Laura Donnelly Cast In Marvel’s Halloween Special For Disney+

Back in November, Gael Garcia Bernal signed on to headline Marvel’s upcoming Halloween special on Disney+. Now,  Bernal finally has a co-star. Deadline is reporting that Laura Donnelly will also star in the Halloween special.

Bernal is rumored to be playing Jack Russell, the leading character of Marvel’s Werewolf by Night. Because of that, Deadline is speculating that Donnelly will portray Jack’s niece, Nina Price, Marvel’s Vampire by Night. In the comics, Nina already had the werewolf’s curse in her body when she was bitten by a vampire. Consequently, she became a vampire/werewolf hybrid.

Donnelly is best known for her leading role as Amalia True in The Nevers on HBO. Her previous credits also include OutlanderBritannia and The Fall, Tolkien, and The Program.

Marvel hasn’t formally announced the new Halloween special, but it will reportedly begin filming early this year. It’s also a part of Marvel’s growing plans for the supernatural side of the MCU. Eternals‘ post-credits scene teased Mahershala Ali’s Blade alongside Kit Harington’s Black Knight. Marvel’s new Blade movie will also shoot later this year.
