Moon Knight: Marvel fans stunned by Oscar Isaac’s ‘simply terrible’ British accent in first trailer for series
The first trailer for Marvel’s forthcoming series Moon Knight has dropped – but fans are expressing scepticism about star Oscar Isaac’s British accent.
Isaac plays Marc Spector in the series, a man with dissociative identity disorder who becomes the conduit for the Egyptian moon god Khonshu.
Ethan Hawke co-stars as cult leader Arthur Harrow. Moon Knight will debut on Disney Plus on 30 March.
Viewers shared their reactions to the trailer on social media, with many commenting on Isaac’s unconventional English dialect.
“Oscar Isaac‘s British accent is simply terrible, that s*** hurt my ears,” wrote one person.
“My mind is split between appreciating how amazing Moon Knight looks and trying to digest Oscar Isaac with a British accent,” wrote another.

Oscar Isaac's Dick Van Dyke-esque British accent is singlehandedly going to make this immensely watchable, isn't it? https://t.co/SQNKOdMgX3
