When the traditional Marvel intro rolled for She-Hulk: Attorney At Law, there was no Moon Knight. Natalie Portman’s Jane Foster/Mighty Thor could be spotted alongside Ms. Marvel, but Moon Knight was no longer present.

This angered fans for several different reasons, but one big surprise was that it seems that Marvel took inspiration from Oscar Isaac and still managed to not promote his super hero.

With Marvel no longer signing actors with multi-year contracts, it is hard for MCU fans to know exactly when a certain actor might stop playing a certain super hero. With Oscar Isaac, it’s hard to know whether or not the actor will get to play the character again.

For now, rumors of Season 2 happening are all fans have to hope for, with D23 potentially confirming the second season. If not, fans might worry that Marvel might leave Moon Knight behind as the MCU continues to expand.
