Avengers: Endgame directors Joe and Anthony Russo are working on a docuseries about the infamous Marvel vs DC rivalry.
The Marvel vs DC rivalry has been piping hot over the last few years. Marvel broke records with the Avengers movies and DC hit back with Justice League. DC gave Wonder Woman her own solo flick and Marvel hit back with Captain Marvel.

A synopsis of the series reads: “Slugfest will bring to light little-known stories from the history of this uniquely American art form. The men and women who were behind the creation of some of the best-known and most revered characters in the world will share their stories and reflect on the symbiotic relationship between DC and Marvel, whose rivalry pushed the medium to its greatest heights.”
Slugfest will arrive on Quibli’s streaming service on April 6, 2020.
