SUPERHEROES DECODED Documentary Coming To History

by on

History is set to release two part documentary Superheroes Decoded at the end of the month.

The first superheroes emerged in the dark days of the Great Depression and evolved into the blockbuster franchises we know today – their epic origin story is the story of America.

With rare access to top creators at both DC and Marvel, “Superheroes Decoded” uncovers how the rise of the superhero parallels America’s rise as a superpower in the 20th century, evolving through the decades into a uniquely American mythology that has captured audiences across the globe.

Using modern film clips, vintage comic artwork, historical archival material, and interviews with dozens of experts, fans and creators such as Captain America: Civil War star, Anthony Mackie; Captain America: Civil War directors, Anthony Russo and Joe Russo; A Game of Thrones author, George R. R. Martin; Iron ManDirector, Jon Favreau; former President of Marvel Comics, Stan Lee; and best-selling author and DC comic writer Brad Meltzer; “Superheroes Decoded” tells the story of the modern era through the lens of America’s greatest fictional heroes.

Superheroes Decoded premiers on Sunday, April 30 and Monday, May 1 at 9PM ET/PT
