Source: Press Release

Marvel sent us a press release this afternoon advertising their new video series in conjunction with MTV.com, Marvel NOW! Behind the ReEvolution, which will chronicle the behind the scenes story of Marvel NOW!. Fans will get a look at what goes into making these comics, from a look at the 20 foot long white board that manages Wolverine's appearances in every single Marvel team book, to suspenseful scenes showing Marvel interns dumping a limp Jason Aaron in a bathtub full of ice water to try to snap him out a of a heroin overdose (this happens once per episode). The series promises to have it all, and you won't want to miss it, even though it's on a competing website that Marvel has asked us to advertise with this press release.

If you haven't yet seen Marvel and MTV's Avengers Vs. X-Men War Journals, we have an exclusive clip here of the creative retreat prior to AvX where Marvel's editorial team decided on the evolution of Cyclops' character (code-named J.E.S.U.S.) during the event (Marvel's offices were under construction at the time):

Here's the press release:
