Disney is set to release a brand new documentary series, “Marvel’s 616” on Disney+ on November 20th.
Some of the creators of the show, Alison Brie, Sarah Amos, Jason Sterman, and David Gelb, spoke Arabic the virtual PaleyFest Fall TV Previews 2020 to promote the upcoming show.
Topics in the panel include: exploring how Marvel and the outside world have influenced one another; the series’ eight episodes as discrete films with different styles and visions; the Marvel Spotlight program, which helps to craft plays for high school students, as seen in Brie’s episode; highlighting “Japanese Spider-Man,” the 1970s kids’ TV series that reinterpreted the webslinger for Japanese audiences; tracking down information and interviewees for the extremely niche show, never before seen in the West; the “616” title, which refers to the many realities within the Marvel multiverse; and creating space for comic book newcomers and veterans alike to see themselves reflected in the stories.
