Oscar Isaacs’ British accent in ‘Moon Knight’ has the internet to speak – The Hollywood Reporter

"I think I'm losing it."

The first trailer for the Disney + series Knights of the Moon fell Monday night and as with everything that comes from Marvel Studios, the show looks sleek and spectacular. Among the positive reactions to the trailer, however, social media was locked on star British Isaacs ’British accent.

Apparently portraying a haunted Steven Grant who can not tell the difference between his "waking life and dreams", Isaac's kind-of-London-must-be-southeast-probably-nowhere-cor-blimey-guv accent is distracting enough that it is become a Twitter talking point, more than Ethan Hawke's quite excellent wig. However, there is no denying that both actors embrace the chaos.

Twitter wagging compared Isaacs' attempts with Don Cheadle's iconic accent in Ocean's franchise and Dick Van Dyke ind Mary Poppins, long considered the gold standards in poor British accents.

Summarizes some of the reaction, wrote a user on Twitter, "Oscar Isaacs accent in the #MoonKnight trailer is literally like 'hello guvna, what are you dewin ?!'

Isaac plays Marc Spector in the Disney + series, which draws inspiration from the modern comics, which depict the character's struggle with dissociative identity disorder (the probable explanation for the British accent as the character switches between personalities). Knights of the Moon will take place against the backdrop of modern and ancient Egypt.

The actor has previously said of the series, "we do something that is completely different and that does not follow the same ... logic of what many superhero movies do."

Hawke plays the villain he modeled after David Koresh, the leader of Branch Davidian's religious cult, who died during the 1993 Waco siege.

Umbrella AcademyJeremy Slater is the lead author with Mohamed Diab, the filmmaker behind the Cannes drama Clash, who directs the six-episode series alongside Justin Benson and Aaron Moorhead.
