James R | On 30, Sep 2020
Disney+ has given us a fresh look at Marvel’s 616 with a new trailer and two new clips from the upcoming documentary series.
The series explores how Marvel’s rich legacy of stories, characters and creators exist within the world outside your window. Each documentary, helmed by a unique filmmaker, explores the intersections of storytelling, pop culture, and fandom within the Marvel Universe. Films in this anthology series will cover topics including Marvel’s world-spanning artists, the trailblazing women of Marvel Comics, discovering the “forgotten” characters of Marvel, and much more.
Produced by Marvel New Media with Supper Club, the series is executive produced by Joe Quesada, Shane Rahmani, Stephen Wacker, John Cerilli, Harry Go, and Sarah Amos for Marvel; and Jason Sterman, Brian McGinn, and David Gelb for Supper Club.
As well as the trailer above, Disney+ has shared two exclusive sneak peek clips. The first is from the episode “Higher, Further, Faster” directed by actor/director Gillian Jacobs, which shines a light on the trailblazing women of Marvel Comics and how they found ways to tell stories of representation and inclusion. The second clip is from the Paul Scheer-directed episode Lost and Found, following the actor and comedian’s eye-opening and hilarious journey to discover the “forgotten” characters of Marvel Comics.
The series will premiere on Disney+ on 20th November.
First look: Disney+ docuseries Marvel’s 616
Disney+ is lining up a new docuseries for Marvel fans with 616. The show explores how Marvel’s rich legacy of stories, characters and creators exist within the “world outside your window”. Each documentary, helmed by a unique filmmaker, explores the intersections of storytelling, pop culture and fandom within the Marvel Universe.
The first teaser for the series was dropped online this week, alongside the show’s Comic-Con At Home panel. The panel saw directors Gillian Jacobs, Paul Scheer and executive producers Sarah Amos and Jason Sterman join moderator Angélique Roché.
“All of our characters have their own tone and their own vibe,” Amos explained. “We wanted to make sure we honored that same kind of tradition. The anthology nature of the series really made sense to us, because it allowed us to [focus on] each story and each storyteller, and then the next episode will take you on a completely different path.”
