Marvel’s Monsters In MCU Have Been There Forever
night werewolf executive producer that the presence of Marvel’s monsters in the MCU has been there this whole time.
night werewolf Executive producer Brian Gay recently revealed that Marvel’s monsters in the MCU have already been involved in their films and other media. Now that the Halloween season is right around the corner, Marvel is introducing these monsters to viewers and fans.
In an exclusive interview with The Direct, Gay confirmed that Marvel’s monsters in MCU have survived since before:
“I think one of the coolest things about the special is that it just takes the corner off the monsters in the MCU. So it’s not just the monsters that are part of Werewolf by Night, but the ones that were hanging on the wall, there’s also some of that artwork. What all of this gives is the idea that for centuries there have been monsters in the world of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and they have been hunted down, hunted, or kept at bay by those hunters.
With that commentary, Gay built the Disney+ TV special as a spotlight on these unseen monsters in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
A look back at Marvel’s monsters in the MCU timeline
Marvel’s monsters in MCU have been kept in check or prevented from getting more attention in previous movies or series. The introduction of these supernatural creatures would result in a clash of principles against the scientific elements of Iron Man movies and more.
The producers were very careful at first to decide this question until Thor and the Asgardians were in the limelight. The crux of the dialogue is when Odinson says that science and magic are the same things. With those words, everything fell into place. Today, the American production company is certain that fans will welcome Marvel’s monsters into the MCU.
As for vampires, previous Marvel shows have acknowledged them many times. For example, in Loki, it has been mentioned that an Eternal has the same level of power as a typical vampire. And, of course, who could forget Blade rebooting in 2023?
Werewolf by Night’s Role in introducing more monsters
night werewolf opens the door to bringing Marvel’s monsters into the MCU. Leading this Disney+ special is Gael García Bernal, who plays Jack Russell. Due to a curse, Jack transforms into a werewolf while retaining his intellect as a human. Footage from the show’s trailer shows Jack being involved with a group of monsters.
The special’s director Michael Giacchino said the show “evolved into this love letter to the monsters and the humanity behind them” when speaking with Marvel Studios boss Kevin Feige. , in an exclusive interview with Empire.
According to Giacchino, night werewolf is “far from Marvel’s most famous character”, but “the comics are perhaps best remembered these days as where Moon Knight first appeared on the page – it’s is the one who made a real impression on the young Giacchino”.
It’s also proof that Feige isn’t afraid to break standards even in his own company’s usual standards, like night werewolf attempts to be an homage to old school horror. Something the MCU hasn’t done so far.
The director even teased that his own nephew “watched it recently and couldn’t sleep that night.” I guess that would be the same feeling for viewers watching the special, especially once new monsters and vampires hit the screen. There is also the highly anticipated film Blade will be released in theaters in 2023. The film will possibly feature the monsters and vampires that will make an appearance in this special.
