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?
