At the end of March 2022, we will see the arrival of the latest series from the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) which carries the title Moon Knight. This series will introduce us to the famous Marvel antihero figure, played by Oscar Isaac. In addition, this series also involves Ethan Hawke as the actor of the main villain, namely Arthur Harrow.

Through a virtual press conference session on Monday (21/3), Mohamed Diab as director of Moon Knight said that Hawke had not read the script at all when he joined. This happened because Diab deliberately asked Hawke not to read the script. However, the reason Diab asked this was not because the script was bad, but because he wanted Hawke to be able to create his own character.

“He (Ethan Hawke) told me it was the first time in his 35-year career that he had signed a project without reading the script. And he really did. Thank you for your trust,” said Mohamed Diab at a press conference which was also attended by Ethan Hawke.

The presence of Arthur Harrow in this series will be a threat to the Moon Knight who gets his power from an ancient Egyptian god named Khonshu. If you are curious about Hawke’s action as Arthur Harrow, you can watch this series on the Disney+ Hotstar service starting March 30, 2022 with a total of six episodes released every week.
