WEREWOLF BY NIGHT: How The Special Presentation Sets The Stage For The MCU's Monstrous Future - SPOILERS

We're taking a closer look at what happens in Werewolf by Night, explaining how the Marvel Studios Presentation sets the stage for a new era of MCU storytelling as monsters finally enter the fray...

Werewolf by Night arrived on Disney+ earlier today, and the Marvel Studios Special Presentation perfectly sets the stage for monsters to finally enter the MCU. 

Jack Russell attends a gathering of monster hunters who have come together to lay claim to Ulysses Bloodstone's family relic as it grants the wielder the power of long-lasting life and the chance to rule this cabal. To win that, the hunters must track down a creature within a maze and kill it, taking the Bloodstone from the enraged beast. 

Elsa Bloodstone is among those looking to lay claim to that powerful artefact, though she clearly doesn't have the same twisted outlook as her late father's widow or those around her. As for Jack, he's no monster hunter and is secretly there to help that beast - Man-Thing - escape as he and "Ted" are old friends who have been travelling together for some time now. 

Jack and Elsa eventually agree to team up, and a lot of gory kills follow.

Unfortunately, Jack's true nature as a werewolf is revealed and he and Elsa are imprisoned together with Verusa using the Bloodstone to force him to transform. He smells Elsa beforehand in the hope of remembering her when he becomes an uncontrollable beast, and makes short work of that cage, breaking out and murdering the hunters and Verusa's goons. 

Jack's plan worked and he leaves Elsa alone, fleeing into the night. Verusa, meanwhile, takes aim at Elsa, only for Man-Thing to appear and melt her into nothing. Elsa points him in the direction of where Werewolf by Night fled and she sits down, taking her place as the rightful wielder of the Bloodstone, with the colour returning to the screen and placing this quirky story firmly in the MCU.

Later, we see Jack wake up in a shelter made for him by Man-Thing. The two discuss who saved who, and agree to get sushi.

There is no post-credits scene, but monsters now exist in the MCU and it feels like big changes are coming for this shared world. Elsa Bloodstone is likely going to become a major player as the rightful wielder of the Bloodstone, while Werewolf by Night and Man-Thing's bond might just be leading to them forming their own Legion of Monsters!
