Werewolf by Night Special Discussion

While there are a lot of properties that Marvel has that may not be able to sustain a full series (though this isn’t one of them), the potential for specials and event kinds of projects makes for some good exploitation. Marvel Studios previously revealed plans for a Halloween 2022 special for Werewolf by Night. It’s set for an October 7th, 2022 debut as part of Phase 4. The special is directed by Michael Giacchino.

The cast includes:

  • Gael García Bernal as Jack Russell / Werewolf by Night
  • Laura Donnelly as Elsa Bloodstone
  • Harriet Sansom Harris as Verusa
  • Al Hamacher as Billy Swan
  • Eugenie Bondurant as Linda
  • Kirk Thatcher as Jovan
  • Jaycob Maya
  • Daniel J. Watts
  • Leonardo Nam

There are a couple of different characters that have held the name over the years, the original Jack Russell from 1972, and then Jake Gomez from the new incarnation in 2020. 

Property Concept: A secret group of monster hunters gather at Bloodstone Castle following the death of their leader and engage in a mysterious and deadly competition for a powerful relic, which will bring them face to face with a dangerous monster.
