Star Wars actor Oscar Isaac seems to have confirmed he's starring in the Disney+ TV adaptation of Moon Knight.

A video was posted to his production company's Instagram account showing the actor in stunt training, but it was the caption that gave the biggest hints that he is about to become Marvel's next leading man.

The caption to the video that show's Isaac throwing some people around a gym, featured the hashtag "#TheOneYouSeeComing", which happens to be a direct quote from the character in the comic book.

It was announced last year that Marvel and the Poe Dameron actor were in negotiations for him to star as the titular hero, but nothing had been confirmed by those in charge.

Not a lot is known about the series so far, but according to those in the know, the character is Marvel's answer to Batman.

In the comics, Moon Knight, aka Mark Spector, is a former boxer, CIA agent and mercenary who, after being betrayed and killed, is given a second chance at life by the Egyptian moon god Khonshu.
