Moon Knight’s Future In The MCU
Oscar Isaac’s Moon Knight has entered Marvel at a time that holds way many prospects for its future. Many theories are suggesting a future crossover of Moon Knight with the Avengers. And, consequently, become a part of the core MCU. Moon Knight’s producer Grant Curtis recently opened up about the show’s future in MCU. “What I will say is this: because we delve into so many interesting tones in the tapestry we eventually weave together with this show, the action-adventure globetrotting, the bump in the night horror aspects of it, the mental health character study, the humor, I do think wherever [Marvel President] Kevin [Feige] wants this character to go in the future, I don’t think there’s any corner in the MCU that that Moon Knight cannot inhabit naturally,” Curtis explained.
Furthermore, he explained, “And that is a testament not only to the character on the page but the character that Oscar Isaac brings to the screen. I would take this amazing cast with me. And if it can’t be this cast in the future: People, and artists-men, and crafts-women, who are at the top of their game, just like Oscar [Isaac], Ethan [Hawke], and May [Calamawy] are. That makes my job so much easier when these actors.” Moreover, Moon Knight’s lead Oscar Isaac and director have pitched in their ideas for the superhero’s future merger with other MCU heroes.
