GetFandom's Eric Goldman said the show's dark aesthetic and monochromatic tone. ”I love #WerewolfByNight! The throwback black and white classic horror approach works perfectly for the story and feels unique within the MCU. It’s an exciting example of how they can push boundaries.

Phase 4 of the MCU's Werewolf by Night will begin streaming on Disney+ Hotstar in India on October 7.
