    So Oscar Isaac will be playing moon knight. and This is proving divisive not because they are making the character non white, but because Moon Knight is jewish and many feel it should be a Jewish actor playing him. Isaac, it turns out may have some Jewish ancestry on his father's side, but for many this is still an issue because he doesnt identify as Jewish and Moon Knight is one of the few canonically Jewish characters in Marvel

    I had no idea Moon Knight was canonically Jewish, honestly. How exactly does that mesh with his being the Fist of Khonshu? I mean, his powers literally come from a kind of a god, right? Doesn't Khonshu even talk to him? How does that affect his faith?

    Clearly I haven't been the biggest Moon Knight fan. I always thought his big thing was supposed to be that he was kind like a crazier Batman.

    It started as a retcon when it was pointed out that Moon Knight's family name of Spector is a Jewish name, so they retconed in that he was the son of a rabbi

    To the best of my knowledge, he's not an observant Jew. It's like, it's there but rarely comes up.

    ... right, but didn't Claremont have that demon bear thing manifest as like some evil force from her religion, though? Or am I misremembering that? Because if not, probably different than how the Jewish God would be handled in the Marvel Universe, right?

    Fair enough. Well, nothing against Oscar Isaac, but if Jewish people are upset, then I'd agree it should be a Jewish actor.

    Didn’t Oscar Isaac say he’s of French descent?

    I always assumed he was a white hispanic.

    Yeah it's weird people saying he's not white. I mean if he doesn't consider himself white, so be it. But "Latino" isn't a race.
