Exclusive: we’ve learned Marvel’s classic shape-shifting anti-hero Werewolf by Night, aka Jack Russell, will soon make his debut in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
Our sources aren’t clear on where Werewolf will first appear but ‘Moon Knight’ is a possibility since Moon Knight made his comic debut in Werewolf by Night #32 and they have had strong ties ever since. Werewolf also has major connections to Blade and Dracula, and with the former due to get his own solo film soon, it wouldn’t be shocking to see him show up there. We have also heard Dracula will be in ‘Blade’, making this even more likely. Our sources also indicate a spin-off for Werewolf is already being explored.
Werewolf by Night first appeared in Marvel Spotlight #2. He is a descendant of a line of lycanthropes and can choose to transform when it is not a full moon but is forced to transform when it is a full moon. He is usually portrayed as an anti-hero because he can not always control his powers.
A ‘Moon Knight’ Disney+ series was announced at D23 this weekend.
Two-time Academy Award winner and Emmy nominee Mahershala Ali is starring in a ‘Blade’ reboot for Marvel.
