For Marvel fans, Disney+ is experiencing a resurgence on multiple levels. Daredevil and The Punisher, two of Marvel’s most popular television series, have recently been added to the service’s catalogue. As part of Disney+’s 2022 Phase 4 slate, Oscar Isaac’s Moon Knight is set to kick things off.
Despite Isaac’s Moon Knight being part of the larger MCU, the series has been marketed as one that stands on its own for the time being. However, it isn’t all bad news. Fans recently spotted an Easter egg that linked back to Marvel Studios’ The Falcon and the Winter Soldier. Even Mark Ruffalo’s Hulk is rumored to be in the series. However, that won’t be confirmed until much later in the plot.
No matter when Marc Spector joins the ranks of the MCU’s most powerful heroes, theories and ideas hint at a time when Isaac’s solo series will be complete. Currently, Isaac has a list of characters he’d like to see in the MCU and appear alongside him.
Is Moon Knight better off with the Midnight Sons or Earth’s Mightiest Heroes when it comes to teaming up? Isaac said he preferred the latter. In particular, Punisher, Ghost Rider, Daredevil, and Blade were mentioned by Isaac as part of a “very interesting group”:
Interviewer: My last question: I’d like to see Moon Knight with two other Avengers characters. Which two characters would you like to have as teammates
Isaac: The truth, for me, more than the Avengers, is the Midnight Sons. Imagine, with Punisher, Ghost Rider, Daredevil, Blade… I think that would be a very interesting group.
There have already been numerous theories about how characters from Disney+’s Marvel shows could join the MCU. In the wake of Charlie Cox and Vincent D’Onofrio revisiting their Daredevil characters in NWH, more crossovers could be on the horizon.
This is not the first time Isaac has broached the subject of bringing Moon Knight and the Avengers together, even if it is a long way off.
In the upcoming She-Hulk series, Charlie Cox is rumored to reprise his role as Daredevil, while Jon Bernthal’s Punisher has yet to become an official MCU character. Marvel Studios now owns the rights to all of these heroes, but there are no plans in place for any of them outside of their shows on Disney+.
The Midnight Suns, a team that traditionally includes Moon Knight, could become a live-action version of the Midnight Suns if these characters join the fold.
Since changing the name from Midnight Sons, Marvel has used this group more frequently in multiple media forms. This could lead to an MCU introduction. It’s possible that Blade and Ghost Rider will join this team at some point. However, they’d be welcomed as one of the darker superheroes in the franchise.
