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.
