Now that WandaVision has officially premiered on Disney+, there are a whole lot more Marvel Cinematic Universe series to look forward to on the streaming service, including Moon Knight. The upcoming show is expected to star the Star Wars sequels' Oscar Isaac in the titular role and more exciting casting news came pouring in this week. It was recently revealed that Ethan Hawke would be playing the show's main villain. Currently, it's unclear which sinister character he'll be portraying, but many have already guessed it could be Dracula, which would fit considering Mahershala Ali's Blade is also in the works. In classic comic book movie fashion, artists are already creating art with Hawke in the role.
"Ethan Hawke as Dracula is something I didn't know I needed til now," @britedit wrote on Instagram. You can check out their take on Hawke as Dracula below:

Moon Knight directors Aaron Moorhead and Justin Benson recently commented on their new role and getting to work with Isaac. "I still can't quite wake up from this dream I'm having, that we're directing Oscar Isaac in a Marel show," Moorhead tweeted. "It's really happening." Benson added, "We're directing some episodes of Marvel's Moon Knight starring Oscar Isaac. I had this comic handed to me when I was 8 years old & haven't stopped thinking about it since. And with Mohamed Diab also on it, genius director of CLASH...tempted to thank an ancient lunar deity."
