Now that the dust has settled on Moon Knight after six acclaimed episodes, the focus has now immediately shifted towards what comes next for Marc Spector, Steven Grant, Jake Lockley, and any other personalities who may be waiting in the wings.
The finale accomplished a great deal in tying up the title hero’s initial arc, setting the stage for more mythological adventures, introducing the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s newest superhero, before finally giving fans the Lockley appearance they’d been hedging their bets on since the premiere, but none of the key players are giving anything away as to what comes next.
Isaac isn’t under contract as things stand, although we expect he’s hardly averse to the idea of more Moon Knight, while director Mohamed Diab is more than game for an MCU return, even if his fellow helmers Justin Benson and Aaron Moorhead are already preoccupied with Loki‘s second run.
However, supporters of the iconic antihero find themselves engaged in a debate about whether they’d prefer Moon Knight season 2, or a standalone feature film with the conflicted favorite front and center.
Such is the beauty of the MCU in the era of Disney Plus, either one is just as likely. We’ve seen The Falcon and the Winter Soldier set the stage for Anthony Mackie’s Captain America movie, while Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness is effectively a WandaVision sequel of sorts, so the franchise has no issues with jumping between the big and small screens to carry on a story. As for Moon Knight? We’ll just have to wait and see.
