Ethan Hawke Inspired by Paul Schrader for Grim Opening Ritual of "Moon Knight"
Marvel's "Moon Knight" opens with cult leader Arthur Harrow, played by Ethan Hawke, listening to Bob Dylan while ritualistically putting shards of glass in his own sandals. The scene was Hawke's own creation, and the actor admits that his experience playing Reverend Toller in Paul Schrader's 'First Reformed' (2017) inspired the scene. "Moon Knight" star Oscar Isaac also admits that Schrader's influence was felt on the set, having himself just starred in the filmmaker's intense drama 'The Card Counter' (2021). Directors Justin Benson and Aaron Moorhead, plus executive producer Grant Curtis also sound off on the importance of Hawke's storytelling prowess and the collaborative experience of a Marvel Studios set.
