Marvel Studios has really been in love with the newest weapon that Disney has added to their arsenal: Disney+. This year alone has already included four different MCU-related streaming series on the service, with another set to launch later this year. WandaVision even won some Emmys.

2021 was only the beginning of the expansion that Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige began with Wanda and Vision's flagship show. Thanks to these new series, the MCU has a leveled-up Wanda, a new Captain America, the introduction of Kang the Conqeuror's first Variant, and an animated exploration of the Multiverse.

It's hard to believe that it's all only just starting. Next year is set to bring even more to the table with projects such as Ms. MarvelShe-Hulk, and Secret Invasion just around the corner. 

One of the more intriguing projects is Moon Knight, which stars the incredible Oscar Isaac as Marc Spector, a man struggling with mental health issues who believes he was gifted powers from an Egyptian God.

It's a hard character to tackle and do justice to. Thankfully, it seems that the powers that be are confident in what they've been able to craft.

Kevin Feige is Feeling Good About Moon Knight

During Variety's Awards Circuit Podcast, Oscar Isaac was on hand to take part in a discussion revolving around his new film The Card Counter, as well as the upcoming Dune.

His upcoming Marvel Studios Disney+ series Moon Knight came up briefly, where Isaac revealed that not only is he "really excited and hopeful," but that even Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige is "feeling good" about the show:

"[Directors] Mohamed [Diab] and [Justin] Benson and [Aaron] Moorhead, they were so fantastic. I couldn't believe my luck and how collaborative the situation was. I'm really excited and hopeful. I don't know if it'll work, we took some big swings, ya know! And even Kevin [Feige] said, 'I don't like to count my chickens before they hatch, I'm feeling good but you never know!' So hopefully it'll look as good as it felt.”

Moon Knight is on the Horizon

It's exciting to hear that Feige is feeling good about the project. As mentioned above, the character of Marc Spector, aka Moon Knight, is a hard one to do well––and no one would know that better than the comics guru himself.

Even with his modest excitement, it shows the world that Marvel might have succeeded in giving the character the justice he deserves.

Feige hasn't been the only one teasing the intriguing promise that the series has to offer. The show's star, Oscar Isaac, hasn't been able to stop talking about how insane the show will be. The actor teased that simply signing on the show was the best risk that he's ever taken.

While not every positive or negative comment Kevin Feige has said about various Marvel projects is known, the next release right around the corner is Eternals––which happens to be a film that the Marvel Studios President claimed had the best pitch he had ever heard.

While Moon Knight doesn't have a specified release next year, Eternals will be hitting the big screen in just a few weeks on November 5.
