🚨 There are obviously MASSIVE spoilers ahead! 🚨
I think it's safe to say that 2022 has been packed full of Marvel content, and what has been really fun is to watch the MCU play with genre and step outside of its comfort zone with some very exciting projects.
And one of those new and exciting projects is Werewolf by Night, Marvel's first TV special, and it was one of the best things the MCU has done. Period.
For years, Marvel has reportedly been developing a project around the character Werewolf by Night, and it finally became a reality with this Halloween special starring Gael García Bernal (Jack Russell/Werewolf by Night), Laura Donnelly (Elsa Bloodstone), and Harriet Harris (Verussa Bloodstone).
Directed by Michael Giacchino and written by Heather Quinn and Peter Cameron, Werewolf by Night follows a secret group of monster hunters who are summoned to Bloodstone Manor, where they participate in a competitive hunt to determine their new leader following the death of Ulysses Bloodstone.
This TV special was honestly perfect. The MCU wasn't afraid to be bloody and campy, and it fit these characters and this story beautifully. I mean, c'mon, the introduction of Man-Thing/Ted was flawless.
Everything from the casting to direction to the music, which Michael Giacchino composed as well, made Werewolf by Night one of the best Marvel projects this year, and I really hope Marvel sees the success of this TV special and we get to see more out-of-the-box Marvel characters shine in this format.
Werewolf by Night's introduction to the MCU is also huge because in the comics, he is part of a team called the Midnight Sons, which has consisted of characters like Blade, Morbius, Ghost Rider, Scarlet Witch, Moon Knight, Doctor Strange, and more. Also, in recent comics featuring the group, they have met up with Agatha Harkness, Clea Strange, and more.
Anyway, Werewolf by Night is already being praised by everyone who has had the chance to watch it. So, here are some of the best reactions:
