World Construction Via Networking: The Storytelling Mechanics of the Marvel Cinematic Universe

Christopher Joseph Hansen

With the mainstream's growing acceptance of worlds and storytelling spread among several different texts - e.g., films, television series, novels, and comics - this pioneering study employs a multidisciplinary approach combining transmediality, network theory, and narratology to analyze the narrative network of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. In this analysis, Christopher Hansen thoroughly examines storytelling techniques while providing a fresh theoretical framework to develop a structural model for interconnected narratives. He redefines our understanding of narrative dynamics in one of the most successful cinematic franchises of all time.
