Hulu chose not to push ahead with Howard the Duck, but rather Smith reveals that he planned to present the religion favorite saint, Werewolf by Night, into the series.
According to Comicbook.com, via The Fatman Beyond podcast that Kevin Smith co-has alongside Marc Bernardin, Smith reveals that Marvel Studios film division has plans for Werewolf by Night. He talked about how when he was creating his Howard the Duck series, he wanted to incorporate a lot of characters Marvel presented during the 1970s and one of them was Werewolf by Night. Jeph Loeb, who was then Executive Vice President of Marvel TV, revealed to Smith that Werewolf by Night was forbidden because of plans from the film division. Read what Smith said beneath:
For a super hot moment, I was dealing with Howard the Duck and before Dave [Willis, Aqua Teen Hunger Force co-creator] included, when it was simply me, Jeph Loeb resembled ‘Hello man, I think you’d be useful for Howard the f- – lord Duck.’ I reached out to Walter Flanagan from Comic Book Men and disclosed to him I’m gonna take a stab at all the f- – ruler 70s characters. Walt was giving ideas and Werewolf By Night was absolutely on the rundown. In my head, as I started fabricating my season, I resembled, ‘Alright. Scene 5. Werewolf by Night.’ The idea of our story was that Howard was trapped here and he was attempting to get pages of the Darkhold, which would allow him to return. There’s Howard as I’m laying it out and then, at that point I go into Jeph and mentioned to him what I wanted to do, and that’s the point at which they said ‘You can’t utilize Werewolf by Night,’ and I asked why. They said the film division was utilizing him.
Where and what plans Marvel Studios has for Werewolf By Night remain to be seen, yet there are a lot of potential tasks he could appear in. With Wanda Maximoff possessing the Darkhold at the finish of WandaVision, and the scourge of the werewolf in the Marvel funnies originated from the book, the character could appear in Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness. The popular nature of vampires versus, werewolves makes Werewolf by Night a great candidate to appear in the impending Blade movie, which as of late reserved Bassam Tariq to coordinate. Finally, the most probable place could be in the forthcoming Moon Knight series starring Oscar Issac, since the character of Moon Knight originally appeared in Werewolf by Night #32 in 1975. With the ascent of supernatural characters like Scarlet Witch, Blade, and presently conceivably Werewolf by Night, Marvel Studios could be building a team of supernatural characters like The Legion of Monsters or the Midnight Sons.
