It has been rumored for quite some time that Marvel has plans to introduce Jack Russell, aka Werewolf by Night, in a future MCU project. Well, according to MCU Cosmic, the character is expected to appear in the Disney+ series Moon Knight.
Geeks WorldWide first reported that Werewolf by Night would be making his way to the MCU. Many assumed this would be in the Disney+ series, and this report seems to add fuel to the that theory.
Marc Spector made his comic debut in the Werewolf By Night #32, so it makes sense they would use this connection to introduce the character of Jack Russell. Spector originally served as an antagonist for the lycanthropic hero, meaning his inclusion in the Disney+ series would be a natural one.
Russell was created by Roy Thomas, Gerry Conway, and Mike Ploog. He first appeared in Marvel Spotlight #2 in 1972. The character descends from a line of werewolves that were created by Dracula himself, who cursed the family.
This is the second major character rumored to appear in Moon Knight. Recently, a report claimed that Bushman, the man indirectly responsible for Spector’s transformation, would serve as an antagonist for the titular hero.
