The role of Man-Thing in the Marvel Cinematic Universe

Werewolf by Night, the next chapter of the Marvel Cinematic Universe coming to Disney Plus on October 7th, has been presented as the franchise's first true horror story. Inspired by the famous werewolf of the House of Ideas, Jack Russell, the short entrusted to Michael Giacchino will be a central moment for the cinematic context of Marvel's heroes, not limiting itself to introducing Lycantropus, as we have always known in Italy Jack Russell, but by making other famous ones appear characters from the marvelian horror world. In the trailer shown during the D23 Expo, in particular, a frame showed another famous character who is a symbol of this horror corner of the Marvel Universe, a presence that prompted us to ask ourselves where we have already seen Man-Thing in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

What will be the true role of Man-Thing in the Marvel Cinematic Universe?

Character often confused with Swamp Thing from DC Comics, Man-Thing was created by Stan Lee, Roy Thomas and Gerry Conway. Monster living in the swamps of Florida, this being was originally a scientist, the biochemist Theodore Sallis, who during a reckless experiment to produce a serum that protected against biochemical pollution was administered an experimental drug, which induced a mutation to the his organism, thanks to having ended up in a mystical swamp, whose magical forces have helped to transform him into a protector of those environments: Man-Thing. Endowed with incredible strength and an affinity with the ghostly world, Man-Thing, in the Marvel Universe, plays a particular role: guardian of the Nexus of all Realities, a point of the multiverse from which one has total access to the different dimensions.

The first mention of Man-thing in the Marvel Cinematic Universe dates back to the first season of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. , now no longer considered part of the MCU. Following the fall of the agency after the events of Captain America: Civil War, numerous classified documents become public, and as a result we can hear Maria Hill, during a conversation with Pepper Pots, mention the creature known as Man several times. Thing, claiming that he is under control in the Fridge, a special prison for monstrous creatures. Given that the series is no longer believed to be part of the continuity of the franchise, this reference to the swamp monster may not be seen as part of Man-Thing's journey towards its appearance in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

The presence of the swamp creature in Thor: Ragnarok is different, subtle but not escaping the eye, where the face of Man-Thing appears together with that of Beta-Ray Bill and other fighters famous of Sakaar in the tower of the Grand Master. How Man-Thing arrived on the planet is unclear, perhaps by exploiting his ability to move around the multiverse via teleportation, but this appearance remains the first that we can consider as official in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
