Oscar Isaac was officially announced as Solid Snake in the upcoming Metal Gear Solid movie. Fans have been eager to see who would be playing the super secret agent in the long-gestating project. Now that the cat is out of the bag, the excitement level in the Metal Gear Solid fan circles is boiling over. They cannot wait to see what the actor will look like as the iconic character.
One person has gone so far as to jump the gun and create what they think Oscar Isaac will look like as Solid Snake in the Metal Gear Solid movie. Instagram user spdrmnkyxxiii – who also made a great piece of art featuring John Boyega as DC’s Red Hood – decided to make up a piece of fan art to give us an idea of what the former Poe Dameron could appear as in the upcoming movie. Check out their excellent piece of fan art right here:
It is definitely a great way to argue that Oscar Isaac will look great in the role. We will obviously have to wait and see if the Metal Gear Solid movie decides to stay as faithful to the original video game character designs, but this is a wonderful treat for fans who have been anticipating this movie for many years. And once again, Isaac does look pretty awesome in this rendition.
And this is not the only example of Oscar Isaac being cast as Solid Snake in fan art. Prolific illustrator BossLogic also offered up some artwork of the actor as Solid Snake. In fact, he even collaborated with spdrmnkyxxiii on the second poster you see in the below tweet. Safe to say, a lot of people are very excited about this casting. Give it a look!
There is the hope that Oscar Isaac’s announced casting will get the ball rolling on the Metal Gear Solid movie. The project has been in some stage of development for nearly fifteen years. And the director, Jordan Vogt-Roberts, has been attached to the film for over six years. It is very clear that Sony wants to turn Metal Gear Solid into a movie, but it seems to be stuck in the gears of Hollywood.
Thankfully, the announcement that Oscar Isaac has signed on to play the lead role is a big step forward. He is also a notable star that could potentially attract other prominent actors to the project. The more people that officially attach themselves to the project helps it slowly but surely inch towards becoming a reality. It is no wonder that fans are excited enough to start immediately drawing up images of what they think Solid Snake could look like in the feature film adaptation.
We hope we will get to see an official look at Oscar Isaac as Solid Snake within the coming year. It has been a long, hard road for the Metal Gear Solid movie to make its way to the big screen. If this casting news can be the thing that actually gets the movie made, we are anxious to see everything we can about it.
