Moon Knight Is A Huge Success: Even Beating DC’s Peacemaker!

MOVIE NEWS – Marvel Studios’ TV series are proving as popular as their movies, and even brand new characters like the Moon Knight are proving a big draw.



Marvel’s Moon Knight has brought something new to the MCU with an action-packed supernatural series that isn’t really connected to any other Marvel projects so far. While that could be considered a risk, like many other Marvel Studios Disney+ series, Moon Knight performed quite nicely on the platform, and after the season wrapped up last week, it turned out to be the highest-grossing streaming premiere of the year so far on all platforms.

While Moon Knight was undoubtedly one of the most popular series on Disney+, the chances of a second season are doubtful…

While there’s no doubt that Moon Knight was one of the most popular series on Disney+, the chances of a second season are different depending on who you ask. In recent interviews, both lead actor Oscar Isaac and director Mohamed Diab have stated that they have no idea if they plan on giving Moon Knight another outing. In contrast, however, the series ended with a very teasing post-credits scene that almost demands a second season, and one of the consulting producers revealed that there is still much to discover about the character: We have only seen the beginning of Marc Spector’s story…
