Meghan Camarena Goes Super Short-Form in Marvel Instgram Series
A murder mystery set in Marvel’s “spider-verse,” each of its five episodes are a mere nine frames in length. Shot by celebrity photographer Michael Becker, it stars Camarena as Spider-Gwen alongside actresses Ashlyn Pearce as Mary Jane and Joanna Sotomura as Silk (a.k.a. Cindy Moon), stuntman Yoshua Sudarso as Yu Komori (Spider-Man 70091), and Twitch streamer Wesley Johnson as Peter Parker.
The series kicks off today with the premiere of Camarena’s episode, and new installments will debut daily through Oct. 30. They will be accompanied by three-frame stories, also rolling out daily, featuring Spider-Man (@PeterSAdrian), Black Cat (@VampyBitMe), Spider-Woman (@NikkiPhillippi), Miles Morales (@Pierrelepew) and Spider-Girl (@Glowlexa).
Five additional influencers — Joey Graceffa, Nikki Phillipi, Linda Le, Alexa Sutherland and Pierre Demery — will help fill out and promote the story. Every story will run parallel to each other and feature clues for viewers to piece together.
This isn’t Camarena’s only costumed role this October. She is currently celebrating Halloween on her YouTube channel with her annual month of Spooktober programming, which had her fans choose an“intergalactic princess” outfit for her to wear to New York Comic Con (Oct. 8–11) using CrowdStar’s Covet Fashion styling app.
Earlier this year, she was seen opposite best friend Graceffa and other top digital influencers as one of the contestants in the zombie apocalypse reality competition series “Fight of the Living Dead,” available on YouTube and geek-targeting streaming service ConTV. Last week, it was announced that a second season of “Fight of the Living Dead” would be one of the upcoming original offerings on the new YouTube Red subscription service.
