Werewolf By Night was finally revealed as a premiere in October, and it instantly ignited fan theories of a crossover with Moon Knight. However, while this may well be some sort of endgame plan for the supernatural side of the MCU, director Michael Giacchino said there were no “immediate” plans for the two characters to meet. While discussing the upcoming addition to the MCU, Giacchino told ET Canada:
“Moon Knight first appeared in Werewolf by Night in the comics years ago. That’s what everyone thinks. Yeah, there are no immediate plans for something like that. »
Marvel Comics fans are already well aware of the crossover potential of the two characters, with Marc Spector’s Moon Knight debuting in a 1975 edition of Werewolf by Night three years after the lycanthrope was introduced. Although it seems like it’s not planned at the moment, it’s clear that Giacchino hasn’t ruled out an upcoming crossover. As we know Marvel Studios likes to fuel characters and upcoming plots in the main MCU narrative, there’s no doubt we’ll see a supernatural super-team come together somewhere down the line with the likes of Blade also coming in. in the franchisee soon.
Werewolf By Night will find a place in the MCU after a unique introduction.
Many people were quick to dismiss Marvel shows like She-Hulk : Attorney at Law as not being as serious as some of the epic MCU movies like Avengers: Endgame or Spider-Man: No Coming Home. However, in the grand scheme of Kevin Feige’s master plan, everything has its place, and certain characters are only allowed to appear when it’s their time and in a format that may differ from the tried and true MCU formula. For this reason, while some thought Werewolf by Night could be teased in Moon Knight, Jeremy Slater previously discussed writing the Oscar Isaac-directed series and how there was never an option to bring the werewolf into the show. He said:
“There were no discussions about Werewolf by Night per se, just because they already had plans for him, and Kevin [Feige] had an idea of how he wanted to use it, which I’m still not aware of. I am as in the dark as you.
Since the first trailer of Werewolf by Night debuted over the weekend, it became clear why Marvel wanted to wait to allow the character to make her first appearance on someone else’s show. The sequence’s gothic ’40s horror vibes, with its clear homage to old universal horror movies like Frankenstein, The Werewolf having appeared on another show for the first time, might have taken away some of the impacts of the brooding black-and-white special that’s coming to Disney+ in a few weeks.
Werewolf By Night will premiere on Disney+ on October 7, while those who want to catch up on the adventures of Moon Knight can find the entire series on Disney+ now.
