Marvel’s ‘Hero Project’ Preview

Marvel provides a synopsis for the web series on their official website. “In life, it doesn’t take wearing a suit of iron, carrying a mythical hammer or swinging from spider webs to be a real hero,” the synopsis reads. “Sometimes the person who can make a positive difference in the world is the person who simply sees a problem and has the passion to find a creative solution. The first of its kind for Marvel Entertainment, the 20-episode series shares the remarkable, positive change several young heroes are making in their own communities across the country.”

The series will tackle an array of different topics. In one episode, a girl named Hailey helps loved ones with Alzheimer’s make connections through puzzles. In another, a young boy who grows an urban garden to feed the hungry despite his own family’s financial hardships. “Anyone can watch this show and feel like they can go out and do something. It helps families talk about difficult issues,” said series producer Sarah Amos.

Amos also talked to Real Screen about the Marvel format, and how a real-life series marks new territory for the studio. “Non-fiction content is definitely a newer space for Marvel fans, and it’s something that they haven’t seen as much from us in the past, and we are just really excited and honored that this is our first outing in this space,” she explained.

“The stars of these episodes are not Marvel, they are the Jahkils, the Adonises, the Elijahs, the Rebekahs, the Haileys of the world,” Amos continued. “It is all of these amazing young people who have taken an opportunity to see a problem or an issue that they want to tackle and they want to help solve without thinking about themselves, without thinking about how difficult it might be… Every Spider-Man story is just as much a Peter Parker story as it is a story about Spider-Man, and so what we wanted to do with this show is really make sure that we were honoring these kids first and foremost.”

Amos said that the most rewarding aspect of the series is interacting with the kids, and rewarding them with their own comic book. “We have 20 amazing kids, and their stories are incredible, and it was the first time that we had really tackled doing something like this,” she remarked. “How we wanted to talk about the comic book creation, even how the reveals would take place, and the delivery mechanism for giving the kids the comic books, all of that had to be figured out, because it had never been done before. These kids were really quite shocked, and they and their families were quite moved by what is a really special moment of getting to see yourself on a comic book.”
