Disney has announced details on the eighth episode of Marvel’s 616, a new series that 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.
Here is the official description for Episode 8 – Marvel Spotlight
The Marvel Spotlight program delivers Marvel’s stories of heroism and hope to a fresh medium: the stage! Marvel has created a series of one-act plays to challenge teenagers to explore the humans behind their favorite Marvel Super Heroes, including Ms. Marvel and Squirrel Girl, and examine universal challenges facing young adults today. This episode, directed by Golden Globe nominee Alison Brie (GLOW, Community), introduces a group of students at Florida’s Brandon High School as they delve into a whirlwind of auditions, blocking, and rehearsals. While the classmates forge bonds and thrive off their teacher’s encouragement, they grasp the moral of the plays — ordinary people can do extraordinary things.

The entire first season of Marvel’s 616 will arrive on Disney+ on Friday, November 20th.
