Just a day after news broke about the casting of Moon Knight himself, it seems that the series has also found itself a director.

Just a day after Deadline broke the news that Oscar Isaac was in talks to take on the titular role of Moon Knight, news of another major addition to the team has been made. According to Deadline, director Mohamed Diab has joined the Disney Plus series. It’s unclear whether he would be directing the entire series or just the first episode or two at this time though.

Diab is an Egyptian writer and director who has previously directed two films, Clash and 678, of which Clash was nominated for the “Un Certain Regard” award at Cannes Film Festival in 2016.

Coming just a day after the news that Oscar Isaac is in talks to join the project as Moon Knight himself, it seems that the series is really beginning to take shape behind the scenes.

MCU’s TV domination takes form with Moon Knight announcements

For those who are unsure of who Moon Knight is, the character’s real name is Marc Spector, but he has several other names as well. Not because they’re aliases though. No, Marc is schizophrenic and he often interacts with the Egyptian moon god Khonshu.

Honestly, Moon Knight’s comic book history is all over the place, but there are several great places to start, such as Moon Knight by Brian Michael Bendis and Alex Maleev.

This news is just the latest news in the Marvel TV world as it comes just a couple of weeks after several announcements of castings and directorial hires for both Ms. Marvel and She-Hulk. The She-Hulk casting subsequently led to confusion though after Tatiana Maslany, who was reportedly cast as She-Hulk, denied the reports that she would be boarding the series. Despite that though, this is an exciting time for Marvel TV as the first Disney+ Marvel Cinematic Universe show, WandaVision, is set to hit the service before year’s end.
