Werewolf by Night looks like a fun swerve Even by comic book fan standards, Werewolf by Night is a deep cut. Billed as a “Marvel Studios Special Presentation,” the project is going to be the rare Marvel one-off, focusing on a handful of Marvel’s more supernatural characters. The special, which will be released in black and white, feels like a fun Universal Monster movie. It stars Gael Garcia Bernal as the titular werewolf and Laura Donnelly as monster hunter Elsa Bloodstone.
Black Panther: Wakanda Forever isn’t finished yet but looks impressive nonetheless Ryan Coogler tore himself away from the editing room to present a full scene from Wakanda Forever featuring Queen Ramonda (Angela Bassett) speaking to the UN. As she speaks about how the death of T’Challa has made Wakanda seem weaker, a group of mercenaries tries to steal some vibranium—but quickly meets the business end of the Dora Milaje’s spears. The crew is then paraded into the UN as prisoners as a show of Wakanda’s strength. The clip then led into a new montage of footage, including M’Baku (Winston Duke) tussling with Namor (Tenoch Huerta) before continuing to tease, but not reveal, a new Black Panther.
Coogler then stayed on stage with Ironheart actor Dominique Thorne, who we’ll first meet in Wakanda Forever. A brief teaser showed Throne’s Riri Williams in a suit of armor before declaring, “I want to build something like that, but better.” We also saw the first look at Anthony Ramos’ Parker Robbins, aka The Hood, who uses the magical powers of a crimson cowled cloak to commit crimes. Coogler stated the series would see a battle between magic versus tech when it comes to Disney+ next Fall.
The Marvels is heavy on the hijinks After the Ms. Marvel finale revealed Kamala Khan (Iman Vellani) is the MCU’s first proper mutant, she promptly disappeared out of her Jersey City bedroom and was replaced by Carol Danvers (Brie Larson) without explanation. The Marvels director Nia DaCosta didn’t have much to preview, but she did show a fun clip that sees Kamala, Carol, and Monica Rambeau (Teyonah Parris) constantly switching places as their powers somehow become entangled crescendoing into a mad game of rock-paper-scissors. The film releases on July 28, 2023.
