werewolf is much more than just a one-time special.
In a previous interview with The Direct, Werewolf at night Executive producer Brian Gay revealed what the special was like “I just peel the corner of the monsters in the MCU.” Not only that, but he also confirmed that some of the monsters featured in the project certainly would “reappear” down the line.
That’s an exciting prospect, to say the least. The Marvel Cinematic Universe is vast, so it’s always exciting to be introduced to a whole new corner of it.
Now, Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige has shared some of his thoughts on what werewolf has in stock and it seems so.
The monster-filled future of the MCU
In conversation with IGNcast and crew of Werewolf at night talked about how exciting the project is and how it will contribute to the MCU.
For those who think this one-off special might not matter much, it might be best to reconsider. According to Kevin Feige, President of Marvel Studios, this world is filled with monsters “will become very important in the end” on the future of the MCU:
“We’re introducing a world that will ultimately be very important to the future of the MCU… we wanted to explore entirely new characters and entirely new sides of the MCU with this unusual, fun, and frightening take on the supernatural.”
Director Michael Giacchino noted how the project is “a gigantic mash up” from older monster movies:
“Werewolf by Night is just a huge love letter to all these old movies that I absolutely loved and grew up watching… some of the scariest things I saw as a kid were just the shadows of things. All the horrible things you hear. For us, that was the goal.”
Giacchino continued, noting that part of what makes monster movies so special is that they make great allegories for those who “[feel] unlike everyone:”
“I love monster movies because they’re such allegories of feeling different from everyone else.”
Laura Donnelly, the actress behind Elsa Bloodstone in the special, made that clear Werewolf at night is something “We’ve never looked in [the MCU] Before:”
“It’s something brand new that we’ve never seen before [the MCU] before… the scale and imagination of this project is wonderful.”
Executive producer Brian Gay added that it was about time “bring something different into the world:”
“With Michael Giacchino directing and composing, we can go back to the style of the monster movies of the 1930s… it’s time to bring something different into the world. It’s going to be so cool.”
