Star Oscar Isaac’ teases Moon Knight’s arc in the upcoming Disney+ show. Isaac also talks a little, tentatively, about what comes next after the Moon Knight show for this character in a recent interview with Games Radar. Isaac was asked if he can say how the series ends and of course he can’t. However Isaac does perhaps tease where the character’s arc is going.
“I wouldn’t want to spoil anything, but what I can say is that what we really tried to do is map out the journey of integration and then how that is a step in healing from trauma, and that the real superpower that this character, or these characters, have is their experiences. And when those things can be integrated, as opposed to pushed away, that’s where real strength comes from.”
It sounds as though the completion of this arc will be Marc Spector, Steven Grant and whoever else is hiding away in there all coming together and being accepting of one another as opposed to trying to push out each other.
Asked about where Moon Knight may show up next in the MCU?
“I didn’t look at my contract [laughs]. I mean, I don’t know. For me, it’s such a point of view character that seeing him in something that was a bigger point of view, I don’t know how that character operates in that world.”
And what about potential crossovers with other heroes?
“I mean, maybe. Obviously, there’s the Midnight Sons comic book, which is the kind of supernatural Avengers with Blade and Ghost Rider and Punisher. The idea is really interesting, but it would have to be like, is there something interesting to tell about this character in that world?”
You’ve got to imagine that Marvel Studios has a Midnight Sons film planned. However I think it may be a while out yet. None of the other characters have really been introduced yet. Unless you count one post-credit scene between Black Knight and Blade in Eternals. It could be a while before we see Isaac again. Or, he could show up in either Werewolf by Night or Blade, who knows? Probably Oscar Isaac, but if he does he’s not talking.
