However, at the end of the day, this is merely a drop when it comes to artistic freedom in this franchise. While the logo gets a spooky filter and some annoying music, is it really enough to signal that the MCU world is open to change? After all, the actual footage shown in the logo is still intact – the heroes and script pages are the same as we see before every Marvel project.
It will be interesting to see how things change just for this particular one, perhaps introducing some of the series’ villains instead of its heroes. Perhaps some scenes should have been swapped out for our heroes in more traumatic situations. Just something, anything to ensure that this special stands as its own thing rather than another reminder that the MCU is the dominant force in pop culture today.
It’s not a bad thing for the franchise to want to experiment with genres at all, and in fact, this particular should be a welcome departure from the limitations it has created for itself. . Unfortunately, those limitations weren’t completely ignored for “Werewolf By Night,” and the opening Marvel Studios logo is the best possible representation of this.
“Werewolf By Night” is currently streaming on Disney+.
