Oscar Isaac’s accent seemed good to me, even got to say ‘Bogeyman’ in a way that doesn’t make you check for a nearby sleazy disco!
I’m a bit unsure of the two distinctly different aspects to him though: The scarab stuff seemed really vague - he has it in his dream but then in the museum at the end the voice (of Mark?) is telling him to give him (Mark?) the scarab and we know he doesn’t have it, or it seems like he doesn’t? And where’s F Murray Abraham’s BIG VOICE guy now. It feels like a completely different mechanic, odd. Hopefully it will all make sense later…
No what i mean is, i know the character background, which you don’t.
And the reason there are two very different voices will naturally become clear.
I am trying not to get nerdy here and have not said this on the board yet but: i love moon knight. As in, I have read every single issue both of his own run since the character showed up in the 70s, and of the various times he’s popped up in crossovers and groups.
He is my very favourite comic hero character of all time (excepting Hellboy but that’s different).
So this series has felt quite an odd thing to be hyped about. So far, there are some bits I’m unsure about, but the way they’re playing it overall is great.
Right I’ve gone back and yes, I think you’re right but the sound is incredibly similar for me of the two voices (the one that says that and when he’s in the bathroom) so I just thought they were the same. Particularly as Hawke’s character had said he didn’t want the scarab just before and hadn’t seemed bothered about it
To be clear I am specifically hoping there is an explanation for F Murray Abraham’s snarky big voice only appearing in the Alps while his Mark personality only existing after that, no apparent crossover at all which I am reasonably hopeful there will be.
My only real niggle with this episode (again probably it’ll be explained) is if you phoned someone and someone with completely different voice answered who claimed they were someone else, would you actually just tough it out as “no it must be you”? Surely your first thing is to end the call and dial again in case something went odd. But obviously maybe he has a history of doing the voice thing so who knows.
Both of your wonderings/niggles will 100% be cleared up, at least one i imagine within the next episode. The other, depending on how quickly they ‘catch him up’, might take a while. (But they both have good/pleasingly bonkers answers).
I’d actually managed to avoid news about the series at all, so it’s been fun to see which villain they’ve picked for the series (although there might obv be more to come), and the character Hawke is playing is fucking great in the comics, so prettttttty hyped now about how this all comes together.
the only thing that bothered me a bit was after he runs away from ethan hawke and his goons he just… goes back to work? youve seen ethan kill someone and you know he’s in the building, but fuck, better do that inventory!
