Marvel fans will soon be able to get a peek behind the curtain of the comic book giant with the upcoming Disney+ docuseries Marvel’s 616, and ahead of its Comic-Con@Home panel tomorrow, we’ve got two first-look clips from the show.
The first clip 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, while the second clip is from the Paul Scheer-directed episode “Lost and Found” and follows the actor and comedian’s eye-opening and hilarious journey to discover the “forgotten” characters of Marvel Comics.
“Marvel’s 616” 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.
