Ethan Hawke’s 13-year-old daughter finally recognized him as an actor after seeing the first Disney+ trailer MCU series “Moon Knight”.
Ethan Hawke from “Moon Knight” shares how his teenage daughter reacted to seeing the first trailer of Marvel’s cinematic universe. After the initial announcement in 2019, the first episode of “Moon Knight” is now streaming on Disney+. In it, Oscar Isaac plays a meek souvenir shop assistant Stephen Grant, who is oblivious to his alternate personalities, including Mark Spector, a mercenary who has signed a life-saving contract with the Egyptian moon god Honshu. Jeremy Slater is the showrunner and lead writer of the six-part series, directed by Egyptian director Mohamed Diab’s team, which includes Justin Benson and Aaron Moorhead. In addition to Isaac, the cast includes Lucy Thackeray, Mae Kalamavi, the late Gaspard Ulliel in the role of Anton Mogart/Midnight Man and Hawk.
After dominating the silver screen outside of the comics genre for years, Hawke finally joined the MCU with “Moon Knight.” He plays the main antagonist of the series, cult leader Arthur Harrow, who serves the Egyptian goddess Ammit, not Honshu. Prior to the first episode, Hawke’s character was surrounded by secrets and speculation due to the record-breaking trailer for “Moon Knight”. Now, Hawke has shared his daughter’s reaction to this first trailer.
In a recent interview with People, Hawke shared how impressed his daughter was with the trailer for ‘Moon Knight’. Hawke has four children, including Maya Hawke (“Very Strange Things”), and his 13-year-old daughter Clementine Hawke finally recognized him as an actor. Read the full quote below:
‘Well, I’ll tell you something. I have a 13-year-old daughter and she saw the trailer for ‘Moon Knight’, and she said…I mean, I suddenly became a real actor to her. She looked it up on her phone and thought, “Dad, this looks really good.” I mean, her eyes just went out – she couldn’t believe it. “That’s what kids talk about at school.”
Over the course of 27 films, beginning with “Iron Man” in 2008, Marvel Studios has developed the most profitable, popular, and large-scale franchises in entertainment history. His list has expanded to the small screen with shows like “Vandavision”, “The Falcon and the Winter Soldier”, “Loki”, “What If…?”, “Hawkeye” and now “Moon Knight”. Unlike its predecessors on Disney+, “Moon Knight” introduces all-new characters that don’t rely on the established MCU. Nevertheless, judging by Clementine’s response, Kevin Feige and the company know what they’re doing. MCU projects continue to attract top talent like Hawke and give them the creative freedom they need to succeed.
Hawke brought his insightful work on the character to the series, as can be seen in his very first scene, where Harrow puts broken glass in his shoes, an idea the actor came up with himself. While promoting Moon Knight, Hawke also spoke about the advice his other daughter, Maya, had given him about the Marvel fandom. She told him to respect the passion of the fandom and give them what it’s worth. So far, Hawk seems to be doing just that. Moon Knight currently has a critical rating of 87% and a ratings of 94% on Rotten Tomatoes, as well as the highest rating of the MCU pilot series on IMDb. The next episode of “Moon Knight” will be released on Disney+ on April 6.
