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?

Remember when Ethan hawke said fucking uma thurman post-partum was "like fucking a glass of water"
I too would sell out if it meant I got to stare at Oscar Isaac for a few hours a day.

(This is a joke btw. IDK enough about this dude's career to know if this is considered selling out for him.)
This is fair.
First he gets Pedro Pascal into Star Wars, now he’s lured Ethan Hawke into the MCU? Oscar Isaac’s power!!
Even after all these years I still think of Tony Hawk when I see this man's name and do a doubletake.
I would like it if their characters kissed

In a hot fucking minute. Especially if he had a thick, well groomed beard at the time.
after passing on several comic book roles in the past
