Moon KnightThe submission of as a limited series to the Emmys would seem to suggest to Marvel that it has no intention of introducing other seasons of the series, in the same way as Wanda Vision was entered into the awards last year. Shows like The Falcon and the Winter Soldierhowever, were put into dramatic categories as Marvel executives began planning for future seasons.
“We’ve definitely thrown ideas around because we always like to keep thinking about where things can go, but we also, frankly, in the crush of the pandemic, we’re just trying to finish the show and make sure it’s fate into a timely question,” Marvel mainstay Nate Moore said at the time. “Hopefully at the end of this season you see the potential for what we could say in a later season.”
“I think Wanda Vision is a show you can only do once. She can’t go back to that reality,” he added. “It’s such a full arc of what this character can do and what this story wanted to do, whereas Falcon and Winter Soldier is really to process, for me, the legacy of what a superhero is, through the lens of Captain America and his shield, but ultimately through the lens of all these different characters. And it’s a story that I think you can revisit in later seasons because it’s an evergreen story. It’s a conversation.”
Moon Knight is now streaming in full on Disney+.
