The Hollywood Reporter brings word that Ethan Hawke is set to play the villain in Marvel’s upcoming Moon Knight TV series for Disney+, which will star Oscar Isaac as the title character. Hawke’s exact role hasn’t been revealed, but Moon Knight’s longest nemesis is Bushman, a former mercenary who turned on the hero over Egyptian gold.

The series also features actress May Calamawy. Production begins in Budapest this March. Jeremy Slater leads the writers room while directors include Mohamed Diab and the team of Justin Benson & Aaron Moorhead.

Moon Knight follows Marc Spector, a former Marine turned mercenary who has several personalities that allow him to fight crime. They include everything from a cab driver named Jake Lockley and a millionaire named Steven Grant. He was later revealed to be a conduit for the Egyptian moon god Khonshu. A common thread in his more recent comics is his multiple personalities and mental illness.
