Werewolf by Night ()
werewolf_by_night_trailer_2022_1min26sDirector: Michael Giacchino, Screen-writer: Heather Quinn
On a dark and sombre night, a secret cabal of monster hunters emerge from the shadows and gather at the Bloodstone Temple following the death of their leader; the attendees are thrust into a mysterious and deadly competition for a powerful relic... and Manny, or Ted as he is refered to, joins the frey in this Halloween special on Disney+


It's more a Thunderbolts Saga Manny than Gerber's, which is an easier approach to fit into the MCU with it's preference for teams/team-ups so I see why they went that way. I enjoyed the show and think it sets up more monster team stories to follow. The CGI was pretty impressive, and the show wasn't lame, so a pretty good result all round.
Several months later and we can see the show generated lots of positive feedback (Certified 91% Fresh at Rotten Tomatoes, 69% on Metacritic) with Ted a breakout hit with viewers and the subject of a slew of click-bait articles on just who or what is a Man-Thing but as yet that interest hasn't translated into any fixed plans or much in the way of mercandise; The Marvel marketing folks might have missed the boat...

Director by Night ()
director_by_night Director: Anthony Giacchino.
Marvel/Disney followed Werewolf by Night with a doco about the director and the making of the show. This tells the story of two Academy Award Winning brothers and their different ways of telling stories. Michael Giacchino, renowned film composer, makes his directing debut with Werewolf By Night. His brother, veteran documentary filmmaker Anthony Giacchino, chronicles the experience, and explores the duo's filmmaking origins in the small New Jersey town where they grew up.


This was much more quirky than most marvel corporate behind the scenes shows, and includes some good scenes of how Ted was presented during filming.
