Last Thursday, Marvel’s Voices returned for an incredible seventh season. Host Angélique Roché is back to break down diversity within the Marvel Universe, with new episodes available Thursdays everywhere podcasts are available.
Details taken from Marvel’s press release, this new season will focus on “Building a Better Table: The Power of Inclusive Creative Teams” and what inclusion means for the future of Marvel’s storytelling. Throughout the eight-episode season, Angélique is joined by various Marvel storytellers to discuss their professional journeys, creative processes, and collaborations. Guests include Marvel’s Moon Girl and Devil Dinosaur producer Pilar Flynn and series stars Libe Barer and Gary Anthony Williams; comic creators Cody Ziglar, Sheena Howard, Adam Serwer, and Jeremy Holt; Marvel’s Director of Talent Relations & Publishing Recruitment, Jon-Michael Ennis.
“It is not enough to solely talk about diversity, it’s about making it happen. From comics to movies, animation, and games, important work is being done to bring new and richer stories featuring the Marvel characters we know and love,” said host Angélique Roché. “This season I’m excited to not only explore the stories behind the storytellers, but also the work that has been and is currently being done to expand the table and bring new creative voices throughout the Marvel Universe.”
