Werewolf by Night’s Michael Giacchino Shares First Clip of the Marvel Disney+ Special Soundtrack

Michael Giacchino, the famous film composer who is doing double duty as the director of Marvel’s new Werewolf at night special starring Gael García Bernal, took to social media late last night to give fans a preview of the score, lighting up the tone and feel of the black and white Halloween special ahead of release, and some of the those who don’t own Disney+ or haven’t tuned in yet, a chance to get a sense of what the special is all about. The special, which also features the character Man-Thing, gives a glimpse into the supernatural, monstrous side of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

In that respect the music is dark and gothic in a way that is more reminiscent of Giacchino’s score for the batter then his Disney work on light year and Upwards. The addition of a chorus/vocal number is something unexpected, it breaks with the Marvel music formula and feels very much like a classic black and white horror movie.

You hear it below.

“I had a blast. It’s an incredibly challenging process. I love it,” Giacchino previously told ComicBook.com in an exclusive interview. “I’ve enjoyed working on it every day and we’re in the middle of it. Hopefully we’ll share a lot more about it soon. Yes. There’s not much I can’t say except I’m having a good time and I’m working on it something I love, so it’s a win-win situation.”

An Academy Award winner, Giacchino is best known as a composer, providing the score for numerous fan-favorite films, including The Incredibles, Ratatouille, Cloverfieldand Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol. He has also contributed the score to multiple Marvel Studios projects, including: Doctor Strange, Spider-Man: Homecoming, Spider-Man: No Way Home, and Thor: Love and Thunder. Giacchino’s previous directing experience includes an episode of Star Trek: Short Tours and a short film entitled, appropriately, Monster Challenge.

The Werewolf by Night special marks a brand new chapter for the Marvel Cinematic Universe. In the past, the MCU consisted only of feature films, but has since moved on to live-action TV series and even animated shows. With the addition of Werewolf at night, however, the MCU is starting the special holiday game. Together with Guardians of the Universe doing the same at Christmas, looks like they are excited about the idea so hope we get some more Werewolf content in future haunted seasons.
