Here's How Possible A Moon Knight Movie Is, According To Director Mohamed Diab

Fans who are excited about the "Moon Knight" show don't have too much longer to wait, as the miniseries is set to premiere on Disney+ on March 30. The series will run for six episodes and tell the story of Marc Spector aka Moon Knight (Oscar Isaac), a mercenary who has dissociative identity disorder and becomes the conduit for the ancient Egyptian lunar god Khonshu (F. Murray Abraham). Presumably, the show will focus on Spector's various identities as he comes to turn with being Moon Knight while fighting against the villainous Arthur Harrow (Ethan Hawke), a cult leader with ties to the Egyptian god Ammit.

"Moon Knight" is intended to be a one-and-done miniseries (per Variety). But given the ever-shifting nature of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, it's unclear when or if the character will appear again after the show concludes. While fans will definitely have a better idea of things when the show concludes in May, "Moon Knight" director Mohamed Diab recently offered his perspective on the possibility of the series continuing on as a feature-length movie.

Mohamed Diab is uncertain if a Moon Knight movie will happen

During an interview with GamesRadar's SFX Magazine, Mohamed Diab revealed that he was uncertain if a "Moon Knight" movie would happen, but that he "dream[s] and wish[es] for a film." The director noted that in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, things weren't as simple as moving from a show to a movie because the world they've constructed is too "crazy" and "exciting."

However, Diab did express that he believes the character of Moon Knight will be around for years to come. "But I can tell you for a fact, I can see him in the next 10 years, not just the next film," Diab said. "He's a very interesting character. He's probably the most interesting character for any actor to play. Oscar is doing a great job. People already like him even from the trailer. I think the show's going to resonate with people, so I see him staying for a long time."

While it's unfortunate that Diab couldn't confirm that a "Moon Knight" movie is a certainty, the possibility that the character could be sticking around for a long time is certainly encouraging. Honestly, it makes sense, because Marvel rarely introduces a superhero, especially one who gets their own show, without the intention of using them again down the line. Still, it remains to be seen just how important Moon Knight is to the future of the MCU.
