Werewolf By Night, Marvel Studios' first ever Special Presentation (followed by James Gunn's Guardians of the Galaxy Christmas Special), premiered on Disney+ last October, and is still widely viewed as one of the most popular small-screen MCU projects yet.

We've heard this numerous times over the years, but the black-and-white, horror-tinged Halloween Special really was a first for the Marvel Cinematic Universe, paying homage to the classic Universal monster movies with its noirish style, creepy atmosphere and heightened levels of violence.

Rumors have swirled that there may be plans in place for ol' Jack Russell and his pals to return, but we haven't had any announcement yet. Still, we can't imagine this will be their one and only appearance.

If you're looking for a monstrous fix before the Werewolf, Ted, aka Man-Thing and Elsa Bloodstone (hopefully) make their mark on the wider MCU, Marvel Studios has announced that Werewolf by Night will begin streaming on Disney+ - in full color - on October 20, just in time for the spooky season.

In addition, the original version of the Special Presentation starts streaming on Hulu tomorrow right up until October 31.

Do you plan on giving Werewolf by Night a re-watch in color this Halloween? Drop us a comment down below.

"On a dark and sombre night, a secret cabal of monster hunters emerge from the shadows and gather at the Bloodstone Temple following the death of their leader; the attendees are thrust into a mysterious and deadly competition for a powerful relic."

Werewolf by Night stars Gael García Bernal as Jack Russell / the Werewolf; A monster hunter who has been afflicted with a curse; Laura Donnelly as Elsa Bloodstone, Ulysses Bloodstone's estranged daughter who dislikes her family's tradition of hunting monsters; Harriet Sansom Harris as Verussa Bloodstone, Ulysses's widow and Elsa's stepmother who leads the secret group of monster hunters.

Also appearing as the additional monster hunters are Kirk R. Thatcher as Jovan, Eugenie Bondurant as Azarel, Leonardo Nam as Liorn, and Daniel J. Watts as Barasso. Al Hamacher appears as Billy Swan, the Bloodstones' servant; and Carey Jones provides the motion-capture of Ted / Man-Thing.

Cool I guess but it still was an underwhelming project like most Disney+ things.

@TheLobster -

It was pretty damn great💁

What didn't you like?

@AmazingFILMporg - @AmazingFILMporg - thinking the same thing. I've literally watched this 25 or so times. Anytime I do a short flight <2hrs, I plug this in. Easily top 10 for me in the MCU.

@TheLobster - It was real and spectacular. Among the more perfect realizations of Marvel characters as has been made. They had the stones to do ManThing.

That was only good thing that came from from phrase 4....or 5.

Lol Disney really scraping the barrel cos they aren’t willing to pay their actors and writers fairly. 90% of the effect will be lost in the lack of black and white, despite how egregious digital black and white is anyway
Origame - 9/14/2023, 5:26 PM
@Cap1 - $3,750 a week for actors and $9,000 a week for writers as the minimum isn't fair?

@Origame - Hey now there! Don't start making sense and state actual facts! You need to be PC and join the mob!

Stick with this shit Giacchino, you're better here, this special was actually good.
slickrickdesigns - 9/14/2023, 2:12 PM
I really enjoyed this one, would’ve liked it to be longer but all together a good PG old school action horror film. Not sure I want to even see it in color as the black and white effect with overtones of red and orange were what made it visually cooler than a regular PG horror flick.
ReverseFlasher - 9/14/2023, 3:08 PM
@slickrickdesigns - yeah a full length higher budget movie version would have been amazing.
DrReedRichards - 9/14/2023, 2:12 PM
But why? The monochrome was an organic part of the story and tone, not just some artsy pretentious detail.

Still gonna check it out though, ngl...

Guess they lack some content, so...

For real. Did you check Dan Murrell's analysis of this Summer season for Disney? Shit's unprecedented...

Here's a crazy idea, pay your workers and make a new one
ModHaterSLADE - 9/14/2023, 2:25 PM
Cool. Now if only we can get a Man-Thing focused special.

Was really hoping we’d get more of these one off Halloween specials. There are a lot more monsters in the marvel universe they could have done this with.

I liked the black and white but I’d check it out in color.
ShellHead - 9/14/2023, 2:33 PM
Very cool. I hope when he shows up again they put more VFX into the wolfman effect though, just a small note
bkmeijer1 - 9/14/2023, 2:36 PM
I'm guessing this has been in the works for a while and is the source that one rumour about a Man-Thing special can be traced back to.

Anyway, I'll definitely give it a watch. One of the cooler Phase 4 projects.
