Marvel Releasing Documentary About Mark Millar's CIVIL WAR From Award Winning Filmmaker
At the South By Southwest Interactive festival in Austin, Texas today, Marvel announced plans for a new video series called Marvel's Tales to Astonish, a series of 13 minute documentaries about some of their most famous stories. The first will focus on Mark Millar and Steve McNiven's Civil War, and it will be helmed by Eric Drath, a filmmaker who won an Emmy for the 2008 HBO boxing documentary Assault in the Ring. "To him, ["Civil War"] was interesting, because you had two of Marvel's most major characters squaring off against each other," John Cerilli, Marvel's vice president of digital content and programming said. "All of us who grew up reading comic books, especially Marvel, we all know that our heroes beat the crap out of each other. But this was interesting to him, and one of the things that led him into this. We started telling him more about the story, and why they were squaring off against each other, and the concept of what the Superhuman Registration Act really meant to the real world that we live in." Interviewees include Joss Whedon, Clark Gregg, Brian Michael Bendis and Stan Lee, along with news personalities Tucker Carlson, Chris Hayes and Curtis Sliwa. No release date has been announced.
