The Russo Bros.’ Marvel vs. DC Documentary, Slugfest, Will Premiere This Month

Last year, the Quibi streaming service died so quickly that it never had the chance to debut Slugfest, the Marvel vs. DC documentary executive produced by Anthony and Joe Russo. However, the doc has a new home and a premiere date. The Roku Channel will premiere the first episode on Friday, December 24. Additionally, The Roku Channel debuted a new trailer for the series.

The series is based on Reed Tucker’s book, Slugfest: Inside the Epic, 50-Year Battle Between Marvel and DC. The series starts at the beginning with the creation of Superman and the emergence of superheroes. And as the trailer also illustrates, DC and Marvel needed each other. As it says in the video, “without Marvel, DC probably wouldn’t exist. And without DC, Marvel certainly wouldn’t exist.”
