Update – Disney has confirmed to us that the global launch date is November 20th
Earlier this year, Disney announced that its new documentary series “Marvel’s 616“ would be coming to Disney+ on November 20th.
However, today, Disney+ sent out an email to UK subscribers stating that the show would be available on October 16th.
“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.
This wouldn’t be the first release date change for the show, as it was originally revealed by Marvel, that it would be heading to Disney+ on September 25th, before being delayed to November 20th.
It’s very possible that this email could be a mistake, since another new series, “Meet The Chimps” is due to arrive on Disney+ on October 16th, along with an all-new original movie, “Clouds”. Having three new Disney+ Originals launching on the same date hasn’t been seen since the initial launch, so I’m thinking this is a mistake.
Are you excited to see “Marvel’s 616”?
