While fans excitedly await the debut of Oscar Isaac as Moon Knight, it has still remained a mystery who would play the Egyptian god Khonshu. Now Disney has confirmed that Academy Award-winning actor F. Murray Abraham will voice the character.
Created for comics by Doug Moench and Bill Sienkiewicz, Khonshu first appeared in 1980’s Moon Knight #1. The god of the Moon, Khonshu, lived in the interdimensional realm of Celestial Heliopolis unable to enter the Earthly plane. So in order to instill his will, Khonshu chooses a champion to serve him.
Abraham won the Academy Award for Best Actor in 1984 for his role in Amadeus. He has also done voice work in a number of projects, including The Isle of Dogs and How to Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World.
Jeremy Slater, known for his work on Netflix’s Umbrella Academy adaptation, is set to develop and write the Marvel Studios series. Moreover, Mohamed Diab (Clash), Justin Benson, and Aaron Moorhead (The Endless) will direct various episodes of Moon Knight as well. In addition to Isaac and Abraham, the series also stars Ethan Hawke, who is rumored to be playing another god.
