The Wrap has reported that Marvel’s Werewolf by Night Special casts lead actor in Gael García Bernal! That’s the latest Barside Buzz about this rumored upcoming Halloween Special. It is currently unknown which version of the character will appear in the show. The title has been used by both Jack Russell, and Jake Gomez in the Marvel comics. Neither character was Latino, but it was said Marvel were looking specifically for a Latino lead in this show. Looks like they got their man.
This particular MCU version may be completely different from either comic book character. The idea here is that Werewolf by Night will be Halloween special in the vain that Hawkeye is seen as a Holidays show. There are also rumors that the character may make his debut, or be teased within Moon Knight. Moon Knight’s first appearance in the comics was in Werewolf by Night. Given the way things are being set up, it appears Werewolf by Night (Name may change) will eventually team up with other supernatural elements coming to the MCU. such as Blade, Moon Knight, Black Knight, and maybe been Michael Morbius.
It remains to be seen whether Marvel Studios can produce a genuinely scary, but suitable for kids Halloween Special. That would however surely be the aim here?
