Recently, Marvel Studios has been busy producing and distributing several genre-defying superhero TV shows on the Disney+ network. Following the conclusion of Avengers: Endgame, the MCU expanded at a previously unheard-of rate. Fans of Moon Knight now have a new reason to believe that their favorite cape crusader could soon make a comeback. About the future of Moon Knight, Oscar Isaac recently hinted to Comicbook.com that he is in discussions with Marvel Studios.
During an interview with ComicBook.com, Oscar Isaac disclosed that conversations about a potential second season of the Disney+ series were in progress.
Isaac admits that he has spoken with Marvel about playing Moon Knight again when chatting with ComicBook.com. In classic Marvel manner, he keeps things ambiguous, but his official statement that both sides are amenable to Moon Knight’s comeback is a welcome development for fans of the character. Oscar Isaac said:
“There have been some specific conversations. They were pleasant. The spilling of the details is that there are no details. We don’t know [if there will be a second season], but we’re talking about it. Truthfully, it’s about the story. Is there a story worth telling? Is it interesting? Will I feel embarrassed about it when it comes out? So it’s just about, is there something worth pouring everything you have into? And with Moon Knight, that was very much about that. It’s creating a structure so that I couldn’t wait to get to the set every morning when the alarm went off because I wanted to try something different. Whether [Isaac’s Moon Knight returns] in a group thing or maybe a great idea comes around for a season two or if it’s a standalone film or whatever it could be, I think it’s just approaching it in that kind of way. It’s the story first.”
In more recent interviews, Isaac seems to have altered his mind and made it clear that Moon Knight and his three alter egos—Stephen Grant, Marc Spector, and Jake Lockley would return. The star would not elaborate on the specifics of Moon Knight’s return. As a result, fans began to wonder whether the Fist of Khonshu will next make an appearance in a Disney+ special, a movie, or another season of his TV show. Although Marvel Studios has not formally confirmed this, Isaac’s most recent remarks indicate that he was alluding to Moon Knight Season 2.
The six-episode season of Moon Knight, which Marvel announced and promoted as a limited series, served as a stand-alone journey into a different aspect of the MCU. In the end, its favorable reception from reviewers and viewers, together with the Jake Lockley cliffhanger, appeared to raise the prospect of a season 2. About two weeks ago, Isaac teased the return of Moon Knight as the title character and hinted at Moon Knight’s potential in the MCU.
