Classic Marvel Figurine Collection Magazine #188 Werewolf By Night Eaglemoss

Werewolf by Night is the name applied to two fictional characters who are werewolves appearing in American comic books published by Marvel Comics. The Werewolf by Night (usually referred to by other characters simply as the Werewolf) first appeared in Marvel Spotlight #2 (February 1972).

The Jack Russell version of Werewolf by Night first appeared in Marvel Spotlight #2 (February 1972) and was based on an idea by Roy Thomas. The series name was suggested by Stan Lee and the initial creative team was Gerry Conway and Mike Ploog, who worked from a plot by Roy and Jeanie Thomas for the first issue. Readers have often pointed out that the lead character’s name, Jack Russell, is also a breed of dog. Conway has said that while he cannot remember how he came up with the name, it is unlikely that he was making this canine reference consciously, since he did not own a dog and never lived with one growing up.

A Halloween special based on Werewolf by Night is scheduled to be released Disney+ in October 2022, with Gael García Bernal as Jack Russell, Laura Donnelly in an undisclosed role, and Michael Giacchino directing.

Marvel’s Halloween special brings werewolves to the MCU
Werewolf by Night will howl at the moon this October

Marvel Studios will celebrate spooky season with a new Halloween-themed special coming to Disney Plus called Werewolf by Night. The special will focus on the Marvel Comics character Werewolf by Night, who is a literal werewolf, and will star Gael García Bernal in the title role.

At D23, Marvel Studios gave fans their first look at the “special presentation” dropping on Disney Plus this October. The first trailer for Werewolf by Night is in black and white, and oozes grindhouse movie vibes. The special seems to be themed around a hunt, with the titular werewolf hiding among a group of supernatural hunters. (It also appears to draw some inspiration from the popular social deduction game Werewolf…)

Michael Giacchino, who is likely better known for his soundtrack-composing skills than his directorial talents, will direct the special. Joining García Bernal in the Disney Plus Halloween special is actor Laura Donnelly (The Nevers, Outlander), who will reportedly play the monster-hunting hero Elsa Bloodstone.

García Bernal will play the original version of the character Werewolf by Night, who was named — no giggling, please — Jack Russell. In the Marvel comics, Russell hailed from Transylvania and descended from a line of lycanthropy-affected ancestors. But the phrase “Werewolf by Night” greatly predates the character of the same name; Marvel Comics predecessor Atlas Comics published a short story by that name in the pages of Marvel Tales in 1953.

Werewolf by Night will also bring another longtime supernatural Marvel Comics character to the MCU: Man-Thing, the part-man, part-plant swamp monster who debuted in Marvel’s Savage Tales #1 in 1971.

Werewolf by Night comes to Disney Plus on Oct. 7.
