The known universe, with its heroes and marvels, but what of the darkness?

Well, this was utterly delightful! Werewolf by Night serves as a wonderful introduction of the supernatural corner of the Marvel Universe to the MCU. Filmed mostly in black and white, this really felt like a loving tribute to the classic Universal Monster movies. I love how the bloodstone gave off a red glow, the only bit of color in this mostly black and white film. I know something similar was done in WandaVision, but I just thought it was cool. It was awesome to see Man-Thing make his MCU debut. All who know fear burn at the Man-Thing's touch, indeed. Gael García Bernal as Jack Russell and Laura Donnelly as Elsa Bloodstone give fine performances. As a fan of Marvel Comics and monster movies, I had a lot of fun watching this. I hope this corner of the MCU will be explored more in the future. Maybe Ghost Rider will show up in the MCU some day!

In our modern world, this is where monsters dwell, alongside those who hunt and slaughter them with pride.
