Surprisingly, Thor Movies Have Introduced Werewolves and Vampires In MCU

The Thor movies haven’t been able to claim the title of the most popular solo franchise in the MCU. This is a set of films that has been like a roller coaster ride with a lot of ups and downs. But one thing consistent in all Thor movies is the world-building they’ve done for the larger MCU. They deserve as much credit as the Guardians movies get to open up MCU’s cosmos. But at the same time, the Thor movies have also laid the groundwork for many earthly elements. And did you know that the last two Thor movies were the ones to introduce us to Werewolves and Vampires in MCU?

Blade is coming out next year, but the setup for Vampires in MCU happened with Thor: Ragnarok. Korg mentioned Vampires, and these blood-suckers were revealed to be a universal thing. And then Vampires were again referenced in Loki, and Blade finally showed up to make a voice cameo in Eternals. But Thor 3 was the first film to bring up their existence.


Werewolves and Vampires In MCU

Now, Thor 4 has done the same for Werewolves. We are supposed to get a Werewolf By Night Halloween Special on Disney+ featuring Gael Garcia Bernal as the titular character. But before he comes in as Jack Russell and turns into a Werewolf, Thor: Love and Thunder has also introduced us to the term Werewolf. Werewolves are also universal in the MCU.


Love and Thunder included several kids from New Asgard in its narrative. One of the kids from the nation described himself as a “Lycan,” which is short for “Lycanthrope” or a Werewolf. A Lycan is a person with the ability to shapeshift into a wolf or therianthropic hybrid wolf-like creature. So with this kid played by actor Kaan Guldur in Thor: Love and Thunder, we’ve got our first werewolf in the MCU.


And as a consolation, even Chris Hemsworth’s wife, Elsa Pataky, played an alien wolf woman Thor made out with at a certain point in his life. She wasn’t technically a werewolf, but I thought I should bring her up while speaking of werewolves. It’s crazy that Thor movies have given so much build-up for the MCU, yet they don’t get the kind of credit they deserve.
