Calamawy, best known from Hulu’s “Ramy,” will star opposite Oscar Isaac, though her role is currently under wraps. Isaac play the lead character, Marc Spector. The series expects to start shooting in March in Budapest.
Marvel Studios declined to comment.
Moon Knight, aka Spector, is a former CIA agent who was almost killed by a terrorist named Bushman, before his life was saved by the Moon God Khonshu. Four different personalities all fight for control over his body.
“Moon Knight” will be led by Jeremy Slater, who co-created Netflix’s “The Umbrella Academy.” Mohamed Diab, Justin Benson and Aaron Moorhead serve as the show’s directors.
“Moon Knight” is among 11 different series that Marvel Studios is producing for Disney+ over the next few years. The first, “WandaVision,” debuts on Friday.
