Interesting article. -

 

In the midst of the massive geek Mecca that is San Diego Comic-Con, the big Marvel Studios movie panel had all the theater of a presidential campaign rally. Tom Hiddleston appeared in costume as Loki, the bad guy from Thor, and rallied the crowd in character. Then: so many movie stars, including the full casts of the upcoming Captain America sequel and Guardians of the Galaxy. And just when it seemed like it was over, Joss Whedon, patron saint of nerds, walked out for a Steve Jobsian one-more-thing and introduced the first teaser for The Avengers sequel. Eight thousand fans, some of whom had been waiting in line since the night before, shrieked like their souls were being ripped from their bodies.

Tara Moore:  "With adaptive sound to original shows and even Wolverine's new adventures in Japan, the comic company's growing far bigger than books."

Henrik Safegaard - Cloneartist's insight:

Comic book geeks: Marvel loves you. But it wants to expand its social circle. Don't worry. Whether it's debuting Wolverine's Japanese adventures or adding adaptive sound to your reading experience, the company will always hold you diehards dear. But at this year’s SXSW Interactive festival, Marvel unveiled five digital initiatives to woo non-fans, too.

Comics are becoming a powerful option for transmedia projects so it's interesting to look at how the genre is evolving ...

Niclas Holmqvist's curator insight, March 12, 2013 2:25 AM

Seriebranschen förändras. Läsarna har blivit färre, men mediet har blivit accepterat och historierna breder ut sig i andra kanaler.

Debbie Elicksen 's curator insight, March 12, 2013 8:31 AM

Henrik Safegaard - Cloneartist's insight:

Disney/Marvel has inked a rather epic deal with Netflix: four series with 13 episodes each, all leading up to a final team-up miniseries. The subjects of those series: Daredevil, Luke Cage, Iron Fist and Jessica Jones. And if that wasn’t a sweet enough deal for fans, the deal is also part of a broader arrangement between the two that grants Netflix exclusive, first-run subscription rights to Disney and Marvel films - See more at: http://www.thenerdmachine.com/marvel-at-netflix-intersecting-comics-and-transmedia/#sthash.VrVc0Tpb.dpuf

malek's curator insight, November 9, 2013 7:53 AM

a great strategic move: 2nd tier heroes who won't make it to big screen deployed for TV shows. Spinning an old asset is always one of the best marketing decisions you can make.

This is pretty amazing news. Disney has always been a leader in expanding its product into new markets.
