The MCU gets MC-spooky this week with a Halloween special on Disney Plus. Werewolf by Night is something different for the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and it's streaming this Friday, Oct. 7.

Unusually, this one-off story is a one-hour "special presentation," plus it's in black and white as an homage to classic horror movies. 

You'll be able to watch Werewolf by Night on streaming service Disney Plus on Friday from 3 a.m. ET / 12 a.m. PT. / 8 a.m. BST.

A teaser was revealed during Disney live event D23 Expo 2022, when the previously untitled special was confirmed to be based on Marvel's Werewolf by Night comics. Here's the trailer:

The special stars Gael García Bernal and Laura Donnelly (star of The Nevers and Outlander). It's directed by Michael Giacchino, best known as the composer of various Mission: Impossible, Jurassic World, Star Trek and Pixar movie soundtracks. He also scored The Batman, Lightyear and several Marvel flicks including the recent Thor: Love and Thunder.

The Halloween special is the next Marvel live action adventure to hit Disney Plus, while current MCU series She-Hulk heads for its finale on Oct. 13. Black Panther: Wakanda Forever hits theaters in November, and after that it's back to Disney Plus for another one-off, the Guardians of the Galaxy Holiday Special in December.
