Oscar Isaac Is irritated about the Deleted Scene in Moon Knight ...

As Marc Spector and his alternate personalities evolved, Oscar Isaac''s Moon Knight gave a narrative from Marvel Studios that explored the actor''s profound psychological conflicts as well as the cult action for which the MCU is famous.

While this series provided a unique superhero story that remained mostly distinct from the larger MCU, the Moon Knight team had plenty of material to keep on the table in post-production. This included more imagery of the Egyptian skyline as well as an unused clip putting Arthur Harrow in the spotlight, although another one has made headlines for its deep look into Marc Spector and Steven Grant''s turbulent past.

In episode 6, director Mohamed Diab explained a deleted scene in which Marc and Steven agreed to deal with their abusive mother, showing how both characters put their emotional past behind them.

Isaac himself discussed a scene in which he thought the team would have kept in that final episode, which might have helped Marc and Steven''s character development even further.

Oscar Isaac on Deleted Moon Knight Moment

Oscar Isaac, who plays Johnny Cash on Gold Derby, spoke with him on a deleted scene that he regretted resigning from the sixth episode.

He shared details of a scene that would have ties his abusive mother to Egyptian goddess Ammit, and would have given more depth to the phrase "Later''s gators" Steven Grant uses. This would have shown Ammit expressing her desire to pre-judged Marc and Steven before their entire story unfolded, adding another layer of joy to their mother''s situation:

"And in some ways, we tried to squeeze it further. There was a great scene at the end of [Episode] 6 that just wasn''t quite fit in the rhythm of it, and that was one scene that, for me, would have moved in with mother and Ammit again, because then she says, "Crocodile." So for me, it was very important that even if the audience doesn''t get it literally, that there is an even subtextual emotional connection to everything that''s

Isaac reveals how to handle two different characters in scenes such as that, mainly two characters that must see what the other one is going through in real-time:

You know, when you see it while you realize that you know two distinct characters, it was difficult to understand just how complicated it would be, even if you''re ready for it. "It''s possible that you might know two of these characters separately, but sometimes I''d be playing two more characters in the previous interaction."

Isaac introduced Steven and Marc to his work in Episode 5 in which they discussed each other''s childhoods and learned about "too much of their specific viewpoint" through each moment. It was a challenge for Isaac, but it''s one that he described as "such a fantastic mountain to scale:"

"So in one way in the scene for example, in Episode 5, where Steven watches Marc from the past break down in front of his parents house, and then Stevens watches Marc turn into Steven from the present, and then Steven watches Steven turn into Steven from the past. "You know, and all that, we shot on the same day. All of them have to have their very specific point of view, their emotional truth to what''s happening in that moment, and also holding the whole story in one hand to make sense. So this kind of twist

Moon Knight LeavesBig Moment on the Table

Moon Knight''s last two episodes sucked into Marc Spector''s mind more than the previous four entries, exploring the trauma that he had to deal with as a kid. Even with this extensive exploration of his mental state, providing much-needed insight into mental health issues within this book, Oscar Isaac seemed to want to see things go even further in that direction.

As the season draws to a close, Moon Knight''s last episode largely revolved around a physical battle between Ammit, Khonshu, Taweret, and their three Avatars. While the episode provided some significant milestone moments, such as May Calamawy''s transition into the MCU''s first Arab superhero, Marc''s trauma was almost pushed aside for the time being.

If a second season of Moon Knight is in development, then Marc and Steven will have the opportunity to close in terms of their respective ailments.

Season 1 of Moon Knight is now available on Disney+.
