‘Moon Knight’ premieres tomorrow (30) on Disney+ e Ethan Hawke decided to give some details about the plans of the enigmatic Arthur Harrow, villain of the series.
In an interview for the Comic Bookthe star said that he was even inspired by David Koresh, leader of a religious sect, to build the character.
For those who don’t know, Koresh he claimed to be the last living prophet and preached that his followers would share with him the “promised wealth beyond eternal life.”
However, he was authoritarian and was accused of several crimes, including sexual abuse against members of the sect.
“I think Arthur he sees himself as a true apostle of the Egyptian Goddess Ammit, the devourer of souls. He believes he is here to heal the world and rid it of sinners, and his time on Earth will be a time of violence, but the peace and beauty that will come when all these sinners are gone will be worth it… that he believes.”
Hawke said he had to reflect on his own belief system to prepare for the role.
“I think many of us feel that there is some part of ourselves that can be guided by a strong enough belief system. A lot of us are lost, and we have no direction, so we crave a sense of purpose, and a belief system can really give that to you, and I think it just knelt down to Ammit and let itself be used. He doesn’t question her actions, he is absolutely direct because his dedication to this goddess is blind. So, in a way, it is very simple.”
Previously, to Marvel Studios released a scene highlighting Harrow’s powers.
In the scene, the villain uses his cane to release a powerful blast of energy, blasting a hole in the ground and summoning what appears to be a demon.
Meanwhile, Steven Grant (oscar isaac) and May’s character Calamawy try to flee the site, which resembles an Egyptian catacomb.
