Werewolf by Night Trailer Nails a Classic Monster Movie Vibe

The trailer for Marvel Studios’ first special presentation opens with a warning: “This Halloween you can’t escape the shock, the terror of Werewolf By Night.” The teaser premiered during the D23 Expo 2022 and provided the first good luck at Gael Garcia Bernal (Station Eleven) as the titular character, revealed in glorious black and white.

Laura Donnelly (Outlander, The Nevers) co-stars as Elsa Bloodstone who, in the closing seconds of the trailer, appears to be about to become a meal for a very hungry werewolf. Oscar-winning composer Michael Giacchino (Up) takes the director’s seat for his first major project after helming two shorts.

Werewolf By Night will premiere on Disney+ on October 7, 2022. In addition to announcing the premiere date and dropping the trailer, Marvel Studios released a still, a poster, and a photo from the D23 panel.
