WEREWOLF BY NIGHT Surprise Trailer From Marvel Studios

By Matthew Klein | September 13 2022 | Graphic NovelsComics


One of the most exciting surprises at the D23 Expo this past weekend was the announcement and trailer drop for Marvel’s “Special Presentation” of Werewolf by Night. The trailer presents this one-shot coming to Disney+ on October 7th as a Hammer Horror style approach that looks uproariously fun.

Werewolf by Night is led by Gael Garcia Bernal (Mozart in the Jungle) as Jack Russell, and his titular alter ego, plus Laura Donnelly in an unnamed role but one potentially very familiar with comics fans.

Other famous Marvel monster Man-Thing is in a blink-and-you’ll-miss-it cameo within the trailer along with the now familiar Time Variant Authority (TVA from Loki) who are wielding their batons and hunting someone or something.

If you’re unfamiliar with Jack Russell and his curse then definitely check out some of the reads listed below to learn more before feasting your eyes on what’s expected to be a bloody good time next month!

Monster Hunting is in their blood – and they’re the best dad and daughter in the business!

But what terrible evil could make her team up with natural enemies like Morbius, Werewolf by Night and the Living Mummy? And can even their combined might take down a killer so vicious that even the monsters are scared to death? Plus: The complete 1970s adventures of Ulysses Bloodstone! He’s been battling monsters for ten thousand years – but when he stumbles onto a worldwide conspiracy, will the truth about the Bloodgem be the death of him?
