Oscar Isaac is all pumped up to make his Marvel return and MCU debut, and even though Moon Knight may be a slightly less popular Marvel character, fans are very excited for the live-action series. Only a few days from now, Moon Knight, the new MCU series starring the actor, will premiere. As the series has promised to be more gritty than other MCU projects, fans are praising it for taking a darker tone in the MCU.
MCU loves crossovers and team-ups
By now we all know that in the MCU, it’s ultimately about team-ups, as seen in Phase 3. Until then, the individual series not only depict the journey of the heroes as they explore and adapt to their powers, they also act as the build-up for the same.
This trend of team-ups makes perfect sense for Moon Knight. He has been on some notable teams in the past and he will introduce fans to the darker side of the MCU. Oscar Isaac has his eyes on one of those teams as the potential Moon Knight team-up; Midnight Sons is the team in his mind.
Oscar Isaac wants to team up with Charlie Cox
Isaac recently answered a reporter’s question about two superheroes he would like to work with, in a Spanish interview. The actor chose Midnight Sons instead of two superheroes. Daredevil, Punisher, Ghost Rider, and Blade made up the team he wanted. And since, Daredevil isn’t usually a member of this team, does this mean there’s something brewing behind the curtains of the MCU?
The series’ trailers highlight Steven Grant’s dissociative identity disorder, who has no idea that he shares a body with Marc Spector/Moon Knight. As per the plotline, Marc Spector inherited his powers after making a lifesaving pact with the Egyptian moon god Khonshu. While his story is whole on its own and even though Director Grant Curtis told a news outlet that Moon Knight’s origin story doesn’t need to be a part of the larger MCU, it’s possible the protagonist will work with other heroes in the future.
What other MCU heroes would you like Moon Knight to team up with?
The series will be out on Disney+ on March 30. Till then, we can only speculate.
