Speaking of Hawke’s children, the actor previously revealed that when it came to keeping Marvel secrets, he only shared the insider info with his son, Levon Thurman-Hawke.

“It’s not in my personality to just not rifle all kind of information out. It’s so difficult for me,” Hawke explained. “My son has to know everything. He’s 19, he was the perfect age for the Marvel universe. You know, he came of age as that whole explosion has happened. So whenever I needed to know the backstory behind this god or this character, he’s like, ‘Ah, Dad! Let me correct you on that.’ So he was my go-to resource.”

While speaking with‘s Brandon Davis, Hawke talked about his Moon Knight character’s motivations.

“I think he views himself as a real apostle of the Goddess Ammit, and that he’s here to heal the world, and rid it of sinners, and it’s gonna be a violent time, but the peace, and the beauty that will come when all these sinners are gone, it’s gonna be worth it,” Hawke said.
