Disney+ To Stream 'In Color' Version Of Marvel Studios’ Special Presentation: Werewolf By Night


Outsiders

Recommended Posts

Disney+ and Hulu are bringing an "In Color" version of Marvel Studios’ Special Presentation: Werewolf By Night that will premiere on Disney+ on October 20, 2023.

In anticipation of the "In Color" debut on Disney+, the original, black-and-white Werewolf by Night film will premiere on Hulu on September 15th and run until October 31, 2023.

On a dark and somber night, a secret cabal of monster hunters emerge from the shadows and gather at the foreboding Bloodstone Temple following the death of their leader. In a strange and macabre memorial to the leader's life, the attendees are thrust into a mysterious and deadly competition for a powerful relic - a hunt that will ultimately bring them face to face with a dangerous monster.

Dude been saying this. I have been waiting for over a yr?!!? And nothing even rumored is crazy. Oh but we have gotten back to back mediocre Disney plus waves like come on.

At least a Werewolf figure. I'll always take another Man Thing, but that last baf is pretty solid.

And where are the figures?

I would guess to say that we will never see figures because this was a special presentation.  More like a one time shot and not a series so by the time the figures came out, no one would remember the special unless you really wanted the figures.

you say that but we have gotten figures from What If..? That have had only minute screen times. We will get figures from this. Hasbro didn't think the special would this big so they simply needed time to make it. I mean we only gotten Agatha now and the NHW wave 2 this month.

Educate me since I only collect certain Marvel figures.  The figures that were released for What If...?  Were these figures ever released before or released as a very limited type run?  Also, how many What If...? figures were released?

well the second Disney + wave released 6 (Zombie Cap, Captain Carter (and her Stealth Variant), Nebula, Dr. Strange Supreme, Spider-man with the cape, T'Challa StarLord + the BAF Watcher + Hydra Stomper + the Amazon Killmonger. 

The Third had Infinity Ultron BAF

The fourth wave ( the Khonshu wave) had Howard the Duck (and the Zombie verse Ant-man head), Zombie Iron man, Scarlet Witch, Red Skull

The fifth had Gamora, Goliath And Hydra Stomper 2.0 BAF

So 18 (or 18.5 if you count the Ant-man head).

I don't want to hijack the thread and go all day about what figures got made and which didn't but the What If...? is a series that has multi-episodes and is going on season three.  WBN is a special presentation and unless things change.  It will be a one-shot only.  But here is too hoping for the figures people want.

The fact that this one one ofnthe best received, least maligned, inclusions in the MCU and pretty much the most liked in phase 4 should make it a lock to be made. I don't see people loosing interest in a werewolf figure in any event. They definitely didn't have faith in it enough or we would have had a figure with the MK/Hawkeye/SheHulk set. I feel like I'll be watching this every Halloween personally, so chance to right the wrong comes up every year.

Wasn't the point of it being in  Black and White was to give the feel of a classic monster movie from the 30's, so making it in colour defends the purpose

Agreed here, and it was excellent the way it was in Black & White, it was a great movie, I enjoyed it throughly, that alone would make me watch it again in Color, but I don't think it needed to be colorized it does defeat the purpose really.

But like everyone is saying, where are the figures Hasbro? I've been yelling about a new WBN for years, still waiting, and I really need a re-release of Man-Thing. (unless someone still has some parts for sale...I'm soooo close)

Colorizing it also robs the viewer of the Bloodstone being the only thing in color for a really cool effect. And the film changing to color at the end? That's just not a thing now. I especially hope they don't Replace the B and W with color. Keep it an option. I am assuming this is for those people I heard online complaining that they hate black and white and won't even give it a chance. Younger generations that didn't grow up on old horror movies don't get the homage.

Black and White, as a cinematic riff in WBN is as much an artistic decision as something like Raging Bull.    Or the styling of the animated Spider-verse or Scott Pilgrim movies.  There's a reason for it.
Colourizing it is like asking a cover of Stairway to Heaven being played on an accordion.

Marvel interviewed Michael Giacchino, director of Werewolf By Night in Color and he revealed that he's not against releasing the Marvel Studios Special Presentation in 3D and if he was surprised seeing the special in color.

Quote

 

"3D! Yes! Yes, then we'll do the 1950s version of the movie where it was just 3D. Yeah, maybe. I don't know. That would be great. I'd be down."

"I did have one concern, which was obviously in the black and white one, you have a big turn at the end when it goes to color. The intention there was that Elsa created a whole new world. The possibilities are endless. What's she going to do with this new power she has?  That was reflected in bringing color to a place that was for years a dreary part of her life. She was able to finally bring color to it. I was worried, how will that affect the storytelling if the whole thing is in color?  But after watching it, I still felt the same feelings. I still felt the same about everything. It's certainly a different experience than in black and white, but it's just a different experience. It's just, as I said, a new way to experience that story."

 

Check out the full interview.

Actually, after reading the full interview with him, I'm kinda looking forward to it. I think the original is about perfect, but I want to check this out. He at least made it sound like it wasn't just NOT in B&W, but in a stylized color to look like color in the 70s. Like the old Cushing, Christopher Lee stuff. Like most others, I woulda much rather had a new Halloween special with other characters or a continuation of Ted and Jack's adventures, but hey. There is what should be, what we want to be and what actually is. Could be better, but I was gonna watch this again anyway so...

Would you want b&w figures? Maybe the only good thing with colorizing the show is that if we do get figures we get them in color. Hasbro does like its repaints so maybe they could release both?

A number of companies have done the Universal Studios monsters in B&W after doing the color versions, so its not unheard of. IF hasbo ever did monsters, I would expect the color versions first and then maybe B&W if there's a demand.
