Oscar Isaac may be the latest star to join the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

The actor and former Julliard standout is in talks to star in "Moon Knight" for Disney+, a rep for the star confirmed to Fox News on Monday.

The series will follow Marc Spector, a mercenary-turned-superhero once he becomes a conduit for Khonshu, the Egyptian moon god.

While this would be the 41-year-old actor's first bow in the MCU, he has been involved with Marvel in the past, having starred in "X-Men: Apocalypse," a pre-Disney merger Fox Marvel flick.

Of course, Isaac is a friend of the Mouse House, having appeared as Poe Dameron in the most recent "Star Wars" trilogy.
