There's a lot of anticipation right now for Moon Knight as it will be the next MCU TV series on their slate and the introduction of another hero in the MCU with Oscar Isaac on the titular role. So far, most of the MCU shows have been a limited series except for Loki which is set to return for another season. Some fans have been wondering if that will also be the case for Moon Knight. Now, it looks like we have the answer.
During a one-on-one conversation with Jared Leto for Variety's Actors on Actors video, Isaac shared that he wasn't familiar with the character even though he grew up reading comics before he signed on to the role. Then, he called Moon Knight a limited series and explained why it's better than a feature film.
"I’d never heard of Moon Knight before, and I collected comics when I was younger. I’d heard of Morbius, but I’d never heard of Moon Knight," he said. "I don’t know how the process was for you because it’s a feature film, we’re a limited series. There was a lot of room to try stuff because there wasn’t the pressure that we got to make sure we make however many hundreds of millions of dollars on the opening weekend. So we could make it very point-of-view. We could make very weird decisions. At the moment, at least — and I don’t imagine it’s going to go backwards — it feels like that’s where more of the risk is being taken because it can financially."
It looks like we have a confirmation now that Moon Knight is going to be a limited series, not an ongoing series that will run for multiple seasons like Loki. Of course, that leads to a question: Does it mean that the character will be jumping to the big screen after? It's hard to tell for now, but given that it is part of the MCU, we should assume that Moon Knight will appear in an MCU feature film at some point in the future whether it's an Avengers movie or something like the Blade solo film.
However, it is also likely that plans could change and Marvel Studios will decide that the series will have another season if the viewership and responses were overwhelmingly positive. It's also a character-driven series where they can different stories for each season so the possibilities are endless. Of course, that is just a guess since we haven't seen the series yet so it's hard to tell for now if it will end with a hint that the character will be in a feature film next or we might see him jump to another MCU series.
Moon Knight is set to premiere on March 30 on Disney+.
