‘Moon Knight’ Adds French Actor Loic Mabanza & Sharon Carter Expected To Appear

Marvel’s Moon Knight series is still filming and we have some brief updates on the MCU project expected to debut on Disney+ in 2022.

Moon Knight, aka Marc Spector (Oscar Isaac), a mercenary who has numerous alter egos — cabbie Jake Lockley and millionaire playboy Steven Grant — in order to better fight the criminal underworld. But later he was established as being a conduit for the Egyptian moon god Khonshu. Most recently, the character was a consultant who dresses in all-white and goes by the name Mr. Knight. 

There were rumblings that WandaVision writer Peter Cameron was working on an unannounced Marvel Studios series, but Cameron himself refuted this on his Twitter account by clarifying that the project has been already announced by Marvel. We’re now hearing that project is actually Moon Knight and Cameron is expected to be contributing/writing on the superhero series alongside Jeremy Slater (Fantastic Four, The Umbrella Academy) and Beau DeMayo (The Witcher, The Originals, The Witcher: Nightmare of The Wolf).

Emily VanCamp‘s Sharon Carter is said to be appearing, although, it’s unknown if it’ll be a simple brief cameo or something more. Carter was revealed in The Falcon & The Winter Soldier as the show’s villainous puppet master, The Power Broker, as she spent a lot of time growing a criminal empire in Madripoor.

Oscar Isaac’s Marc Spector once worked for the C.I.A. and may have a history with Sharon Carter, who left S.H.I.E.L.D. to work with the C.IA. at the end of Captain America: The Winter Soldier.

French actor/model/dancer Loic Mabanza is working on the series, however, his role is unknown or how big it will be. You can see below that the French actor has some impressive action chops thanks to his dance background.

He was tagged in that viral video featuring Oscar Isaac’s fight training for Moon Knight, but it looks like he’ll be involved beyond a stunt player.

Mabanza isn’t the only French actor involved with Moon Knight as Gaspard Ulliel’s (Brotherhood of The Wolf, Hannibal: Rising, A Very Long Engagement) British agency revealed he is playing Midnight Man.

We’re also hearing that May Calamawy is playing a character that will be action-focused, whether that is friend or foe of Marc Spector remains to be seen. It’s still unclear who May and Ethan Hawke (reportedly the villain) are officially playing on the show, but we’ll likely get some sort of announcement from Marvel Studios in the near future.

The directing team consists of Mohamed Diab, Justin Benson, and Aaron Moorhead.
