For one brilliant second, Michael Giacchino really put his musical composition hat aside and said, “I’ll try spooky,” directing Werewolf by Night.

Marvel fans — meet Ted.
The MCU has at last welcomed Ted. Actually, no. He prefers that name to the horrifying label others have given him, Man-Thing.
The origin story of the character in Marvel comics is actually tragic. Man-Thing, who once held the title of Dr., prefers to go by Ted. Sallis, Ted.

Sadly for Ted, he was unaware that the sample he gave himself would transform him into the enormous green monster that people called Man-Thing. Maybe Ted should make a call to She-Hulk for assistance?
