Marvel: May Calamawy Joins Moon Knight
At one point, Oscar Isaac told cameras that he was not interested in bringing Poe Dameron back to Star Wars via Disney+.
However, bringing a Marvel character to Disney+ is more of Issac’s cup of tea. And he’s inviting some other actors, too.
Moony Knight Adds Calamawy
Marvel—faced with the tricky proposition of getting its audiences excited for the adventures of Moon Knight, a superhero best known for mental illness and driving a cab—continues to load up its upcoming Disney+ series about the character with high-profile talent. The producer has already tapped Oscar Isaac to star as the title character, which should get a fair number of butts in seats, and will now flesh out the show’s cast with a regular role for Ramy’s May Calamawy.
In an exclusive, The Hollywood Reporter’s Borys Kit explained:
Calamawy plays the sister of Ramy Youssef in Ramy, the well-regarded and Emmy-nominated comedy-drama series on Hulu. The show, about an American Muslim-Arab navigating opposing cultural communiiteis, is working on its third season. She recently wrapped the indie comedy Together Together that stars Ed Helms.
Okay, okay. I can hear you asking: “Who the heck is Moon Knight?”
This might help.
