Earlier this month, Disney+ released its fall lineup which features new original movies, series, and blockbuster hits. Included in the announcement was the new nonfiction series “Marvel 616,” an anthology documentary series exploring the impact of the Marvel Universe. The new series was scheduled to arrive on the streaming service on Friday, November 20th.
However, today, Disney+ sent out an email to UK subscribers stating that the show would be available on October 16th, a full month earlier than expected. The email could have been sent out in error, as two other Disney+ originals will also be debuting on the 16th, “Meet the Chimps,” and “Clouds.” So, we’ll have to wait and see if Disney+ clarifies this update further.
“Marvel’s 616” explores how Marvel’s rich legacy of stories, characters and creators exist within the world outside your window. Each documentary, helmed by a unique filmmaker, explores the intersections of storytelling, pop culture, and fandom within the Marvel Universe. Films 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.
“Marvel’s 616” is produced by Marvel New Media with Supper Club. The series is executive produced by Joe Quesada, Shane Rahmani, Stephen Wacker, John Cerilli, Harry Go, and Sarah Amos for Marvel; and Jason Sterman, Brian McGinn, and David Gelb for Supper Club.
