Marvel Studios will release the next event series with Moon Knight on March 30 and a brand new actor has been revealed joining Oscar Isaac (Grant/Spector) and Ethan Hawke (Arthur Harrow). Oscar-winner F. Murray Abraham has been officially announced as the voice of Khonshu, the Egyptian god that gives Marc Spector the powers of the Moon Night.
The casting update comes from a Marvel press kit on the Disney press website.
Abraham is best known for his recent work on shows such as Homeland and Mythic Quest, with his film credits consisting of Scarface, The Grand Budapest Hotel, Star Trek: Insurrection, Mimic, and Amadeus. The Syrian-American actor famously won Best Actor in 1984 for his role of Antonio Salieri in Amadeus.
When Steven Grant, a mild-mannered gift-shop employee, becomes plagued with blackouts and memories of another life, he discovers he has dissociative identity disorder and shares a body with mercenary Marc Spector. As Steven/Marc’s enemies converge upon them, they must navigate their complex identities while thrust into a deadly mystery among the powerful gods of Egypt.
