Social media is in love with Oscar Isaac. Look like everything about the first episode of 'Moon Knight' has conquered the fans' hearts: his look, his manners, and, of course, the acting itself.

Even the way he deals with fans is charming.


You can't seriously love a show for its credits scene. Or can you? 'Moon Knight' stans can argue.

But it's not just the aesthetics of the credits, it's also about the message. Since the show revolves around dissociative identity disorder, Marvel included mental health hotline to the credits – and the gesture did not go unnoticed.
