Avengers: End Game directors Anthony Russo and Joseph Russo will executive produce the docuseries Slugfest for yet-to-be launched mobile streamer Quibi.

The series, inspired by the book Slugfest: Inside the Epic, 50-year Battle between Marvel and DC, chronicles the “race to the top” between the rival comics-publishing powerhouses.

Marvel and DC’s “behind-the-scenes endeavors and achievements” will be featured, such as the secret crossover inspired by the Halloween parades of small-town Rutland, Vermont, and the first official crossover between Superman and Spider-Man.

Slugfest will be directed by Don Argott and Sheena M. Joyce, and produced Todd Makurath, Peter Rieveschl, Nick Gilhool and Jen Casey from Wonderbust (formerly Roam), the non-fiction arm of the Russo brothers’ AGBO Films.

Anthony and Joseph’s credits in the Marvel Cinematic Universe include Avengers: Infinity War, Captain America: Winter Soldier and Captain America: Civil War.

Quibi, the short form streamer helmed by Jeffrey Katzenberg and Meg Whitman, will launch April 6, 2020 in the U.S.
