Last month Marvel and Disney+ released the very cool Halloween special with creatures Werewolf at night (You can read our 8/10 rating HERE). So far, there’s been no word on when the characters introduced in this special – the titular werewolf Jack Russell (Gael García Bernal), the daughter of monster hunter Elsa Bloodstone (Laura Donnelly) and the swamp monster Man-Thing – will return any future ones Movies, specials or series. But during an interview with The Wrap, Donnelly was excited about the idea of returning for a follow-up.
Donnelly said: “What I love about this particular story for Elsa is that it makes us feel like we’re just at the beginning of something for her; She is not introduced as the character we know from the comics. It’s her before, or maybe that was her and something happened – we don’t know. And so it feels like it’s just a little taste of the many, many layers that lie beneath and a huge backstory. Every opportunity to explore [a follow-up], I would jump into, and I would also like to explore Elsa and Jack’s relationship. That’s just one that’s just hinted at and you see the beginning of something blooming and we don’t know what that is. And I love working with Gael. I would be very, very happy – just give me a call.“
Composer Michael Giacchino directed Werewolf at night, from a screenplay by Heather Quinn and Peter Cameron. The special has the following synopsis:
On a dark and somber night, a secret cabal of monster hunters emerge from the shadows and gather in the foreboding Bloodstone Temple after the death of their leader. In a strange and macabre commemoration of the leader’s life, the participants are thrust into a mysterious and deadly competition for a powerful relic – a hunt that will eventually face them against a dangerous monster.
Giacchino previously directed the short film Monster Challenge and an episode of the animated series Star Trek: Short hikes. He continued to work with Marvel Spider-Man: Homecoming, Spider-Man: Far from Home, Spider-Man: No Way Home, Doctor Strange, Captain America: The Winter Soldier, Captain America: Civil War, and The Falcon and Winter soldier.
Speaking to Empire, Giacchino described Werewolf at night as a “love letter to monsters and the humanity behind them”.
