This post I discuss via podcast Marvel’s exploration into becoming the massive transmedia corporation it is today, and will it go further?
Marvel is certainly the big ticket item for transmedia, they saw the opportunity and boy have they cashed in on it. It’s great to experience the universe and it’s rich stories outside of the cinema yet still with the cinema experience. And with the added knowledge you gain from connecting the dots between each story, or the excitement when characters crossover, you truly get a whole new level of experience from Marvel being transmedia. But is it heading towards too much of a good thing?
UPDATE: found a Marvel Universe watching guide so you won’t miss any channel of Marvel’s greatness!
