Kevin Feige Teases the MCU’s Monster-Heavy Future

Before Tatiana Maslany’s She-Hulk finishes up its first season, the world will also be getting a Halloween special in the form of Werewolf by Night. Directed by Michael Giacchino and starring both Laura Donnelly and Gael García Bernal, the hour-long project will greet audiences to the supernatural part of the MCU.

Werewolf is far more than just a one-off special, however.

In a previous interview with The Direct, Werewolf by Night executive producer Brian Gay revealed how the special was “just peeling back the corner of monsters in the MCU.” Not only that, but he confirmed some of the monsters seen in the project would certainly “pop up again” down the line.

That’s an exciting prospect, to say the least. The Marvel Cinematic Universe is expansive, so getting introduced to a whole new corner of it is always exciting.

Now, Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige has shared some of his thoughts on what Werewolf has in store, and it seems that.

The MCU’s Monster-Filled Future

In an interview with IGN, the cast and crew of Werewolf by Night have spoken about how exciting the project is and how it’ll add to the MCU.

Monsters Are the MCU’s Future

Those behind Werewolf by Night are really doubling down on the idea that this small Disney+ project is introducing a major new world to audiences—one which’ll be important going forward. But what other projects clearly connect to something like it?

Well, there’s Blade, for one. Even though there are no Vampires, its leading character does have some experience with the supernatural side of things. However, given all the shakeups occurring with the project, it’s unknown what may happen during its runtime.

Marvel could possibly make an annual habit out of releasing a Halloween-themed special, so fans can get their yearly dose of monsters in the MCU. Perhaps if Avengers: Secret Wars takes after Jonathan Hickman’s 2015 story, which took place in a mix-match world of various different realities, there could be a whole monster-themed world for the Avengers to contend with.

It looks like fans will just have to wait and see how everything shapes out.

Werewolf by Night hits Disney+ on Friday, October 7.
