Ethan Hawke joined Marvel's Moon Knight because he wanted to work with Oscar Isaac

Back in 2018, Ethan Hawke criticised the overpraising of the superhero genre in film, saying that 'Logan' was good but the rest of it was just big business that wasn't good for film.

Oh, how the worm turns. A couple years down the line, and Hawke was announcing his role in the MCU series Moon Knight alongside fellow superior thespian, Oscar Isaac.

So what changed his mind?

Well, according to his interview with The Ringer, it was said thespian, Oscar Isaac!

"A lot of it… is Oscar to me, and the big fat cheque Marvel offered, to be honest with you," said the actor when asked why he decided on Moon Knight after passing on several comic book roles in the past. "I find him to be a very exciting player in my field. I like what he’s doing with his life. He reminds me of the actors, when I first arrived at New York, that I looked up to. Oscar’s younger than me, and I like the way he carries himself, and I like the way he thinks. And in general, good things happen when you’re in the room with people that you like the way they think, right?!"

ONTD, would you compromise your beliefs for a chance to work with Oscar Isaac?

Wait. Did I sleep through Oscar Isaac being confirmed as Moon Knight?
There was a post not too long ago (I think, time has no meaning these days lol)
There was 'in talks' but never actual confirmation until now I guess.
Is this an Ethan Hawke oops? Lol.
It’s a similar situation with Tatiana Maslany where the trades break the news and the stars usually play coy when asked about it in the press until Marvel has an event where they can make a big announcement. Brie Larson was asked over and over again if she was Captain Marvel and she always said no until they announced her at Comic-Con
I'll compromise my butthole for him
who wouldn't risk it all for oscar isaac tbh

Duh, him, Pedro and John
Lmao I love his honesty
I recommend that everyone follow Oscar's wife Elvira Lind on Instagram as she and her feed are quite delightful, and their house is gorgeous!
Why does she have a classic Hollywood name? It’s nice.
Not sure, but she's Danish and famous in her own right as a screenwriter. She's great!
Yup if we want social media updates from him, you get them from her. I have not regretted following her instagram lol.
Bless. Stan ha. 😍
Logan is a shit movie with no story, people just love gratuitous violence
but she called him daddy 😭😭🙄 such a lame ass movie
I don't even remember that movie being particularly violent.
i'm always surprised when people name it as the best superhero movie ever. i found it okay, but also it's not the type of story i really wanna watch superhero stuff for? it was way too depressing and it was painful to look at that version of professor x.
Same Ethan 👍
I can't stand Oscar Isaac, so no, I definitely would not.
I’ve never seen Oscar Isaac in anything but that’s a long winded way for Ethan Hawke to say he needs to make money
compromise me king
I used to hate him when he was being this brooding thespian but then he started showing up in all sorts of crap, especially horror crap, and now I like him, lol. He's good in good films and good in bad films.
And your film with Selena Gomez was good for film?

Wait was it Selena or Hermione? Or are there two movies?
They fuggin’
