Marvel’s Storyboards will follow Marvel chief creative officer Joe Quesada as he discovers the origin stories of popular figures across various forms of media and entertainment. The upcoming 12 episodes will feature several prominent guests, including Teen Vogue executive editor Samhita Mukhopadhyay, actor Hugh Jackman (Wolverine), and Olympic figure skater Johnny Weir.
The 10- to 15-minute episodes will also discuss each guest’s love for Marvel and personal account of how they overcame personal or professional struggles.
“A comparison that everyone knows is Anthony Bourdain: Parts Unknown,” Quesada says to Wired. “We go on locations, but instead of food or culture being the focus, the focus is a guest, the way they tell stories, and their story. The real thrill to me is to find out, ‘What’s your story?’ People tell their stories in all different ways. It’s not just writing, drawing, or filming. Athletes tell stories in how they perform. Dancers tell stories with their bodies.”
The series will follow the debut of two additional culture-focused series from Marvel, Marvel’s Hero Project and Marvel’s 616, which will also stream on Disney+.
While Disney+ is set to launch on Nov. 12, members of the service will have to wait for Marvel’s Storyboards’ debut. There’s no word from the company on the series’ premiere date.
