Marvel’s classic shape-shifting anti-hero Werewolf by Night, aka Jack Russell, will soon make his debut in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
Geeks WorldWide reports the studio is currently looking to introduce Jack Russell, aka Werewolf by Night, to the Marvel Cinematic Universe in the near future. The lycanthropic anti-hero was first introduced in 1972’s Marvel Spotlight #2, and is a descendant of a line of werewolves. Unlike the classic versions of the creature, Werewolf by Night can transform into his demonic counterpart at any time, but automatically becomes one at a full moon.
First and foremost, many would probably think Russell would be appearing in the newly-announced Moon Knight show set to hit Disney+ at some point in the next few years. The two characters have had a pretty long relationship in the Marvel comics mythos — in fact, Moon Knight first appeared in Werewolf by Night #32 from Doug Moench and Don Perlin.
Another option would be the Mahershala Ali-led Blade movie announced at Comic-Con. Despite knowing virtually nothing about the long-awaited remake, Werewolf by Night is definitely something that’d fit in the vampire-hunting mythos the Daywalker oftentimes finds himself in.
There is also always the possibility that the character could get his own movie or TV series, should the report of him joining the MCU in the first place prove true.
