Disney+ has pretty much become Marvel central, especially now with the pandemic going on. Now that Black Widow and other Marvel movies being pushed to 2021, there is a big void of Marvel related content. Leave it up to Disney+ to deliver us a unique Marvel themed documentary called Marvel’s 616.
“Marvel’s 616” explores Marvel’s rich legacy of pioneering characters, creators and storytelling to reflect the world outside your window. Each documentary, helmed by a unique filmmaker, showcases the intersections of storytelling, pop culture, and fandom within the Marvel Universe. Episodes 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.
