Behind The Mask: Marvel Documentary Will Hit Disney+
Firstly: Do you ever think about secret identities? Super hero secret identities? Yep. Me too.
Ever since I ran around the playground, with my Spider-Man “Underoos” giving me secret super powers, the idea of having an alter ego has been with me.
Secondly, and soon, Disney Plus will dissect the secret lives of Marvels heroes in a new documentary.

Today, Marvel Entertainment announced a brand-new documentary special, Marvel’s Behind the Mask, will debut Friday, February 12 exclusively on Disney+! Marvel’s Behind the Mask will explore the power of identity behind the world’s most iconic Super Heroes we know and love today.
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.
Meanwhile, who will the documentary focus on? Well, everyone?
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.
Finally, Marvel added:
Marvel’s Behind the Mask is produced by Marvel New Media with Tarmac Creative. The film is directed by Michael Jacobs and 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 serve as Executive Producers for Marvel.
