Oscar Isaac Teases Moon Knight Season 2

Did Oscar Isaac reveal Moon Knight will be getting.a second season on Disney+?

Published

on

Moon Knight
(Disney+)

The first season of Marvel Studios’ Moon Knight ended with quite a cliffhanger, but the series appears to be returning for a second season.

One of the series’ executive producers, Mohamed Diab, tweeted out a TikTok on Wednesday of him and Moon Knight himself, Oscar Isaac, in Cairo seeming to confirm a second season of the show is coming. When asked if the series was getting a second season Isaac stated, “why else would we be in Cairo?”

When originally released, Moon Knight was announced as a limited-series on Disney+ with a six-episode season. However, it looks like we are getting more. With the statement of being in Cairo, does the second season release as part of Phase 5 or will the show be part of the sixth phase?

Kevin Feige, President at Marvel Studios and Chief Creative Officer at Marvel, recently teased more announcements are coming at Disney’s D23 Expo in September. “There’s so much more to discuss and unveil, and we didn’t want to talk about everything today,” said Feige. Will Moon Knight season two be part of the information revealed at D23?

Moon Knight was created by Jeremy Slater based on the Marvel Comics’ character of the same name. Isaac starred as Marc Spector / Steven Grant / Moon Knight, with May Calamawy, Karim El Hakim, F. Murray Abraham, Ethan Hawke, Ann Akinjirin, David Ganly, Khalid Abdalla, Gaspard Ulliel, Antonia Salib, Fernanda Andrade, Rey Lucas, Sofia Danu, and Saba Mubarak also starring. The Phase 4 show received rave reviews.

Marvel tends to try and keep announcements close to the vest and likes to time them out perfectly. So this video could just be blowing smoke, but we could see more revealed in just over a month.

What Is Marvel’s Secret Wars?

Secret Wars were popular Marvel Comics crossover events dating back 38 years to 1984.

Published

on

Secret Wars
(Marvel Entertainment)

Marvel announced the next two Avengers films at the San Diego Comic-Con in July, including Avengers: Secret Wars. The film will be the final movie of Phase 6 in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Over the past 38 years Marvel Comics has released three different crossover events with the title Secret Wars. The first series released in 1984 titled Marvel Super Heroes Secret Wars, followed by Secret Wars II in 1985, and Secret Wars in 2015. These three crossover events have been some of the most popular comics in Marvel history.

The Beginning of Secret Wars

The first 12-issue crossover limited series was published by Marvel Comics from May 1984 to April 1985. The series was created by writer Jim Shooter and artists Mike Zeck and Bob Layton. The limited series was tied-in with a toy line of the same name from Mattel.

The toy line was the main basis for the name of the series. “We went through a number of ideas for names for the toy line and series. Mattel’s focus group tests indicated that kids reacted positively to the words ‘wars’ and ‘secret’,” said Shooter.

Secret Wars 8A cosmic entity called the Beyonder observes the Marvel universe. Fascinated by the presence of superheroes on Earth and their potential, this entity chooses a group of both heroes and supervillains. The cosmic entity teleports characters against their will to “Battleworld”, a planet created by the Beyonder in a distant galaxy. The world is stocked with alien weapons and technology. The Beyonder then declares: “I am from beyond! Slay your enemies and all that you desire shall be yours! Nothing you dream of is impossible for me to accomplish!”

The original series heroes included the Captain America, Captain Marvel, Hawkeye, Iron Man, the She-Hulk, Thor, the Wasp, and the Hulk (all members of the Avengers); Human Torch, Mister Fantastic and the Thing (Fantastic Four); Colossus, Cyclops, Nightcrawler, Professor X, Rogue, Storm, Wolverine, and Lockheed the Dragon (X-Men); Spider-Man, and Spider-Woman. Magneto is featured as a hero, but immediately becomes non-aligned when the Avengers question his presence.

As for villains: Absorbing Man, Doctor Doom, Doctor Octopus, the Enchantress, Kang the Conqueror, Klaw, Lizard, Molecule Man, Titania, Ultron, Volcana, and Wrecking Crew. Galactus also appears as a villain who immediately becomes a non-aligned entity.

Some say Spider-Man wearing the black suit for the first time happens in issue eight of the series, but the issue actually was released months after Amazing Spider-Man #252 where is seen wearing the costume on the cover. The cover of issue eight is still one of the most famous and sought-after covers featuring Spider-Man.

To not spoil the 12-issue series the ending will not be explained here and we encourage you to read the series.

The Sequel

Due to the success of the original series, a nine-issue limited series and crossover event was published from 1985 to 1986 by Marvel. Shooter returned to write the issues with artist Al Milgrom on board. Secret Wars II was a sequel to the first series with multiple other titles tying-in to the series. Each tie-in featured a Secret Wars II logo in the top right hand corner to indicate that it was a part of the overall story. This marked the first time Marvel published a story where the reader would have to purchase multiple titles in order to read the entire story. Something they are known for now.

Secret Wars II 3The sequel features the return of the Beyonder, who visits Earth in search of enlightenment. He inevitably comes into conflict with Earth’s superhumans. At first, the Beyonder tries to figure out the meaning of everyday tasks humans do, such as: eating, sleeping, using the bathroom, then he works for a mobster and becomes a powerful being who is obsessed with gadgets. The Beyonder attempts to start relationships with multiple superhuman women and features appearances of Doctor Doom, Mephisto and many more.

Secret Wars II was the best selling comic book of 1985, but many call it one of the most despised comics of the year. It does seem like the first limited-series did extremely well, so the money people at Marvel and Mattel forced a sequel into the mix and it didn’t go as planned.

Returning To The Well

The return of the name Secret Wars came in 2015 by writer Jonathan Hickman and artist Esad Ribić in a nine-issue limited series. The outstanding artwork of Alex Ross was present on all regular covers. The event also served as a conclusion to the Fantastic Four after Marvel decided to cancel the title due to a film rights dispute with 20th Century Fox. This is different now with the Disney purchase of Fox for $71.3 billion in 2019.

Secret Wars 4Marvel wanted to streamline their multiverses in 2015 and used this version of Secret Wars to combine the main Earth-616 Marvel Universe with the Earth-1610 Ultimate Universe, along with other storylines such as Marvel 2099, the Age of Apocalypse storyline, the Marvel 1602 universe, and the House of M storyline. This was to allow readers to understand bit more of Marvel Comics stories.

The use of Battleworld is also seen in the 2015 limited series. Each universe’s respective Earth combined with each other into Battleworld, a planet that exhibits the aspects of the various universes. The planet itself is divided in many territories that are mostly self-contained and where a pocket universe composed of a specific storyline or universe reside and evolve. Various versions of individual Marvel characters can be present multiple times on the Battleworld.

Like most of Marvel’s crossover events, Secret Wars had many tie-in comics which had categories such as Battleworld, Warzones, and Lost Days. This crossover event is one of the most well received storylines in recent years with positive reviews, critics praising the storyline, characters, action, and art styles.

Must read for any current Marvel Comics reader.

Which Will Be The Source Material For The MCU?

Like most of what Kevin Feige puts together in the MCU, Avengers: Secret Wars will be a combination of the three crossover events. We expect most of the story to come from the Hickman / Ribić run of 2015, as the purpose seems to be combining the current Multiverse Saga back into one universe.

Avengers: Secret WarsThe MCU will have the ability to use Doctor Doom, someone who is very present in all three limited series now that Marvel will be introducing the Fantastic Four to kick-off the sixth phase. Like Captain America: Civil War, expect Marvel to avoid using certain characters for varying reasons. Such as Iron Man no longer a part of the MCU and other characters that might not be popular enough to use in the MCU like Molecule Man.

Avengers: Secret Wars will be its own story with pieces taken from the 38 years of Secret Wars source material to source. The film is two-plus years away and a lot is going to happen in the MCU for this film to make it’s mark.

Phase 6: Fantastic Four, Two Avengers Films

Fantastic Four, Avengers: The Kang Dynasty, and Avengers: Secret Wars coming in Phase 6

Published

on

Phase 6

Marvel surprised fans on Saturday night at the San Diego Comic-Con when they announced the end of Phase 4, all of Phase 5, and three films in Phase 6. Things kick-off with Fantastic Four in 2024.

In addition to the Fantastic Four reboot, Kevin Feige, President at Marvel Studios and Chief Creative Officer at Marvel, announced Avengers: The Kang Dynasty and Avengers: Secret Wars in 2025. Two additional unknown films will take part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe Phase 6, more information to come in the future.

Marvel named Phases 4-6 as “The Multiverse Saga” on Saturday night, confirming rumors from earlier in the week.

During The Multiverse Saga Marvel will introduce many of the characters we will see culminate in the two Avengers films in 2025 with Secret Wars being the final film in Phase 6. The Kang Dynasty, landing in the middle of the phase, will no doubtably feature Kang the Conqueror who we first met in Loki season one as “He Who Remains.” Feige confirmed the character is officially Kang, played by Jonathan Majors. Kang will star in Ant-Man and The Wasp: Quantumania to kick-off the fifth phase in February 2023.

With Secret Wars the target and the multiverse the overarching storyline, many different threads are going to take place over the next three years to impact the MCU. The story will likely pull from the 2015 Jonathan Hickman comic book run simply titled “Secret Wars.” However, it’s possible Marvel pulls from the original run in 1984.

It is entirely possible Marvel uses the name, only a few comic book stories, and creates their own film story as they have tended to do over the past few years.

Things will get started with the long-awaited Fantastic Four film on November 8, 2024. No word on if this will be the first appearances of Sue Storm, Reed Richards, Ben Grim, and Johnny Storm or if they will all be featured in other films as supporting actors or cameos before the main film.

The MCU is heading in such an amazing direction with what should be some of the biggest and most impactful comic book movies to ever be made. Avengers: The Kang Dynasty will hit theaters on May 2, 2025 with Avengers: Secret Wars coming on November 7, 2025 to close out Phase 6.
