Will Moon Knight return after his TV show ends?

We still have a little over a month to go. Moon Knight is heading to Disney+, but it’s hard not to wonder what the character’s future will look like after his TV show ends.

“I can’t imagine this being the last time you’ll see Moon Knight in the MCU,” the show’s head writer and executive producer Jeremy Slater remarked in a chat for Empire‘s number 2022 (now on sale). “He’s too much fun.”

“It depends if people see the creepy spectacle first,” added Oscar Isaac, who plays Marc Spector and is executive producer of the highly anticipated project. “If they see him, then maybe we’ll see more of Moon Knight. But I love playing him. Especially Steven [Grant, Marc’s British alter ego]. I hope to be able to see him again. I love him so much. I feel that he is a real person, who lives in the world. It’s been a long time since I’ve felt that kind of connection.”

Chances are good that we will see the character again. Otherwise, why would Disney pour millions of dollars into Moon Knight if he didn’t have big plans for him on the big screen? There has been some light speculation as to how it might take into account the larger events of this comic book world. The most likely theory posits that the MCU is laying the groundwork for the Midnight Sons, a team of heroes with supernatural abilities (almost like a Marvel version of Justice League Dark).

Several prime candidates are already on the board: Moon Knight, Blade (Mahershala Ali), Dane Whitman/Black Knight (Kit Harrington), and possibly even a new iteration of Ghost Rider, possibly played by a very game Norman Reedus.

Of course, nothing is confirmed beyond Moon Knight’s small-screen debut. “He always fascinated us like something we had never seen before [so] when the idea of ​​Disney+ came up, it quickly became one of the first things we wanted to do because we loved the story,” explained Marvel Studios boss Kevin Feige, who also promised that the series (which debuts next month) wouldn’t dilute the dark, gritty tone of the original comics.

Isaac – who already dipped his toes in the Marvel pool with 2016 X-Men: Apocalypse – had never heard of the hero growing up, but was immediately hooked by the hero’s obscure reputation, which allowed for more creative leeway.

“Your grandma knows who Spider-Man and Hulk are, but Moon Knight…you have to explain yourself,” Slater continued. “But Marvel is always looking for things they haven’t done yet – untapped areas – and Moon Knight is just so different from all the other characters.”

Moon Knight rushes to Disney+ on Wednesday, March 30.
