Gael Garcia Bernal will be the star of a Halloween special that Marvel and Disney + are preparing, the portal The Wrap reported on Thursday.

The Mexican star will lead the cast of this television special about which very little is known, although The Wrap noted that his story will be inspired by the werewolf from Marvel‘s “Werewolf by Night”.

Filming is expected to begin early next year.

Marvel has found in Disney + the ideal home to expand the fabulous success of its Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) on the big screen.

Thus, the Disney “streaming” platform has launched the series “WandaVision”, “The Falcon and the Winter Soldier”, “Loki” and “What If…?” With a very good reception this year.

For his part, García Bernal is one of the most sought-after and required Latino actors in Hollywood.

This year he presented the supernatural mystery tape “Old” by filmmaker M. Night Shyamalan (“The Sixth Sense”, 1999).

He also lent his voice to the dubbing of the Netflix animated series “Maya and the Three” and in December will appear with a small role in the limited series (miniseries) “Station Eleven” on HBO Max.
