We know that there is going to be a Werewolf by Night: Halloween Special coming to Disney+. Now we’ve spotted the following tweet showing a filming schedule tells us that the working title for the project is “Buzzcut”, and it will be filming in Atlanta in February and March, with Gael Garcia Bernal as the star and showing that it’s being produced by Kevin Feige, Louis D’Esposito and Victoria Alonso.

There is also a brief synopsis that reads: “A new Werewolf by Night is prowling the Southwest, but all is not as it seems! A young man, a family curse, and an unholy experiment prove a dangerous combination for a small town in Arizona. All young Jake wants is to protect his people, but who will protect him from the monster within?”
According to this synopsis, it reads like they’re going with the Jake Gomez version of the character that was just introduced in the comics last year, rather than the original classic character Jack Russell. Also, they refer to him as a young man while Bernal is 42, so it is possible that Bernal is not playing Jake. There have been rumors that Marvel was looking at Hamilton and In the Heights star Anthony Ramos for the role prior to Bernal’s casting.
Whichever version they go with, will Disney’s Werewolf tie into the Moon Knight series as the character of Moon Knight debuted in Werewolf by Night?
