The hour-long special–directed by Michael Giacchino from a screenplay by Peter Cameron and Heather Quinn–stars Gael Garcia Bernal as Jack Russell (the guy with the shaggy alter-ego), Laura Donnelly as Elsa Bloodstone and Harriet Sansom Harris as Verusa–along with such macabre guest stars as Ulysses Bloodstone and the shambling Man-Thing.
The show follows a secret cabal of monster hunters who gather at Bloodstone Castle following the death of their leader, and are thrust into a “mysterious and deadly competition for a powerful relic–a hunt that will bring them face-to-face with a dangerous monster,” according to the synopsis.
Executive producer Brian Gay said this special will “peel back the corner of monsters in the Marvel Cinematic Universe” and show that “for centuries, there have been monsters within the MCU, and they’ve been tracked or hunted–or kept at bay–by these hunters.”
