Check Out The Trailer For Marvel’s Storyboards

Marvel’s Storyboards is a 12-episode non-fiction series that will be aired in two six-episode seasons, showcasing a variety of visionary, critically acclaimed storytellers including 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), Hugh Jackman (Wolverine), Sasheer Zamata (SNL), Ed Viesturs (high-altitude mountaineer), Natalia Cordova-Buckley (Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.), 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)!

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.

In addition to Marvel’s Storyboards, Quesada serves as Executive Producer on “Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.” for ABC, “Marvel’s Hero Project” and “Marvel 616” for Disney+, and Marvel’s animation projects including Marvel Rising. Stay tuned to Marvel’s YouTube channel and social channels for the first season of Marvel’s Storyboards each week this summer – and for season 2 later this year!

Marvel’s Storyboards Season 1 and 2 are produced by Marvel New Media and BFD Productions. The series is presented by State Farm. Tune in to starting Thursday, July 23!

Marvel’s Storyboards Starring Joe Quesada Is Heading to Disney+

As we near the U.S. launch of Disney+, the ultimate streaming destination for movies and shows from Disney, Pixar, Marvel, Star Wars, National Geographic, and more, on November 12, a new Marvel New Media non-fiction project has emerged! Marvel’s Storyboards is the third Marvel New Media series to head to Disney+, following the previously announced Marvel’s 616 (Working Title) and Marvel’s Hero Project.

The 12-episode non-fiction original series will follow Joe Quesada, Marvel’s Chief Creative Officer, as he explores the origin stories and creative drives of storytellers of all mediums, backgrounds, and experiences. Guests include Robert Lopez (songwriter, Book of Mormon, Avenue Q), Samhita Mukhopadhyay (Executive Editor, Teen Vogue), Hugh Jackman (Wolverine), Johnny Weir (Olympic figure skater), and Ed Viesturs (high-altitude mountaineer).

Each episode, which spans 10-15 minutes, of Marvel’s Storyboards will also dive into each visionary’s relationship with Marvel as well as a personal account of how they overcame a personal or professional hurdle.

In an interview with Wired, Quesada likened it to a popular series. “A comparison that everyone knows is Anthony Bourdain: Parts Unknown,” Quesada says. “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?’ revealed Quesada. “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 premiere date for Marvel’s Storyboard will be announced at a later date.

Disney+ is launching in late 2019, Disney+ will be the ultimate streaming destination for movies and shows from Disney, Pixar, Marvel, Star Wars, and National Geographic. From The Walt Disney Company’s Direct-to-Consumer and International segment, Disney+ will offer ad-free programming with a variety of original feature-length films, documentaries, live action and animated series and short-form content, along with unprecedented access to Disney’s incredible library of film and television entertainment.
