If you are looking forward to the upcoming new anthology docuseries Marvel’s 616 from Disney+ then you are in luck. Today, the streaming service gave us a sneak preview of two of the upcoming episodes. Individually, each documentary in this series tells a compelling story that brings its filmmaker’s vision to life.
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. 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.
Join Jacobs, Scheer and executive producers Sarah Amos and Jason Sterman with moderator Angélique Roché (host of Marvel’s Voices and The Women of Marvel Podcasts), tomorrow, Thurs., Jul. 23 at 1 p.m. PT for the virtual Comic-Con@Home panel; “A Look Inside ‘Marvel’s 616’”, where they will discuss the making of this new Disney+ original docuseries.
