Moon Knight is Marvel's next Disney+ series, and it looks unlike anything fans have seen in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Oscar Isaac plays a new Marvel superhero, Steven Grant, in the series. Steven discovers that he has dissociative identity disorder and his other personalities include Marc Spector and Mr. Knight. And coming out of the trailers for Moon Knight have fans wondering what role the MCU plays in the series.

'Moon Knight' Producer Confirms Show Is in the MCU

During an interview with Inverse, Moon Knight executive producer Grant Curtis reassured fans that they recognize the show is set in the MCU.

"  Moon Knight has a huge presence in the MCU," he shared. “The observant viewer is going to hear and see these Easter eggs that we drop that explain this and confirm it. »

However, the next Marvel Disney+ show could technically be standalone, separate from the MCU. So new fans wouldn't have to look at the vast Marvel library to understand the Oscar Isaac-led series.

Curtis said, “We looked at the very first comics he appeared in, back in 1975, and we looked at the years of storytelling, the decades of Moon Knight stories, [and asked] what the themes and the tones we turn to as storytellers? We never intentionally tried to make this standalone.

To sum up Curtis' comments, viewers shouldn't expect to see any Avengers making an appearance in the first four episodes. However, one or two MCU Easter Eggs will find their way into Moon Knight .

'Moon Knight' Director Teases MCU Crossovers

While Moon Knight likely won't contain any direct ties to the MCU, director Mohamed Diab has dreamed of what it would be like for Marc or Steven to meet other Marvel superheroes.

"I could see Marc and Steven driving MCU characters crazy," Diab revealed. “Marc is talking to someone with absolute seriousness, and suddenly he turns into Steven, or Moon Knight turns into Mr. Knight. I think that would be amazing.

Hopefully, Oscar Isaac will have plenty of opportunities to play with other MCU actors after the release of Moon Knight .

Will Oscar Isaac continue to play his character after the end of the series?

While it's unclear what the MCU has in store for Moon Knight's future after the show ends, Mohamed Diab hopes the character will be around for a long time.

"I dream and wish for a [Moon Knight] movie," the director told SFX Magazine. "But with Marvel, the way they play it, it's not like you're graduating from a movie. You can walk into a movie and come to a TV show and go back… It's like a crazy world. Even with the hit shows, like WandaVision , they don't do season two. She got into a movie. Maybe she will come back or not. I do not know. And it's exciting.

Diab added, "But I can tell you for a fact, I can see [Moon Knight] in the next 10 years, not just the next movie. He's a very interesting character. He is probably the most interesting character for an actor to play. Oscar does a great job. People already love it, even from the trailer. I think the show is going to resonate with people, so I see it sticking around for a long time.
