Mohamed Diab, one of the directors of the upcoming Moon Knight TV series, has confirmed a disappointing piece of news about the fate of WandaVision in the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU).
In a recent interview with SFX Magazine, Diab was sharing his hopes for the future of the mysterious superhero, Moon Knight (Oscar Isaac), in the MCU when he casually stated that WandaVision is not returning for a season 2 on Disney+, despite getting a positive reception from critics and audiences alike.
“I dream and wish for a [Moon Knight] film,” Diab told SFX (via GamesRadar). “But with Marvel, the way they play it, it’s not like you graduate into a film. You can go into a film and come to a TV show and go back.”
Diab continued, “It’s like a crazy world. Even with the successful shows, like WandaVision, they’re not doing season 2. She jumped into a film, maybe she’s going to come back or not. I don’t know. And that’s exciting.”
Diab’s comment is the latest indication that WandaVision won’t be getting a season 2, after its cast and crew maintained that it’s a limited series.
Though there’s currently no WandaVision season 2 on the horizon, Wanda Maximoff’s (Elizabeth Olsen) story will continue to be told in the MCU. Wanda will be next seen in Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, which is set to open in U.S. theaters on May 6th.
There have also been rumors that Olsen is finally getting her own solo Scarlet Witch movie after Marvel Studios extended her contract by seven years last month. It’s also likely that Olsen will reprise her role in the WandaVision spinoff series Agatha: House of Harkness, which will star Kathryn Hahn in the titular role.
