We’ve known for a long time that Marvel was making a Halloween special for Disney Plus, but now we have official confirmation and a brand-new trailer for the special, Werewolf by Night. The special will be based on the adventures of the same-named comic book character, who often shows up in scary stories.
Kevin Feige, the head of Marvel, called the special “fun scary,” and Michael Giacchino, who directed it, said it “has the right amount of scares.” Based on the first trailer, it looks like one of the most different MCU projects we’ve ever seen in terms of style, and we won’t have to wait long to see it.

Werewolf by Night Trailer
Yes! The hunters are being followed by a creature of the night in the trailer, which was unveiled at this year’s D23 Expo. It gives us a taste of the terrifying thrills and spills that will be arriving just in time for Halloween. Examine it below:
Werewolf by Night Plot
Is that Jake or Jack? There are rumors and leaks everywhere on the internet, including on the Reddit community r/MarvelStudiosSpoilers. Even though these were just conjectures, further research reveals that at least some of these alleged elements might be accurate.
Industry periodicals presented details on both Jake Gomez and Jack Russell while taking care not to give anything away. The identity of the werewolf we’ll be getting is finally confirmed with the trailer’s release during D23.
On the basis of the information that is currently available and the trailer’s captions, Gael Garcia Bernal will be playing Jack Russell.
Jack Russell is a member of the mysteriously transformed Lycanthropes subgroup of people. He is forced to change into a werewolf, a large, strong form that combines human and wolf characteristics.
The night of the full moon and the two nights before and after it are when he loses his human mind. When he maintains control of himself under certain conditions, he can also mutate freely outside of the full moon.
Jack has the physical advantages of a wolf that is nearly 7 feet tall in proportion. In this form, he possesses superhuman strength, speed, endurance, durability, agility, and reflexes. He has a remarkable sense of smell, both in his human and superhuman forms.
This does not preclude Jake from getting his own movie down the road or from showing up in this one. The character’s second incarnation, Jake Gomez, was first introduced by Marvel in Werewolf by Night (Vol. 3) #1 the year before.
Gomez, a Native American from the Hopi tribe whose family has been cursed with lycanthropy, battles a dishonest pharmaceutical company that exploits tribe members. Scot Eaton, Taboo, and Benjamin Jackendoff created the most recent comic book.
The teaser offers a fantastic preview of what to expect. Those who enjoy horror movies in black and white, such as Creature from the Black Lagoon, are in for a treat. With recognizable sound effects and cut scenes evoking horror movies from the first half of the 20th century, the trailer is entirely black and white.
