Well, the list of distinguished actors attached to this project has just gone up by one.

As shared by the Hollywood Reporter, Ethan Hawke, from, uh, a lot of amazing things, has been chosen to play the main villain in Disney Plus’s upcoming Moon Knight series. The series, about which little is known other than the (mostly confirmed) rumour that Oscar Isaac is playing the starring role, is an adaptation of the Marvel comic of the same name, featuring the eponymous anti-hero.

Who does that mean Ethan Hawke is playing, exactly? Unknown, though the big Moon Knight-exclusive baddie is normally a treasure seeker named Bushman. Though, considering how eclectic the character’s history is, it really is hard to say.

Moon Knight is expected to begin shooting in March, in Budapest.
