New trailer for Marvel’s Moonlight Knight reached earlier this week and consensus is it looks pretty awesome. Between the zigzag split of personality, the Egyptian image, and the overall dark tones, it looks like the first Disney+ superhero show of 2022 will kick things off on a great note.
One place where fans are more divided is lead actor Oscar Isaac’s British accent. Some find it weird, some find it wonderful, others find it… fine. When Moonlight Knight When it was first announced, I doubt any of us envisioned the most divisive aspect of the show would be the lead actor’s voice. Here’s the trailer, in case you want to watch it again.
The internet focuses on Oscar Isaac’s British accent
Isaac, who was born in Guatemala but raised in the United States, has never sounded like this for any of his projects. Happily, the internet is here to help us find out how we feel about it:
Of course, not everyone hates it, because the Internet is a vast ocean of differences:
Moon Knight is a multi-personality character. The main character we spend time with in the trailer is Steven Grant, who on the show appears to be working at the gift shop of a museum in London. I’m very interested in the following user, who pointed out that this could be the hallmark of Steven Grant’s personality. I expected different voices for each character’s personality, if not completely different accents.
Oscar Isaac mocks his own British accent
Even Isaac himself let out a bit of a joke as he was reacting to the trailer with lead actor Ethan Hawke. “In waking life,” he mimics the trailer. “Please sir, may I have some more?”
If even actors can joke about it, I think we can too.
Whether you love it, hate it, or roll your eyes at the voice of Oscar Isaac in Moonlight Knight trailer, we’ll just have to wait and see how his performance plays out for the rest of the show. But given the scope and talent of the actor as well as the breadth of the role, he could end up killing it. Until then, let the jokes reign.
