The planned television special Marvel’s Werewolf By Night combines elements of action, comedy, drama, horror, and superhero stories. Michael Giacchino directed the film for the Disney Plus streaming service. The film’s producers are Kevin Feige, Louis D’Esposito, and Victoria Alonso.
Characterized as “werewolf by night,” it was created by Roy Thomas and Jeanie Thomas, who also created the popular Marvel Comics character of the same name. In 1972, Gerry Conway and Mike Ploog came up with the idea for it.
Werewolf by Night Release Date
You won’t have to wait until the end of the month to watch Werewolf by Night, despite the fact that it was made with Halloween in mind.
In less than a month, on October 7, the special will be available to stream on Disney+. Although this may be a one-time occurrence, it appears to be interesting enough to watch again and again during the month of October.
Who’s in The Werewolf by Night Cast?
Jack Russell, played by Gael Garcia Bernal (Coco), is cursed to turn into the Werewolf By Night, although he retains his human intelligence. The MCU debut of Werewolf by Night will take place in this one-hour special.
The other monster hunters at odds with Gael are Laura Donnelly (Outlander) in the role of Elsa Bloodstone and Harriet Sansom Harris (Desperate Housewives, Licorice Pizza) in the role of Verusa.
Starring alongside Kirk Thatcher (Gremlins 2) as Jovan and Al Hamacher (True Memoirs of an International Assassin) as Billy Swan, the cast also includes Eugenie Bondurant (The Conjuring: The Devil Made Me Do It) as Linda.
Reports have also circulated that Loki’s Time Variance Authority members and the Marvel character Man-Thing will make appearances in the show, though their casting remains a mystery.
Werewolf by Night Plot
An official synopsis of Werewolf by Night reads as follows:
“The death of their leader prompts the members of a shadowy group of monster hunters to emerge from the night and assemble in the foreboding Bloodstone Temple.
Attendees of the leader’s bizarre and gruesome memorial are thrown into a deadly competition for a mysterious and powerful relic, a search that will bring them face to face with a terrifying monster.
This unsettling special is set in a previously unexplored region of the Marvel Cinematic Universe and was inspired by classic horror films of the 1930s and 1940s in order to provoke feelings of dread and the macabre.”
