Watch: Marvel reveals first ‘Werewolf by Night’ trailer at D23


At long last, Marvel Studios has confirmed everything we already knew about upcoming Halloween special Werewolf by Night at the D23 Expo, but Kevin Feige has at least bestowed us with the gift of a teaser trailer that looks awesome.

As expected, the Disney Plus one-off is going by the working title we’ve been hearing about for months, with Gael Garcia Bernal and Laura Donnelly confirmed as the leads. Not only that, but Academy Award-winning composer Michael Giacchino is directing the project, so it’s really just a confirmation of various things we already knew.

The official poster has also been unveiled, and you can check out the spooky one-sheet in all of its glory below.

However, the footage is undeniably impressive, and looks to offer something completely different to what we’ve become accustomed to seeing from the MCU. Of course, that’s been the remit of Phase Four in a nutshell, and with magic and mysticism becoming ever more prevalent in the mythology, it was only a matter of time before the supernatural reared its head.

Fans will also be getting hyped that the black-and-white spectacular will also see Man-Thing become an official part of MCU canon, something a lot of people have been desperate to see happen for the longest time. Werewolf by Night drops on October 7, so be prepared to indulge in the all-conquering superhero saga’s first foray into what appears to be genuinely old school scares that looks heavily indebted to the classic monster movies of old.
