However, the Old star's role in the upcoming Disney+ series is still being kept in the dark. Luckily, a new report reveals some interesting new details about the upcoming Marvel Cinematic Universe show including Bernal's role as well as an awesome new character!
Gael Garcia Bernal is the only actor confirmed for Werewolf by Night and there have been speculations that he will be playing Jack Russell. However, there are also rumors that there will be more than just one version of the character who will appear in the MCU series. Now, a new report shares more details about the highly anticipated Halloween special.
According to The Illuminerdi, the new series is set to focus on the original Werewolf by Night Jack Russell and that Gael Garcia Bernal will be playing the Marvel comic book character. This is an interesting update considering that a previous report had confirmed that the special will focus on Jake Gomez aka Red Wolf who eventually takes the mantle.
