SHOULD MARVEL MOVIES STICK TO CANON?

 

The YouTube video I created this week explores the world of remediation. It distinguishes the difference between immediacy and hypermediacy with reference to the Marvel Universe, MU for short. Remediation’s two facets exist within the Marvel Universe to simultaneously captivate while paying service to those who were raised on the original medium. The MU originally began as comics now they have expanded into films, artworks, and fanfiction. But should these Marvel movies just stick to canon? Or had remediation revolutionised the comic industry?

    Obviously as a major comic book nerd I love the subject material! The only problems I can find with the video are that the quality of the image and the audio aren’t that great but I’m assuming you’re using a laptop webcam so that’s okay. The content is great so the audio and video isn’t really that much of a problem.

    I was thinking of doing that week’s blog post on DC Comics so it’s pretty cool to see someone tackle a very similar idea
