So far, the Marvel Cinematic Universe has released six episodic exclusives on Disney Plus, and only two of them have been offered second season renewals. To be fair, Moon Knight only concluded yesterday, but that hasn’t stopped fans from already growing impatient about the lack of clarity.
Tom Hiddleston’s Asgardian trickster was confirmed to be receiving a second run of episodes when Loki drew to a close, while the sophomore session of What If…? was already in the works before the reality-warping animated escapades had even premiered.
WandaVision‘s storyline will be continued in Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, though, while The Falcon and the Winter Soldier‘s narrative will be carried on in Anthony Mackie’s standalone Captain America movie. For the time being, that leaves Hawkeye and Moon Knight out in the canonical cold, with social media voicing its frustrations.
Oscar Isaac’s title hero could return for another batch of small screen adventures, or he could end up headlining his own big screen blockbuster, while there’s no reason why he can’t show up across various other film and television projects now that he’s been fully established.
That’s the beauty of the MCU; anyone can show up anywhere at any time, even if people would be able to sleep a whole lot easier if they knew that Moon Knight was guaranteed an additional six installments. That’s not to say it won’t happen, and it could realistically be given the green light at any moment, but it only hammers home how much of an impact the supernatural adventure had on its audience.
