Does ‘Werewolf by Night’ Have a Post-Credits Scene?

Marvel Studios

“Werewolf by Night” is here.

The latest entry in the Marvel Cinematic Universe is a midsized movie, running at just 53 minutes (it’s billed as a “Marvel Studios Special Presentation”), that explores the title character, who goes by the human name Jack Russell (Gael García Bernal). Jack is a monster hunter who, along with fellow hunters, is summoned to a mysterious mansion and tasked with bagging the most fearsome creature imaginable. Can he bring in the beast while also successfully concealing his true identity?

That last question looms over “Werewolf by Night.” But there is a bigger question still: does “Werewolf by Night” have a post-credits sequence?

No spoilers, but we will reveal whether or not “Werewolf by Night” has a post-credits scene, so if you don’t want to know, turn back now!

Wait, what is “Werewolf by Night” again?

See above. It’s basically a Marvel Studios Halloween special, directed by the insidiously talented Michael Giacchino, who has contributed the musical scores to some of the MCU’s biggest films (“Doctor Strange,” all three Tom Holland “Spider-Man” movies, “Thor: Love and Thunder”). Presented in black-and-white, with theatrical flourishes like “cigarette burns,” “Werewolf by Night” is meant to mimic the look and feel of classic Universal monster movies from the 1940’s. It’s a total blast. And it opens up the more monstrous corner of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, which will soon be further explored in the theatrical “Blade” film and the upcoming Disney+ series “Agatha: Coven of Chaos.” Spooky!

And why would it have a post-credits scene?

Because this is Marvel Studios we’re talking about. Since their very first feature, 2008’s “Iron Man,” a surprise post-credits (or sometimes mid-credits) scene has become a hallmark for their theatrical features and some of the television series (most notably “She-Hulk: Attorney at Law”). With the studio’s history (and with the aforementioned future horror-adjacent Marvel projects), you’d be safe to assume that it would have a post-credits sequence too.

So, does it have a post-credits sequence?

Nope!

Really?

Yes, really. There’s a typically grandiose main-on-end title sequence, accompanied by Giacchino’s wonderful “Werewolf by Night” theme, but after that, we are treated to the cold reality of the “filmed in Georgia” logo. No mid-credits sequence, got it. But maybe a post-credits sequence? Nope, not that either.

Wasn’t there rumors that “Werewolf by Night” would properly introduce Blade (Mahershala Ali) to the MCU?

Yes, there were rumors! Sadly, they remained rumors. There is no Blade here. (You could hear Blade at the end of “Eternals,” at least.) As much as we’d like to have seen the character, he is a no-show.

Boo!

Not only is this response appropriate for “Werewolf by Night” and its lack of a post-credits scene, but it also makes sense for the season. Happy Halloween!

“Werewolf by Night” is on Disney+ now.
