"Oscar Isaac's attempt at a British accent is very interesting. Of course by interesting, I mean shit."
Listen to this article
Moon Knight, which was written by The Umbrella Academy's Jeremy Slater, centres on mercenary Marc Spector (played by Oscar Isaac), who gains superhuman abilities after becoming a human vessel for the Egyptian god Khonshu.
Marc also is living with dissociative identity disorder and has frequent blackouts that mean he can’t tell the difference between his dreams and reality. One of his personalities is Steven Grant, a British gift shop employee who is struggling to keep his condition under control.
Although the epic trailer was packed full of dramatic moments, including Ethan Hawke in a wig playing cult leader Arthur Harrow, people couldn't stop talking about the Oscar's bizarre British accent (Oscar is Guatemalan-American, btw.)

Oscar Isaac's Dick Van Dyke-esque British accent is singlehandedly going to make this immensely watchable, isn't it? https://t.co/SQNKOdMgX3— jacob! (@LongMacVampyr) January 18, 2022
Moon knight is American sorry. Unbelievable that they fuck up the “what if Bruce Wayne went crazy” stuff so they can make Oscar Isaac do the worst British accent I’ve heard https://t.co/2SxDECjY4H— Accordion Tomato (@DumbGuypod) January 18, 2022

Moon Knight’s gonna be a 5’8” mummy man running around punching people and occasionally talking in a kinda British accent played by Oscar Isaac I can’t imagine a more entertaining timeline— Red Lantern Reviews (@RedLReviews) January 15, 2022
Moon Knight looks awesome.— Alexis Boucher (@alexis_b82) January 18, 2022
Giving Oscar Isaac a British accent feels like a very personal attack.
If you want to see Oscar's accent in full swing you won't have to wait too long. Moon Knight is scheduled for release on March 30 and will consist of six episodes.
