On Disney+ tomorrow, the horror anthology Werewolf by Night is expected to be a smashing success for Marvel Studios. Released exclusively on Disney+, the film represents the company’s first foray into the horror genre if you don’t count Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness.
Considering the character’s ties to both Blade and Moon Knight, one may assume that they would both make an appearance in the movie.
The reason why the two characters aren’t in Werewolf by Night has been explained by director Michael Giacchino and executive producer Brian Gay.
A new interview with Brandon Davis of ComicBook.com reveals the pair’s reasoning for the cancellation.
“To be honest, we never discussed that. We discussed Blade to some extent, but ultimately it was decided that, hey, if we’re going to look at this and I’ve always classified it as an episode of The Twilight Zone, then that’s exactly what it is “As Giacchino informed us. “Yes, let’s keep it under wraps. Let’s see what a night looks like in Jack and Elsa’s lives.
I was like, “No, let’s just do this” because I know that everyone else is looking for a way to feel more connected and that they want this other person in the room. It is part of the same universe as everything else here. Sure, but let’s not fret about it right now.
Perhaps one day we’ll have to address that issue. But for now, I just wanted to tell the tale of one night in these characters’ lives, and maybe it would be something you could jump into without knowing anything about them and yet enjoy.”
“You’ve read enough comics to know that, and notably Moon Night, it’s a huge stretch. Because of the one-on-one nature of the special format, we believed it was important to put the spotlight squarely on Jack. It’s hard to resist him.
This guy is fascinating. What I will say is that he seemed like he needed a thorough introduction and that characters have a habit of running into each other down the road.
The thrill of it all, after more than a decade of Marvel movies and TV shows, is when they crossover. First and foremost, though, you need to fall in love with Jack. And that was precisely our goal.” The executive at Marvel Studios continued.
There will be two more Avengers movies within the next three years, as revealed by Marvel Studios. Both Avengers: Secret Wars and Avengers: The Kang Dynasty will be released in theaters that year.
Despite how far off this is, Marvel movies often include post-credit scenes that hint at what’s to come. However, it appears like they may be taking a new approach this time.
Marvel Studios head Kevin Feige recently discussed the potential significance of the post-credits scenes for the next two Avengers movies in an interview with ComicBook.com.
“In reality, none of the labels ever solely refer to the future. Captain America advises the kids to learn patience, adding that they are occasionally disappointed after waiting for something that turns out to be unimportant.
It’s a good time for us every time, “Feige informed us. “We’d rather not have a cookie-cutter experience. It follows that not all tags will have a matching node. The movies and TV series may or may not have anything in common.
Having things that connect and develop toward the broader tale is great, but I believe it’s just as vital that we can have solo introductory stories like Ms. Marvel and Moon Knight. It’s clear that The Kang Dynasty and the Multiverse Saga are part of a bigger story arc, and I’m hopeful that readers will follow along.
Even though it’s not as entertaining as many of our Phase 1, 2, and 3 movies were, there are still moments where you’re riding the fast track to the big finish.”
Thor: Love and Thunder was the most recent film from Marvel Studios to be released in theaters. Chris Hemsworth plays the title role, and the film also features performances from Tessa Thompson as Valkyrie, Natalie Portman as Jane Foster/Mighty Thor, Russell Crowe as Zeus, Jaimie Alexander as Lady Sif, Chris Pratt as Peter Quill/Star-Lord, Sean Gunn as Kraglin, Dave Bautista as Drax the Destroyer, Karen Gillan as Nebula, and Christian Bale as Gorr the God Butcher.
Waititi will not only helm the film, but he will also star as Korg once again. Now, only on Disney+, you can watch Thor: Love and Thunder.
