Marvel Studios’ Werewolf by Night special presentation is in Black and White, and inspired by 1930s and 1940s horror films, for a darker Marvel universe.
This special is being directed by Michael Giacchino who composed the soundtracks for blockbuster movies such as Mission Impossible III, Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, Spider-Man: Homecoming & Far From Home.
On a dark and somber night, a secret cabal of monster hunters emerge from the shadows and gather at the foreboding Bloodstone Temple following the death of their leader. In a strange and macabre memorial to the leader’s life, the attendees are thrust into a mysterious and deadly competition for a powerful relic—a hunt that will ultimately bring them face to face with a dangerous monster.
