Just a week or so to go for the much-awaited release of the new MCU TV series, Werewolf by Night on Disney+, and early reviewers and influencers are sharing how they’re blown away by the show already!
With the right mixture of horror and drama, the commendable acting of the cast, and the way the producer has impeccably brought everything together, this new show is proving to be just what keeps its viewers hooked in front of their screens.
Critics are highly impressed by the gripping visuals and flawless production, claiming it to be an amazing series, probably the best collaboration between Marvel and Disney+ yet. And now that these early reactions have surfaced, giving the show a gigantic thumbs-up, the Marvel fandom is going to get even more impatient to dig their claws in this horror fiction this Halloween. Pun intended!
Early reactions sing great praises for Werewolf by Night, an upcoming MCU show
Critics are associating the show with all kinds of positive labels, from “unique” to something “fresh and bold”, thereby acknowledging it rather highly.
The series can easily be referred to as a tribute to classic horror films, mainly because the director has set almost the entirety of the project in monochrome, a type of black and white film that is guaranteed to make the audience nostalgic with memories of old times.
But that is not even the main point of its critical acclamation, for it is the brilliant production and enticing visuals of Werewolf by Night, that has won the hearts of its viewers even before its official release.
While some are expressing their praise towards the skilled mastery of the producer, Michael Giacchino, others are talking about the goriness of the show that is adorning it with a true Halloween vibe.
Take a look at some of these reactions:
I'm glad they pushed #WerewolfByNight to be more horror than originally thought. It's a neat tease of what could be an expansive MCU monster universe.

Werewolf by Night is awesome.
It’s a self-contained, complete story with strong beginning, middle, & end arcs, awesome shots in homage to classic horror films, and interesting characters. It’s violent, fun, scary, immersive, and intriguing throughout. Loved it. pic.twitter.com/qOBUy5tU4s

WEREWOLF BY NIGHT is the confident swing in tone from Marvel on Disney+ that I’ve been waiting for.
Genuinely scary at times and dripping with macabre camp, it doesn’t pull punches in violent delights.
Michael Giacchino pulled off something truly special.
More of this please!

Created and produced by Michael Giacchino, this show is the perfect and powerful combination of gore, violent drama, comic reliefs, and stunning visuals, mainly revolving around the supernatural community of werewolves.
The show is jam-packed with intriguing characters and a captivating storyline, wherein the character of Jack Russell (the superhero werewolf), played by Gael García Bernal, gets together with a pack of supernatural “monster hunters” to complete an enigmatic relic and also to kill an even more mysterious beast. And all this while, Jack Russell is challenged to keep his lycanthrope identity hidden.
The horror fiction is set to hit Disney+ on October 7, 2022.
