While Disney and Marvel have, in their typical style, still to confirm Oscar Isaac as the lead for Moon Knight, we have had an update on that front thanks to cinematographer Gregory Middleton on Instagram. But slightly more solid is word that The Endless directors Justin Benson and Aaron Moorhead are joining the directing team for the show.

Clash filmmaker Mohamed Diab is the main shot-caller for the series, which, assuming his deal is completely locked in, will see Isaac as Moon Knight, aka Marc Spector, 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.

Jeremy Slater is heading up the writers' room on the show, and shooting should be starting this March in Budapest. As for Benson and Moorhead, their latest, Synchronic, arrived in the States last year and is scheduled to land on digital platforms in the UK on 29 January. And on the MCU TV front, WandaVision will start on Disney+ this coming Friday.
