Marvel Studios’ Moon Knight series ended at the perfect cliffhanger, with the protagonist’s new alter ego being introduced to fans at the very end. Oscar Isaac’s Jake Lockley was an avatar that fans had been waiting to see appear, and many wondered if his introduction meant that the series would return for a second season. Director Mohamed Diab has now teased Season 2 by sharing a viral TikTok video featuring Isaac and himself, which is seemingly shot in Cairo.
The TikTok video, featuring the Moon Knight director and Isaac, went viral on social media on Wednesday, and Diab has now shared it on his official Twitter account. “Moon Knight season 2?,” he teases, with absolutely no confirmation on whether the video confirming the second season of the Marvel Studios series is fake, a joke, or his subtle way of confirming the return of Lockley and May Calamawy’s Layla El-Faouly. Fan theories have started spinning online, and it seems like it’s all but confirmed that Moon Knight’s first season isn’t the end of Lockley’s journey.
In the viral video, a TikToker who goes by the name hayaattiaaa films a selfie video on a boat cruising by The Nile Ritz-Carlton in Cairo. “The question on everyone’s mind, is there a Season 2?,” she asks and pans the camera towards Moon Knight director Diab. He appears confused, looks around, and asks innocently “of Moon Knight?” The camera then pans to Isaac, who asks with a smirk “why else would we be in Cairo?” The pair is dressed casually, and seem to either be enjoying a leisurely cruise, or scouting the next shoot location.
Since Diab shared the video on Twitter, fans are convinced that this is Marvel’s way of confirming Season 2 of Moon Knight. However, there has been no official confirmation released by the studio yet, so this situation could play either way. The TikToker’s followers, many of whom appear to be fans of Isaac and Moon Knight, are celebrating in the comments section, with many wondering how she remained so calm when sitting right next to the famous duo on a boat.
Moon Knight told the story of Isaac’s Stephen Grant, who lives with Dissociative Identity Disorder and occasionally meets Marc Spector, his more vicious alter ego. They are seen dealing directly with F. Murray Abraham’s Khonshu, the Egyptian god of the moon, and are on a mission to stop Ammit, the devourer of souls, from punishing innocent people. The series ended with a lot of possibilities for the protagonist’s journey to continue, and it remains to be seen whether the TikTok video is in fact telling the truth.
Moon Knight is streaming on Disney Plus.
