"Last year, Marvel Studios introduced a terrifying new world of monsters. In one week, Marvel is unleashing Werewolf By Night... In color."

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 successful and popular small-screen MCU projects yet.

We recently learned that a full-color version is set to debut on the streaming service next month, and a new trailer and poster are now online. The teaser spotlights some footage that wasn't used in the promotion for the original version, including a better look at Man-Thing, and quick glimpses of some of the Special's more gruesome moments.

Director Michael Giacchino recently sent out a Tweet explaining the studio's decision to re-release his project.

"We spent a lot of time working on this color version. We wanted to pay homage to the incredible vibrant color in horror films like the ones Hammer made. A whole new look for Werewolf by Night."

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.

Do you plan on re-watching Werewolf by Night in color? Check out the trailer and poster 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.

With all those The Marvels promo and then this, we are on the MCU recycle era.

What's next, First Avenger in black and white?
EskimoJ - 10/14/2023, 1:03 PM
@vectorsigma - Folks keep complaining about the new, so here's an altered version of the old.
Slotherin - 10/14/2023, 3:09 PM
@vectorsigma - lol, DCEU beat them to one thing there
ReverseFlasher - 10/14/2023, 12:12 PM
Im excited to watch this again, the addition of color looks nice in the maze especially.
bobevanz - 10/14/2023, 12:13 PM
You can tell it was framed and shot for black and white, they're just adding color for shits and gigs. I remember when Ted Turner wanted to colorize all of the old classics because he thought color looked better.. this is the same thing

werewolf was only good thing I enjoyed from phrase 4
marvel72 - 10/14/2023, 12:26 PM
Seeing the Man-Thing in colour is all good in my book.
MosquitoFarmer - 10/14/2023, 12:32 PM
I think it looks pretty good.
AnthonyVonGeek - 10/14/2023, 12:34 PM
No thank you. What made it unique to me was it being in black and white. Now there’s nothing special about it. 🤷‍♂️
SanFranLand - 10/14/2023, 12:40 PM
Yes yes yes! Gimme more. I’ve watched the black and white like 7+ times and love it. I bought the Mondo vinyl soundtrack (in bloodstone colored vinyl) and it looks and sounds gorgeous. One of the few memorable Marvel soundtracks out of all of them and maybe the actual best. Hope they release this digitally like they’ve been talking about with certain titles and pump it up with special features including both versions.
EgoEgor - 10/14/2023, 12:47 PM
So they took the very tonal essence of the film, the hook, and stripped it from the film entirely. It's just another "content generation" idea at D+.
ModHaterSLADE - 10/14/2023, 12:54 PM
Now this is the kind of Disney Plus special I can agree with.
SonOfAGif - 10/14/2023, 12:58 PM
Spider-Man Far From Home, Spider-Man No Way Home, Loki, Wandavision, Shang Chi, Werewolf by Night, Wakanda Forever, Multiverse of Madness, Guardians Vol 3, and Guardians Christmas Special have all been solid Post Endgame stories. The rest....not so much.
Razorface1 - 10/14/2023, 2:20 PM
@SonOfAGif - like half of what you said is terrible movies/shows.
dragon316 - 10/14/2023, 10:40 PM
@SonOfAGif - wandavision and loki was two things didn’t like
AllsGood - 10/14/2023, 1:29 PM
The Man-Thing made this show great. I will check it out tonight in color.

MrDandy - 10/14/2023, 1:51 PM
This special was shot for black and white. It’s going to look ugly in comparison in color….

Pointless and just for an audience that refuses to watch black and white movies.
Waifuslayer - 10/14/2023, 2:04 PM
Sweet, a newer version I can also skip! 👍
Spidey91 - 10/14/2023, 2:09 PM
I'm surprised they kept the gore intact, I thought they could get away with it because it was in black and white, in color it feels borderline R-rated.
TheSuperMex - 10/14/2023, 2:38 PM
Should have done a part 2.
StSteven - 10/14/2023, 2:52 PM
It's hard to say for sure because the trailer goes by so quickly, but it looks like even though they colorized it, they did it in a way that looks like the old black and white movies that were later colorized, a la Ted Turner. Meaning that it looks like a 70s movie in the color and quality and not something filmed today which I think looks really cool and adds something to this that wasn't there before (I mean the aesthetic in addition to the color). I haven't rewatched it since last year, but as I recall the b&w version looked crisp and clean and like it was filmed today and this version looks like they aged it when they added the colorization.

It is glorious
kg8817 - 10/14/2023, 3:15 PM
“Last year, Marvel Studios introduced a terrifying new world of monsters.”

And since then, has done absolutely NOTHING with it - but made sure to give us AnT-Man 3 and Captain Marvel 2 instead of going a fresh, exciting route.

Monsters could’ve made the “superhero fatigue” feel fresh by going a supernatural route instead of the damn multiverse. Ghost Rider, Blade and this should’ve led Phase 4 and the bloodstone should’ve been the Tesseract of this saga, leading to something greater - maybe even mutants?

But nah. Guess I’m crazy.
Fanmar16 - 10/14/2023, 5:13 PM
meh, also, i'm starting this, the best superhero / powers series on D+

MochaKing - 10/15/2023, 12:01 AM

Fanmar16 - 10/15/2023, 12:11 AM
@MochaKing - Moving
Spike101 - 10/14/2023, 9:25 PM
Probably the best thing they have done since Infinity War, be it black & white or now in colour.
dragon316 - 10/14/2023, 10:36 PM
Elsa bloodstone no red hair what but that’s must no comic accurate same thing with Superman trunks
NinnesMBC - 10/15/2023, 1:15 AM
Looking forward to it. And I need Elsa, Jack and Ted to retur for the main Kang films.
ClintThaHamster - 10/15/2023, 10:17 AM
My god, the number of adult men in this comments section who are simply DEVASTATED that a TV show that was shot in color is being shown in color, in addition to still being available in black and white.
