The first being ‘Marvel’s 616’ is an anthological documentary series exploring “the intersection between Marvel’s rich legacy of stories, characters, and creators and the world outside your window.” Different filmmakers tackle the episodes which look at the real world context of Marvel Comics stories and their impact.
The second documentary will be titled ‘Marvel’s Hero Project’ and will focus on positive changes several young heroes are making in their own communities – inspiring kids who have dedicated their lives to selfless acts of bravery and kindness and are celebrated for the true superheroes they are.
