has multiple identities living within him who all play their parts in the new series which is for Disney+. The show has an Egyptian iconography theme. Although the show will be filmed in other locations too, it is expected a large part will be filmed in Budapest.
Oscar Isaac, who stars in the Moon Knight series, is no stranger to filming in Budapest, as the majority of Denis Villeneuve’s Dune film was made in the capital city. Dune was made at ORIGO Studios, who are the only studio in Budapest to have the “Hollywood-standard” infrastructure for a series like Marvel’s so we believe filming will take place there. At ORIGO many major productions were filmed such as Dune, Blade Runner, Gemini Man, Inferno, etc.
