The next big series from Marvel Studios coming to Disney+ is “Moon Knight,” which stars Oscar Isaac as the titles.
In the series, Steven Grant, a mild-mannered gift shop employee, is plagued by power outages and memories of another life. Steven discovers he has dissociative identity disorder and shares a body with mercenary Marc Spector. As Steven/Marc’s enemies converge on them, they must navigate their complex identities while immersed in a deadly mystery among the mighty gods of Egypt.
In a recent interview with Variety, Oscar Isaac and Jared Leto discussed a variety of topics, including the two making their debut on our screens as Marvel anti-heroes this year. During the interview, Oscar Isaac said:
I had never heard of “Moon Knight” before, and collected the comics when I was younger. I had heard of “Morbius”, but I had never heard of “Moon Knight”. I don’t know how the process went for you because it’s a feature film, we’re a limited series. There was plenty of room to try things out because there wasn’t the pressure we had to make sure we made hundreds of millions of dollars on opening weekend. So we could make it a very sharp point of view. We could make very strange decisions. For now, at least – and I don’t imagine it’s going to go back – it feels like that’s where the most risk is taken because it’s financially possible.
One of the interesting things that Oscar mentions is that this is a limited series. Ahead of the release of the first Disney+ Marvel series, it was revealed that some shows would have multiple seasons, like “Loki,” and others would be limited series, like “WandaVision,” meaning we’d only get only one season of the show.
This could be seen in several different ways. For one thing, currently there might only be one plan for a “Moon Knight” series. Or, as with everything with the MCU, this is just his first series, and Oscar will appear in other series or movies as “Moon Knight.”
Or, Oscar could be referring to the fact that the series is limited, as it only has a small number of episodes, compared to your usual TV show.
Ultimately, we’ll have to wait and see if we get more seasons of “Moon Knight.”
The new series will debut on Disney+ on Wednesday, March 30.
