Moon Knight director Mohamed Diab shares his thoughts on how realistic it is for Oscar Isaac’s Marc Spector to get a follow-up theatrical film.
Marvel Studios six-episode series moon knight is coming to Disney+, though director Mohamed Diab has shared his hopes that Marc Spector will get his own movie.
In an interview with GamesRadar’s SFX Magazine, Diab revealed his thoughts on the likelihood of Oscar Isaac’s Moon Knight/Marc Spector getting his own theatrical debut in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. “I dream and wish for a movie,” Diab said. “But with Marvel, the way they play it, it’s not like you graduate in a movie. You can walk into a movie and come into a TV show and go back.”
Isaac will star in moon knight as Steven Grant, a gift shop employee who discovers he has dissociative identity disorder (DID). As teased in previous trailers, Steven discovers that one of his alternate personalities, Marc Spector, is a former CIA agent turned mercenary who was brought back to life by the Egyptian moon god Khonshu.
Marvel Studios’ previous Disney+ series featured characters who first appeared in the MCU, with Anthony Mackie’s Sam Wilson appearing in six films, the first being Captain America: The Winter Soldierthen on Disney+ The Falcon and the Winter Soldier. Mackie is now set to reprise his role as Sam Wilson in Captain America 4. Similarly, Elizabeth Olsen’s Wanda Maximoff/Scarlet Witch originally appeared in Avengers: Age of Ultron and several other films before acting in Wanda vision. Olsen’s next MCU appearance will be in Doctor Strange and the Multiverse of Madness.
For Isaac and Ethan Hawke, who plays antagonist Arthur Harrow, it was moon knightThe “disconnect” from the cinematic universe as a whole that drew them to the series in the first place. “I like – you know, when you first see Iron Manor when I first saw Black Panther — where I don’t know the origin story, I don’t know all the characters, I’m really being told a new legend,” Hawke explained. “And I was so happy when we first talked about it that it was disconnected because it gives us a lot more freedom. And as a spectator, that’s what I want, I don’t want to know what’s going to happen.”
moon knight producer Grant Curtis previously teased the Disney+ series’ disconnect from the current MCU, saying that moon knight is “brand new, and he’s embarking on a whole new adventure”. Curtis also compared Moon Knight to Iron Man/Tony Stark, in the sense that “that character that was obviously built from the ground up, and that’s the same with Marc Spector.”
Showrunner Jeremy Slater also said that while Moon Knight’s MCU future is currently unclear, there’s a chance he could one day join the Avengers. “Because [Marvel Studios President and Chief Creative Officer] Kevin [Feige] is the guy who decides all of this,” Slater said. Look, if it were up to me, he’d be part of the Avengers. It’s definitely not mine, but I think that’s the point!”
moon knight is coming to Disney+ on March 30.
