A Midnight Sons teaser?

It’s possible that the next Halloween special will be treated as an anthology, meaning there would be an overall title for the project encapsulating all of its material.

Tales of the Midnight Sons could become a fitting title as it could serve as a tease for the group’s superhero debut in the future. This potential title also allows the other members of the Midnight Sons to take center stage, introducing them to fans one by one before eventually crafting a crossover project.

Another potential title could simply be night trackers. In Marvel Comics, the Nightstalkers are a trio of vampire hunters led by Blade, whose primary goal is to combat supernatural threats.

The MCU could pick up on this concept by giving this title to the Halloween special, which could serve as the first iteration of the franchise’s eventual Midnight Sons group. This allows Marvel Studios to introduce the various members of the Midnight Sons in their own unique way.

A previous report also mentioned that Mahershala Ali’s Blade would make an appearance in the Halloween special. This could indicate that the supernatural team will reunite soon, and this project can be used as the main avenue to tease their impending presence.
