While still not officially confirmed by Marvel Studios, the long-rumored Werewolf by Night Disney+ special has started production in Georgia. The official website has revealed that a Disney+ project with the working title “Buzzcut” was currently in production, which was revealed back in August to belong to the Disney+ Halloween Special. Technically, it still has no title only that Michael Giacchino will direct the special with Gael Garcia Bernal in the title role.
The production start matches that was first reported last month, as it was originally going to start mid-March before getting pushed back by a few weeks. Looks like they still managed to keep it within the timing window to ensure it’ll be able to release by Halloween of this year. It’ll be the second Special for the MCU, as they also have a Christmas Special on the horizon for Guardians of the Galaxy.
It’ll be interesting to see how they tackle a special, especially if it introduces a completely new character into the MCU. They seem to be building up a Midnight Suns team with each new darker addition. Here’s hoping we get an official name soon, as the project is already entering production and we have no idea what it’s going to be called or even an official word from Marvel Studios.
