There’s been a lot of talk lately on where we will see Oscar Isaac’s Moon Knight next following his show’s six-episode run. Whether it’s a second season of the Disney+ series or a team-up project (Midnight Sons maybe?), it seems all but certain that his role will not be a one time-thing. However, comments by the actor recently suggest that there is a chance that it could, in fact, be a one-off.
“I had heard of the golden handcuffs,” Isaac said. “That was something that I was reticent about. And luckily, we all agreed that this [show] is what we’re going to focus on. This is the story. And if there’s any kind of future, I think it just depends on if people like it, if people want to see more, and if we find a story that’s worth telling.”
While agreeing to a key Marvel role like Moon Knight can be very beneficial financially, it can also strap you in for a long time and prevent you from doing other projects. So it makes sense that Isaac doesn’t want to commit long term right off the bat.
Regardless of his comments, I still believe it’s all but certain that he will be back. The show has already received positive reactions from fans and critics through one episode, so I think it’s only a matter of time before he signs on for more.
Along with Isaac, Moon Knight stars Ethan Hawke, May Calamawy, and F. Murray Abraham (voice only). The series was directed by Mohamed Diab, Justin Benson, and Aaron Moorhead, while Jeremy Slater (The Umbrella Academy) served as showrunner and head writer.
