A few months ago, Oscar Isaac teased the possibility of a second season. He did this on social media with showrunner Mohamed Diab. Although there was nothing official from Marvel, it got people excited to see Marc Spector, Steven Grant and all his other personalities again.
While most MCU projects these days rely on having a push from another character. Marvel’s Moon Knight is the first MCU series that featured a superhero that didn’t have any form of connection to any of them.
This felt like an independent project from Marvel Studios, but at the same time, introduced something new to the Marvel Universe. One thing, the setting of the show is set in London, some parts of Europe and Egypt. The MCU regularly revolves around New York and other parts of the United States and Wakanda.
Since it felt like a stand-alone project, there was no immediate plan for making a sequel. So, it was a surprise to many that the show ended with a slight cliffhanger. While the main story itself is done, it also gives the audience some questions about where the future of Moon Knight will go.

The fun thing about streaming is they are there forever, and people can keep re-exploring them. Moon Knight, same thing. I think there’s a future for that character as we move forward.
For Feige to mention Moon Knight out of the blue, it could mean that there are plans coming into form for the character. Is it going to be in a movie, a cameo, a team-up, or a new solo series? None of us really know. But it does show that the character has the potential to show up again in the Marvel Universe.
The character showing up in the future is not much of a surprise. Since Marvel has planned that every character in the MCU will show up again eventually. Marvel plans to tell the stories of each character through a solo movie, series or something like the Hulk, where his journey is incorporated into other films like Avengers and Thor.
Kevin Feige already said that there is a plan for the character to crossover to the MCU. This was even before the release of the Disney Plus Moon Knight series. The only question is when and if the actor is willing to come back to reprise the role.
There have been reports that Marvel Studios already has plans up to Phase 7. This is not far-fetched since some of the Phase 6 films have already been announced. There are some reports that they might even have plans beyond Phase 7 at this point. It all depends on what the next phases will tell after the Multiverse Saga.
Moon Knight Will Join The MCU
So far, there have been very few announcements for Phase 6. Thus, we wonder if Moon Knight could still potentially show up sometime soon. He could, though, especially with how big things will affect the multiverse with Avengers: The Kang Dynasty and Avengers: Secret Wars. Would the Egyptian moon god Khonshu have a say in the multiverse?
There are also reports that there are plans for a team-up with the Midnight Suns. While some of us are enjoying the most recent video game release of the team, many are hoping that a movie version will actually turn up at some point in the MCU.
Now that Doctor Strange, Wong, Man-Thing, Werewolf by Night, Elsa Bloodstone and soon Blade are in the MCU, it just feels like the team-up is getting close. Where is Ghost Rider, though? Is he the last piece of the puzzle before the Midnight Suns show up? And what about The Punisher?
Oscar Isaac, who played Moon Knight and his other personalities, has confirmed that he has been talking to Marvel about the character’s return. Although nothing has been announced, it’s good to know that Isaac is interested in returning.
