There have been rumors about Moon Knight ‘s
Its possible renewal for a second season for some time, and now the question has been addressed directly to Oscar Isaac during Comic-Con in New York.
The actor has not confirmed or denied (we know that Marvel Studios always ask for the strictest secrecy about their projects), but on the other hand he said that Moon Knight will definitely return to the Marvel Cinematic Universe :
All I can say is that we haven’t heard the latest of the… “system” that is Moon Knight.
The word “system” refers to the fact that at least three different personalities coexist in the Lunar Knight. Anyway, Isaac hints that Mark Spector , Steven Grant and Jake Lockley will return, but we don’t know when or where. A second season is possible, as well as some appearances in other MCU movies or TV series . The House of Ideas is increasingly exploring the horror and supernatural side of this narrative universe (think of the very recent Licantropus ), so there will be more and more space for Moon Knight as well . The peculiarities of him allow him to live with both the Avengers and theMidnight Sons , so the possibilities are not lacking.
In the meantime, I remind you that the first season is available on Disney +
Oscar Isaac when asked about #MoonKnight Season 2:
“All I can say is that this isn’t the last we’ve heard of the system that is Moon Knight🌙”

The series follows Steven Grant, a quiet employee of a gift shop, who is struck by memory lapses and memories from another life. Steven discovers that he has a dissociative identity disorder and that he shares his body with mercenary Marc Spector. As Steven / Marc’s enemies approach, the two must investigate their complex identities as they delve into a deadly mystery among the mighty gods of Egypt.
Moon Knight is a vigilante created by Doug Moench (lyrics) and Don Perlin (drawings) on Werewolf by Night (first series) n. 32, released in August 1975. Under the mask hides Marc Spector , a former marine who starts working for the mercenary Raoul Bushman , but leaves him dying during an expedition to Egypt. The locals save him and bring him in front of the statue of the god Khonshu , who appears to him in a vision and asks him to become a warrior on Earth. Thus was born Moon Knight , superhero equipped with numerous gadgets invented by Spector, whose physical abilities increase to a superhuman level during the night.
Over the years, Spector suffers a psychic breakdown that leads him to suffer from depression, while Khonshu ‘s visions – perhaps due to his mental state – continue to haunt him. He also becomes much more brutal than in the beginning, and doesn’t hesitate to kill criminals.
Oscar Isaac will play the protagonist, Marc Spector . Also in the cast are May Calamawy ( Layla ), Ethan Hawke ( Arthur Harrow ) and Dina Shihabi . The Egyptian god Khonshu will have the voice of F. Murray Abraham .
The direction of various episodes is handled by Mohamed Diab . The Egyptian filmmaker is best known for his feature film debut, Cairo 678 , considered a “harbinger” of the Egyptian revolution of 2011 (it came out a month earlier). In 2016, his Eshtebak (Clash) was selected for the Un Certain Regard section of the Cannes Film Festival, while his next film, Amira , was released in 2021. Diab also wrote The Island , the hugely successful Egyptian blockbuster.
Other episodes were directed by Justin Benson and Aaron Moorhead , acclaimed independent directors in the fields of science fiction and horror. They are known for Spring , The Endless , Synchronic .
Gregory Middleton ( Fringe, Game of Thrones, Watchmen ) is the director of photography. The Milanese Stefania Cella ( The great beauty, Downsizing, Lucy in the Sky, Morbius ) took care of the scenographies.
