Elsewhere on the Hairy Beast Front, Marvel’s Disney+ Halloween Special night werewolf is filming, with Gael García Bernal (Old) and Laura Donnelly (Nevers) headlining the cast.

Donnelly is said to bring the role of Nina Price aka Vampire by Night to life.

As Nina is Jack Russell’s niece, this led to speculation that Bernal should play Jack Russell himself, a Marvel Comics character from 1972 who happens to be a descendant of the original werewolf Grigori Russoff.

Jack inherits the curse at the age of 18, but instead of exclusively scratching people’s faces, Jack uses his powers for good by teaming up with Moon Knight and Frankenstein against HYDRA and the Satanic Brotherhood.
