There’s a new Marvel documentary coming to Disney+ next month and it looks like it’ll dive deep into the history of Marvel.
Marvel has announced that a new documentary titled Behind the Mask will be launching on Disney+ on February 12, 2021. There are few details known for certain about this documentary, but it is expected to feature a wide variety of guests. It’s believed the documentary will look at the rise of popularity of comic characters like Black Panther, Miles Morales, Ms. Marvel, Luke Cage, the X-Men and Captain Marvel.
Here is the synopsis for Behind the Mask:
From the very inception of comic books, secret identities have been an integral part of both Super Heroes and Villains leading “normal” lives. But it’s the characters beneath that resonate within us across generations of fans. Since the advent of the Marvel Age of Comics in the early 1960s, Marvel’s writers and artists have used the notion of identities to examine the evolving concept of equal rights. These legendary Marvel creations and stories have not only reflected the world outside our window – they have become a reflection of our own identities and who we truly are.
This sounds like it has all the makings of a great documentary, and it will be fun to see what new stories about our favorite comic characters are shared in just a few weeks’ time.
Behind the Mask will debut on Disney+ on February 12, 2021.
