AAA and Marvel comics have had a working relationship since 2020, whereby the wrestling promotion is allowed to present in-ring characters based on Marvel superheroes.

After the Marvel Lucha Libre Match, which was not part of the FITE TV stream, fans in attendance were shown a trailer for the new show, which will debut on December 21st.

There has been no announcement yet as to whether the show will be subject to regional restrictions.
