Most of the series set to premiere on Disney+ have multiple directors attached to bring them to life, and this news confirms the same strategy for Oscar Isaac’s Moon Knight.
The Hollywood Reporter revealed that Marvel Studios is bringing indie directors Justin Benson and Aaron Moorhead in to direct the Disney+ series Moon Knight. They will join Mohamed Diab, who is attached to direct the series as well.
Morehead took to Twitter after the news broke to share his excitement
I still can't quite wake up from this dream I'm having, that we're directing Oscar Isaac in a Marvel show. It's really happening.

The outlet reports that the series is expected to begin filming in March 2021 in Budapest, Hungary
Benson and Morehead made their name as a duo on sci-fi horror films like The Endless and Synchronic, the latter starring longtime MCU regular Anthony Mackie. The team has notably taken on many roles in their movies including writing, acting, directing, producing, shooting and editing, which should leave them well-equipped to take on this major production for Marvel Studios.
