Developing Since The Beginning Of MCU.
Now the interesting fact is Marvel Studios is developing Werewolf by Night since the first Iron Man and Marvel Studios have actually actively started developing characters like Werewolf by Night, Shang Chi, Iron Fist, and Quasar before they ever regained the rights to Iron Man, And as what the MCU is today, at that point even Black Widow wasn’t something that was part of the entire Marvel Studios branch because the character was elsewhere for a while being developed by Metal Gear Solid fame, David Hayter, and it’s interesting to hear about Werewolf by Night, being planned by Marvel Studios again.
Marvel is Going Dark!
Two years ago,we started to hear about some sort of movement happening with the whole Moon Knight concept and possibly connecting it to the more fantastical and darker side off, something like DCEU version, that they’re slowly building it. So that’s just kind of lines up with everything we know, and it’s perfect opportunity for Moon Knight and Blade, those two characters can 100% introduce that character and the concept. And now that the MCU has their own version of the Darkhold, and the fact that they’re going into these more historically, weird things that we haven’t seen like for example vampires, and Egyptian gods ( Eternals ).
Jack Russell / Werewolf by Night.
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 of himself. As a werewolf, Jack gains the proportionate physical advantages of a nearly 7-foot-tall wolf. In this form, he possesses superhuman strength, speed, stamina, durability, agility and reflexes. He possesses a superhuman sense of smell, which carries over to his human form. He has razor-sharp teeth and claws that are able to rend light metals. The Werewolf is resistant to many forms of conventional injury and very difficult to kill by conventional means. Though he can be severely wounded, he recovers from non-fatal wounds much faster than a human would. He is vulnerable to magical attacks and, like all werewolves, he can be killed by weapons made of silver, due to its inherent mystical “purity”.
