As Disney+/Marvel sequence wrap their first seasons, usually there’s some type of information of both a spin-off sequence or season 2 being firmed up, i.e. Loki made it recognized instantly we’d be getting a season 2 in its remaining S1 episode, and it was introduced shortly after WandaVision ended that Agatha can be the follow-up.
Last night time in the course of the epilogue of the Oscar Isaac sequence Moon Knight, it appeared, certainly we’d see extra of the superhero who’s battling a dissociative identification dysfunction as we realized about his new, third character, the underworld limo driver Jake Lockley. It’s Jake who wheels cult chief and former Ammit avatar Arthur Harrow (Ethan Hawke) out of an asylum and shoots him within the head behind a Rolls Royce.
Deadline requested the sequence episodic director and EP Mohamed Diab whether or not he’s anticipated to be again for extra work on season 2.
“We don’t know if there’s a subsequent season,” Diab informed Deadline in the present day.
“Marvel doesn’t go together with a standard approach, so even when they just like the character and wish to lengthen the world, it may very well be season 2, it may very well be a standalone movie, or he can be part of one other superhero’s journey,” added the director of the season one finale.
“I’m stored at the hours of darkness, similar to the followers,” Diab added.

The different huge factor that occurred final night time was Layla, Marc Spector’s spouse (May Calamawy), got here into her energy as a superhero; she turning into the avatar of Tawaret, and becoming a member of within the combat towards Harrow.
Where does she go from right here?

“Having her associate with somebody fully completely different from her, (like) Tawaret, can be so fascinating they usually can drive one another loopy. Her studying does she must be a superhero now or not, as a result of she hates the thought proper now, or possibly she must be taught it’s vital or not. There’s a lot room to go there, I don’t know what’s going to occur.”
