Marvel Studios made 2021 about the Multiverse but they set to descend into the horror genre with the reboot of Blade, Morbius, Moon Knight and an upcoming Disney Plus Halloween project.
Per Bloody Disgusting:
Disney+ is howling at the moon as they continue to get into the Halloween spirit for 2022. In addition to the hotly-anticipated Hocus Pocus sequel, the streamer has begun casting its werewolf series based on the Marvel character Werewolf by Night!
It was confirmed today that Gael Garcia Bernal (M. Night Shyamalan’s Old) is playing a character who is capable of transforming into a werewolf while retaining human intellects, reports Deadline.
Here’s the kicker. They add that Laura Donnelly (“The Nevers”, Dredd) has also joined the cast, speculating that she could potentially be Nina Price, who becomes Vampire by Night!
“Price is the niece of the character Jack Russell/Werewolf by Night and a vampire/werewolf hybrid. She carried the Lycan gene and was further changed after being bitten by a vampire.”
“Jack Russell is a descendant of the mystically-altered offshoot of humans known as Lycanthropes. During the night of the full moon and the two nights surrounding it he is forced to mutate into a werewolf, a large, powerful form which is a hybrid of human and wolf, and loses his human intellect. Through a series of events, he is also capable of mutating voluntarily outside of the full moon, at which time he remains in control.”
