“If you ask me the question, I want to answer you that Moon Knight is here to stay…”
The end of Moon Knight, uploaded this week on Disney+, obviously makes us want to see more. Moreover, the last minutes leave plenty of room for a suite around Marc Spector and his personalities. The Egyptian filmmaker Mohammad Diab, who directed most of the episodes – including the finale – sincerely hopes a sequel will see the light of day. Even if no season 2 of Moon Knight is really in the pipes.
“If you ask me the question, I want to answer you that Moon Knight is here to stay… He’s an exciting character and in place of Marvel, even on a commercial level, the smart thing to do would be to keep him around. But that doesn’t necessarily mean a season 2. Besides, I want to make it clear that I’m in total ignorance on this subject”, comments the director in Variety. “I have no idea what they are planning.

Still, the question of a season 2 will largely depend on the commitments ofOscar Isaac. Highly requested, touches on everything, nothing says that the actor wants to drag on in the MCU. Besides, he is not contractually obliged to remain in the franchise. His deal with Marvel ends with this end of Moon Knight. A conscious choice of the actor: “I had heard of contracts in the shape of a golden prison… This is something that worried me. Fortunately, we all agreed that this series was an object in itself, which we will focus on. Only one story”recently pointed out Oscar Isaac in variety. “And if there’s a future, I think it’s going to be up to the audience. If people want to see more and if we find a story worth telling, then…”
