Did I see a "giant-sized" Man-Thing in that trailer?

I am guessing this is supposed to be something the characters in the MCU would have watched for Halloween, i.e. a universe within a universe?

Hard to say, just based on the trailer. I'd say the appearance of Man-Thing suggests no, though, but the only way to know for sure is to watch the movie. There may be another trailer between no the October 8 that'll make things clearer.

Is this Michael Giacchino first time as a director? He composed lots music for films and tv.

This as a surprise screening at Fantastic Fest last night. There are some reviews on RT: https://www.rottentomatoes.com/m/wer...ometer-reviews

I've also seen some mixed Twitter reviews.

He did The Batman's score.

This was fun... pretty bloody and violent (though muted in B&W).

I know GotG is upcoming, but I hope they continue to do holiday specials annually.

This was fucking badass! After one mediocre offering after another they finally got it right. I wish it were feature length. Great directorial debut by Michael Giacchino who also composed the score, which also rocked. It has a very Tales from the Crypt vibe, so much so that I am about fire up the DVDs and watch a couple of episodes of that.

Interesting. WBN is one of my earliest Marvel memories. Maybe even before Spider-Man.

Re: Marvel's Werewolf By Night (Disney+) - premieres 10/7/22

Several issues of Chris Claremont’s 11 issue Man Thing comics from a quarter bin (the cover price was crossed out in pen or marker showing it was a quarter bin comic) were literally some of the first comics I ever purchased when I got into comics around 1981/1982, when I was in the 4th or 5th grade. Of all the comics I have sold over the years I made sure to keep them in my collection.

As you can imagine, I had a huge smile on my face since Man-Thing was such an important character in this special. Just wonderful, and seeing those who show fear burn was quite cool.

Wow, this was a complete surprise. I didn't watch the trailer, so I had no idea it would be a B&W Universal homage thing. Nice sets and look, and was surprisingly violent. Loved Man-Thing. Hope we see more stuff like this in the future.

Notice the cigarette burns. Upper right corner. Right after Ilsa makes off with the Scottish guy's axe.

This stylistically reminds me of the sci-fi parody The Lost Skeleton of Cadavra, if anyone remembers the use of b/w as a throwback to 50s/60s movies.

I believe there was a Supernatural episode in b/w that imitated old Universal horror. I remember Dean in liederhosen at an Oktoberfest.

Really enjoyed this special. It worked perfectly for the season and they made a good decision making it as more or less a short film than something blown up for its own sake. After the viewing I guess this kind of takes place in its own little corner of the MCU. I hope we haven't seen the last of Ted/Man-Thing, he was a fun character. I seem to remember the Man-Thing design being plugged into Marvel comics whenever they needed a random creature to appear, so he really worked in that regard.

I just found out the Scottish guy was the bus punk in Star Trek 4.

This was excellent. Loved the aesthetic, the story, the actors. Short but sweet. I was on edge of seat the entire time.

So, what is this just a one off? Isnít based on a comic book series? Are we gonna get more?
