Character and motivation in the Marvel Cinematic Universe: Phase One
What is it about the Marvel Cinematic Universe that keeps us coming back for more? Is it the big, explosive action, special effects and larger than life costumes, or is it something much simpler?
In this special, feature length essay podcast, Noel Mellor looks at the history of the MCU and how Marvel found its formula by focusing on character as a way to engage audiences and enhance the blockbuster experience. Using illustrative clips from the series, it inspects the concerns and motivations of these characters, what makes them do what they do, and how this makes them so much more compelling for audiences.
