Twitter is abuzz today with the news that a second season of Moon Knight is in the making.
Moon Knight director Mohamed Diab and Oscar Isaac are currently in Cairo. When asked by a fan if season 2 was happening, Oscar Isaac replied, “Why else would we be here? (Source)”
SEASON 1 SPOILERS BELOW.
Overall the first season was a major success. Oscar Isaac was able to show off his remarkable acting talent by portraying two very different personalities: Tough guy American mercenary Marc Spector, and the meek, mild mannered, British gift shop cashier, Steven Grant.
The Disney+ action filled super hero story of Egyptian mythos and gods was very fun. I was definitely entertained.
However, my only hang up about the show was what happened in episode three of season one. Something so silly and ridiculous I wanted to throw a gold plated scarab at my TV.
Marc Spector is in Egypt trying to locate Ammit’s tomb, all while vying for control over his and Steven’s shared body. It’s critical for them to find Ammit’s tomb quickly, or else Arthur (the bad guy) will get there first, and resurrect a very dangerous goddess into the world.
However, in order to find Ammit’s tomb, the good guys need to know how the night sky looked one millennia earlier.
So what do they do?
Does Marc Spector or Layla download an astronomy app like SkySafari to see what the sky would’ve looked like a thousand years ago? The app costs $5.
NOPE! TOO EASY.
Instead, Khonshu, Egyptian lord of the moon and vengeance, changes the ENTIRE freaking night sky! This is a move so controversial it gets him imprisoned in stone by the other gods.
And all he had to do was pay $5 for an app.
Oh well. Their version was more dramatic than mine. Script called for it I guess.
