Disney has announced that details on the second season of Marvel’s Storyboards, with the first episode arriving on YouTube today. Fans will be able to tune in to the second season of Marvel’s Storyboards on Marvel’s YouTube channel and Marvel.com this holiday season – all for free! Originally the show was going to be a Disney+ exclusive, but was moved to YouTube at the beginning of the pandemic.
Marvel’s Storyboards is a 12-episode non-fiction series following Joe Quesada, EVP, Creative Director of Marvel Entertainment, as he explores the origin stories and inspirations of storytellers of all mediums, backgrounds, and experiences at their favorite spots throughout New York City and beyond. The series aired its first six-episode season this past summer, and continuing this second season, will showcase a variety of visionary, critically acclaimed storytellers includingSasheer Zamata (actress, stand-up comedian and former SNL), Ed Viesturs (high-altitude mountaineer), Nelson Figueroa (former MLB pitcher for the New York Mets), Gillian Jacobs (Community, Love), Samhita Mukhopadhyay (Executive Editor, Teen Vogue), and Taboo (Black Eyed Peas), adding to the first season’s featured guests Natalia Cordova-Buckley (Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.), Bobby Lopez (EGOT winning songwriter, Frozen, Avenue Q), Johnny Weir (former Olympic figure skater), Christian Borle (Something Rotten, Smash), Margaret Stohl (Life of Captain Marvel), and Hugh Jackman (Wolverine).
“Looking at the show and the reception we saw for season one, we were humbled by how our guests’ stories were resonating and inspiring fans. We are all so grateful to these incredible talents for sharing their journeys with all of us,” said Quesada. “The mission of Marvel’s Storyboards has been to show that we are all storytellers, and no matter how we express it, those stories have a way of connecting us and lifting all of our spirits in challenging times, regardless of the medium. Marvel’s Storyboards season two takes that notion even further into the world of sports, music, media, and entertainment, and we can’t wait for you all to experience these stories yourselves!”
For more than 20 years, Quesada has overseen stories at the House of Ideas in the worlds of publishing, film, animation, and television, serving as both Marvel’s Chief Creative Officer and Marvel’s Editor-in-Chief. During his 10-year tenure as Editor-in-Chief (the longest term since Stan Lee held the position), Marvel underwent a creative boom and became home to the comic industry’s greatest talents, which continues to hold true today. As CCO, he brought that same vision to the whole of Marvel Entertainment, and he began to explore more stories in unexpected places.
“After doing this show, I’ve been personally blown away by the sheer talent and passion that each of these storytellers bring to their work, and I hope that our fans will feel the same,” Quesada shared earlier this summer.
