With the release of the series Moon Knight on Disney+, Marvel introduced us to a new superhero with ties to the Gods of Egypt. Oscar Isaac portrayed the main protagonist, mercenary Marc Spector, and his alter Steven Grant, a mild-mannered gift shop attendant. In a post-credit scene, a third alter, Jake Lockley, was revealed, leaving the door open for the character and story for the second season.
Oscar Isaac has revealed that the trio is still under the control of the Egyptian god Khonshu. The series was planned as limited series by Marvel, but it was well-received by audiences and critics, sparking speculation about a second season. There has been little to no news about the second season of Moon Knight, but Isaac has provided some additional information.
Oscar Isaac on Moon Knight season 2
Recently Isaac was speaking with Collider about the possibility of a Moon Knight season 2 alongside Bob Johnson and writer John Alvey.
When asked specifically about the possibility of a Moon Knight Season 2 by Collider, Isaac said he “can’t definitely say that,” noting that “there’s no official word” from Marvel Studios.
Isaac: We can’t definitively say that. I need my teasing abilities. Can’t drain me of those. What a cock tease I am. Always been.
John Alvey: That’s true.
Isaac: No, I hope so. We’ll see what happens. But at the moment, there’s no official word.
Bob Johnson: Well, if there isn’t, we’re going to riot. If there isn’t one… You, me, and everybody else are going to riot if there isn’t. I’ll tell you that.
Oscar Isaac stated in an interview with RadioTimes that he “loves being Steven [Grant].” Fans adore Isaac as Steven Grant, and many have called for him to win awards for his performance in Moon Knight. So, if Marvel wanted to make more Moon Knight, and “if there was a story that really made sense,” Isaac would be “happy” to return.
Oscar Isaac has great potential in the MCU, according to director Mohamed Diab
Even if Marvel does not move forward with Moon Knight Season 2, Oscar Isaac may still have a role in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Mohamed Diab, the director of Moon Knight, is confident that Isaac’s character will live on in some form.
“What I am certain of is that Moon Knight is staying, and for a long time, in my opinion.” “It’s just a guess,” he recently told Collider. “He’s so intriguing that I think he’ll stay, but what will happen next?” Is he returning for another season? Is it going to be made into a film? Will he go with someone else? Your guess is mine.”
It’s unclear whether we’ll get a second season or what the story will be like. A second season would also see the return of Marc’s wife, Layla El-Faouly, as the Scarlet Scarab, which would be an interesting angle for the series to explore.
