Moon Knight, the Marvel miniseries on Disney+ starring Oscar Isaac, debuted again in 2022, however Hideo Kojima is simply getting round to watching it. A identified cinephile, it’s no shock Kojima would have the present on his backlog, and we’ve now been handled to a signature prolonged X (previously Twitter) post detailing his ideas. Whereas he says a good bit, the spotlight is his reward of Oscar Isaac, who he calls “pathetic and unattractive” within the present, clarifying that it is a “good factor.”

Kojima says he’s holding out to observe the whole lot of the collection till it releases on Blu-ray. We stan a king who loves bodily media, so fingers crossed that Disney does one other spherical of bodily releases for a few of its streaming exhibits. However he has watched the primary episode of the collection on Disney+. This comes after solely lately becoming a member of the service in an effort to watch his personal documentary, Hideo Kojima: Connecting Worlds, which is now obtainable to stream on Disney+.

Total Kojima shares that he’s a giant fan of the present, which he couldn’t wait to observe due to his love of Oscar Isaac, who additionally occurs to be set to tackle the function of Stable Snake in a Steel Gear Stable film that’s at the moment caught in improvement hell. “That is so unique! The paintings, the world, the course, the pacing! It’s in contrast to any hero film I’ve ever seen,” writes Kojima. “Above all, the principle character, Stephen, is lonely and weak.” Kojima then goes on to say “I had by no means imagined such a pathetic and unattractive Oscar Isaac. However that is the nice factor. Oscar Isaac succeeds in taking up this troublesome function.”

He’s so proper to say it! Isaac is the lynchpin of Moon Knight, which has a twisting narrative centered round protagonist Steven and his a number of personas. Isaac manages to provide distinctive definition to every side of Steven, particularly the “pathetic” aspect that makes the flip to violent vigilante a lot extra enjoyable to observe. I stay up for listening to extra about Kojima’s ideas on Moon Knight when he does end the collection, and hopefully earlier than then a second season of the present will likely be introduced. Till then, perhaps Kojima and Isaac can meet up and scan Isaac’s face to make him a personality in Demise Stranding 2. I’m pondering we name his character Pathetic and Unattractive Man.
