Jack Russell, a character first seen in Marvel Comics, adopts the identity of Werewolf by Night. A family curse has turned him into a werewolf every night. Jack Russell is a formidable and nuanced superhero as the Werewolf by Night, thanks to his enhanced strength, agility, and senses.
Werewolf by Night, Marvel Studios’ first feature-length “special presentation” inspired by the classic monster films of the 1930s and 1940s, premiered last year but did not receive a Funko Pop release. Today is the day before Funko’s huge San Diego Comic-Con 2023 event, so they saved that drop for today. Although it is better late than never, Werewolf by Night deserved better. The Werewolf by Night Funko Pop Wave is now available for pre-order!

Michael Giacchino, a regular composer for Marvel films (Spider-Man: No Way Home, Thor: Love and Thunder), makes his directorial debut with Werewolf by Night, a supernatural thriller that introduces the monster Man-Thing, the undead Ulysses Bloodstone, and his (alive) monster-hunter daughter, Elsa Bloodstone (Laura Donnelly). It “felt like a fun way to introduce the Werewolf by Night character, the concept of monsters in the MCU, but do it so there’s just a tease,” said co-executive producer Brian Gay of the nearly hour-long special.
Now that you’re interested, let’s see where your enthusiasm takes us for the simple reason that the special reveals that monsters have existed for centuries. So consider this a sample. For the first time, the veil has been lifted. Disney’s synopsis for Werewolf by Night reads as follows: “On a dark and somber night, a secret cabal of monster hunters emerge from the shadows and gather at the foreboding Bloodstone Temple following the death of their leader.”
A mysterious and macabre memorial to the leader’s life thrusts the attendees into a hunt for a powerful relic, bringing them face to face with a terrifying monster. The chilling special draws inspiration from classic horror movies of the 1930s and 1940s and aims to create a sense of dread and the macabre while providing plenty of suspense and scares as we explore a new corner of the Marvel Cinematic Universe!
