Marvel's She-Hulk, Werewolf by Night, and Guardians Holiday Special Snubbed by Emmys

The Marvel Cinematic Universe continues its successful march forward, with a plethora of new movies and exclusive Disney+ series that contribute to its ever-expanding narrative. While many of these titles have garnered immense praise from fans, it appears that three recent fan favorites did not receive recognition in the 2023 Emmy nominations. Among the eligible MCU Disney+ releases, only Ms. Marvel managed to secure Emmy nominations. It was celebrated in categories such as Outstanding Picture Editing for a Limited or Anthology Series or Movie, Outstanding Music Composition for a Limited or Anthology Series, Movie or Special (Original Dramatic Score), and Outstanding Original Main Title Theme Music.

Consequently, the first season of She-Hulk: Attorney at Law, as well as the Special Presentations Werewolf By Night and the Guardians of the Galaxy Holiday Special, were overlooked and did not receive Emmy nominations in 2023.

Will She-Hulk Get a Season 2?

Speculation about She-Hulk's future in the MCU has raised numerous questions, particularly as Tatiana Maslany, who portrays Jennifer Walters/She-Hulk, has not been officially confirmed to reprise her role, and the show has not yet been granted a second season. During an interview on the Phase Zero podcast, She-Hulk showrunner Jessica Gao revealed that immediate plans for a second season were not being pursued.

"I can empathize with people who have kids because this must be how it feels," Gao expressed. "It's like when someone has their first baby, and everyone starts asking, 'When are you having another one?' And they're like, 'I literally just gave birth. I'm still in the hospital bed. Can I have a moment?' That's how I feel right now."

Will There Be a Werewolf By Night Sequel?

The events depicted in Werewolf By Night and their impact on characters such as Jack Russell/Werewolf By Night (portrayed by Gael Garcia Bernal), Elsa Bloodstone (played by Laura Donnelly), and Man-Thing have yet to be addressed further within the MCU. However, Marvel producer Stephen Broussard has expressed a focus on exploring more horror-oriented narratives.

During an interview earlier this year, Broussard emphasized their intention to introduce compelling characters rooted in the darker, supernatural, and occult realms. He stated, "We are gradually introducing some fascinating characters from the more monstrous and supernatural side of the Marvel universe. These introductions are happening organically, and there are potential avenues to continue exploring their stories in fresh and innovative ways, while maintaining a foothold in the horror genre."

Broussard shared these insights during the press junket for Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania, indicating Marvel's commitment to maintaining a presence in the horror genre and continuing to develop captivating narratives within that realm.
