Werewolf By Night Breaking Records For Marvel Even Before Its Release

Werewolf By Night has managed to already bag a 100% score on Rotten Tomatoes which makes it the MCU’s highest-rated project yet. This slot was previously held by Black Panther with a rating of 96%. The film has not only broken a record for Marvel, but it has also made its spot with the rare few projects that received this rating.

Fans who had been ecstatic about the movie were further overjoyed after Rotten Tomatoes revealed the rating for the film.

“A love letter to classic monster horror films with a little bit of Marvel sprinkled in — and it is fantastic. Marvel took a big risk adding something so unique into the middle of Phase 4, but it really pays off.”

Critics went out of their way to praise the classic horror telling of the movie and how the fact of it being a Marvel movie makes it even better. So far Marvel has tried a lot of different things with their Disney+ projects, all having ranging reviews, some more positive while others are negative. Wandavision has been Marvel’s first risk with something new and the way the audience responded was enough for the MCU to not stop trying.

Werewolf By Night will start streaming on Disney+ from 7th October 2022.
