Disney+ Releases Sneak Peek At New Marvel Series

Disney+ has released a sneak peek of the new Marvel series Marvel's 616, the new docuseries that will debut on the streaming service this fall. That sneak peek comes in the form of two clips: the first clip is from Community star Gillian Jacobs' episode "Higher, Further, Faster", which looks at the impact of the women of Marvel Comics. You can watch that clip above.
