”Slugfest“ will hit The Roku Channel on Christmas Eve
“Audiences will leave ’Slugfest’ with a whole new understanding of how the rivalry between two creative powerhouses shaped the iconic storylines and characters that fans around the world have come to know and love,” Joe and Anthony Russo said in a statement. ”We’re thrilled to partner with The Roku Channel to unpack the fascinating, but untold, history behind the most well-known competition in comics.”
“Slugfest” will feature footage of Stan Lee, as well as firsthand accounts from DC Comics archivists and more.
The Russo Brothers are, of course, Marvel staples in their own right. Together, they directed four of the MCU’s most beloved films: “Captain America: The Winter Soldier” (2014), “Captain America: Civil War” (2016), “Avengers: Infinity War” (2018), and “Avengers: Endgame” (2019).
“Slugfest” is created and executive produced by Anthony Russo and Joe Russo. Kevin Smith narrates the series. Don Argott and Sheena M. Joyce served as directors. Producers include Todd Makurath, Peter Rieveschl, Nick Gilhool and Jen Casey. The series was created in partnership with AGBO. It was previously a Quibi title. Roku acquired Quibi’s catalog in January.
