Marvel Entertainment has released the official trailer for

Marvel's Behind the Mask will feature guests from across
Marvel's 80-year legacy, including the writers and artists
behind the rise of characters like Black Panther, Miles
Morales, Ms. Marvel, Luke Cage, the X-Men, Captain Marvel, and
many other characters in the Marvel Universe, highlighting
Marvel's impact on pop culture and media.
The official synopsis for the documentary special reads: "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."
The documentary is directed by Michael Jacobs. It is produced
by Chris Gary and Ryan Simon for Tarmac Creative and Strike
Anywhere. Joe Quesada, Shane Rahmani, Stephen Wacker, John
Cerilli, Harry Go, and Sarah Amos of Marvel New Media are
