In an unexpected move, Mark Zuckerberg, the co-founder of Facebook and Meta, has earned his blue belt in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu. The tech billionaire took to social media to share his excitement and gratitude for being promoted to compete at the blue belt level for the Guerrilla San Jose team. His coach, David Camarillo, a fifth-degree black belt, also praised Zuckerberg’s dedication and discipline in this unique martial art.
Stealthy Competitions and Undercover Adventures
Zuckerberg’s journey in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu has been nothing short of intriguing. Earlier this year, he surprised everyone by competing in a Jiu-Jitsu tournament in California while maintaining a covert identity. Wearing a hat, sunglasses, and a mask, Zuckerberg made sure no one recognized him until he was ready to step onto the mat. This tech mogul is clearly not afraid to take on new adventures, both in the boardroom and on the martial arts mat!
Rising Tensions and a Challenge
The excitement doesn’t end with his blue belt promotion. In a recent Twitter exchange, Elon Musk challenged Zuckerberg to a cage fight after needling him with harsh words. Fearlessly, Zuckerberg responded with a simple, “Send me the location.” With tensions rising between these tech titans, the possibility of a showdown has caught the public’s attention. The two pioneers of their fields have been at each other’s throats for quite some time now.
A Rising Martial Artist in the Tech World
Mark Zuckerberg’s venture into Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu showcases his thirst for adventure and commitment to personal growth. From earning his blue belt to engaging in a potential cage fight with Elon Musk, Zuckerberg’s journey in the martial arts world is far from over. As the tech mogul continues to surprise us with his endeavors, one thing remains certain – the blue belt is just the beginning of his extraordinary martial arts journey. Let’s see now where Zuckerbug plans to go with this newfound passion.
Oscar Isaac will be toplining Marvel’s new show, Moon Knight. It will feature one of the cult characters of the Marvel universe and will aim for a production start in March in Budapest. Ethan Hawke will also make his Marvel comic book adaptation and superhero debut in the new series that will air on Disney+.
Ethan Hawke Will Play the Lead Villain In Moon Knight
Reportedly, May Calamawy, who is known for her work in Ramy, is also engaged in talks related to the Moon Knight show. While the Moon Knight has been portrayed several times over the decades, making a debut back in 1975, the character has seen different versions. He was an ex-Marine turned mercenary with multiple alter egos at some point and a conduit for the Egyptian moon god Khonshu at another. Most recently, the character was portrayed as a dapper consultant and as a person who was struggling with a multiple personality disorder.
It Is Still Not Clear Who Would Be the Moon Knight Villain That Hawke Would Play
The Moon Knight‘s archnemesis is a villain known as the Bushman, so some believe that this will be the role that Ethan Hawke would portray. Mohamed Diab, Justin Benson, and Aaron Moorhead are the people who will be directing the show.
While Hawke’s career started way back in the 1980s, with a teen sci-fi movie called the Explorers, the actor has managed to avoid the comic book movie genre for the 35-plus years since then. Despite that, he has starred in some horror genre franchises such as Sinister and The Purge. In his career, Hawke was nominated twice for acting Oscar for Training Day and Boyhood, as well as twice for writing Before Sunrise and Before Midnight.
Recently, Hawke has wrapped The Northman, which is a new Viking revenge saga starring Anya Taylor-Joy and directed by Robert Eggers. Hawke also invested his time in The Good Lord Bird, a historical drama that he both created and starred in. The news for the actor’s role in Moon Knight has left fans expecting a great new Marvel show.
