Disney+ is definitely front-loading its programming schedule for next month’s launch. We’ve already seen a ton of Marvel shows and old Disney favorites in the line-up. Now, Disney is looking to add something to inspire young fans with Marvel’s Hero Project.
When I first heard about Marvel’s Hero Project, I thought it was going to be along the lines of Who Wants To Be A Superhero?. Don’t get me wrong, I watched the heck out of that show (did I apply? I did. Don’t @me.), but it was almost painfully cheesy at times. From what we’re seeing now, Hero Project is going to be an entirely different animal.
For one thing, these heroes are already heroes within their communities. Marvel actively searched for kids and teens who were working to make the world better and pushing the boundaries of what people expect of them. Then, Marvel creators work to create a custom comic book that tells the kid’s story- and basically put the kid into the Marvel Universe as a superhero. That’s cool, okay?
Take a look at the trailer for Marvel’s Hero Project.
Marvel also dropped some details:
In Marvel’s Hero Project, a new series streaming exclusively on Disney+ when it arrives on November 12, several extraordinary, inspiring kids got their time in the Super Hero spotlight for the work they’ve done in their communities across the country. Their causes are as diverse as they are, and on Marvel’s Hero Project, Marvel comic editors found a way to tell their stories. In every episode, each outstanding kid will be surprised to find out that they’ve been immortalized in a Marvel Comic — which will be available for free in Marvel Unlimited and the Marvel Digital Comics Store! — as a brand new Super Hero, putting them among the ranks of the Marvel heroes they love.
Also, from the trailer, it looks like the kids get their own costumes, which, cool. Real talk, I’m an adult and I’m already planning to watch. I think this is going on the “bad day playlist” with Queer Eye and Schitt’s Creek.
Marvel’s Hero Project begins streaming November 12, 2019, when Disney+ drops.
