Werewolf by Night Director Shoots Down Moon Knight Rumors

At the D23 Expo, Marvel unveiled the first footage for its new special, Werewolf by Night. When the series was first announced, many fans speculated that Moon Knight could make an appearance due to the character’s debut in the same comic series. While speaking with ET CanadaWerewolf by Night director, Michael Giacchino, provided clarification on the crossover potential, saying, “Moon Knight first appeared in Werewolf by Night in the comics years ago. That’s what everyone is thinking. Yeah, there’s no immediate plans for anything like that.”

However, fans will notice that Giacchino didn’t dismiss the crossover entirely. Instead, he only shot down the idea for the near future. Gael García Bernal, who plays Jack Russell and the titular werewolf, stuttered during his answer when asked the same question. Bernal laughed and said, “I have no idea.”
