ABC aired the Marvel Studios' documentary Marvel: 75 Years, From Pulp to Pop! and i'm pleased to let you know that the full documentary is now available to watch online, thanks to ABC. The documentary gives fans a little history on the comic book company, taking us through how it was started, the challenges it has had over the years, and where it is going:
"The special takes a look at Marvel’s roots, beginning in 1939 as Timely Comics with Martin Goodman and Stan Lee emerging as key figures in Marvel’s history in the 1940s along with the creation of Captain America, the impact of World War II and the decline of super hero stories and the subsequent downfall of the comic book industry in the 1950s. After a decade of decline, Stan Lee and Jack Kirby created the modern super hero team in 1961 with the Fantastic Four, helping to bring back superhero stories and ushering in “The Marvel Age,” which saw the creation of the Hulk,Iron Man, The X-Men and Spider-Man. A shift in the character paradigm in the 1970s also brought culturally relevant characters such as the Black Panther, Falcon, Black Widow, Luke Cage and Ms. Marvel to the forefront . But the mid-1990s were not so kind to Marvel as the company fell into bankruptcy. However, a new batch of creative visionaries brought about a modern day renaissance, revitalizing publishing. Soon after Marvel saw its characters and stories take over the silver screen, and Marvel Studios was born, leading into today’s successes on the big screen and television."

Also, Marvel revealed the International release dates for Marvel Movies Phase 3! And, guess what, those of us who are living in international territories, outside U.S, will be in luck because we'll get to see all the upcoming Phase 3 Marvel movies before they do in the United States! The main reason is because international audiences are much bigger than the US, and of course International box office money is important to Marvel and Disney.
