This is what I was afraid could happen in #convergenceculture, and an indication that transmedia storytelling privileges fans of higher class status who can afford the various platforms necessary to get the full story and fill the gaps. This is an exploitation of fandom. #mcu
At the beginning of convergence culture, it was "cool" to find instances where companies were experimenting with the new digital technologies and testing how those new platforms could become incorporated into their productions, and thus to give more "stuff" to their fans.
But back in my 2011 published article (ijoc.org/index.php/ijoc…) on gameplay marketing, it was clear that such experiments had the great potential to become exploitation, as such campaigns often relied on fan labor to succeed, all for the profit of the company behind the "stuff."

I've been resisting tweeting about this, because I have little desire to weigh in on the #Marvel discourse. I understand both sides of the argument. But I want to share my own personal experience of recently watching all of the #MCU movies with my sons, now 9 and 7.
After I saw #Endgame and realized the arc came to an incredibly satisfying conclusion, I wanted to start watching them with the kids. We mostly followed the order laid out by my former BuzzFeed colleague, @JennaGuillaume, here, buzzfeed.com/jennaguillaume…
@JennaGuillaume ...with one fuckup: We watched the first "Iron Man" first, not the first Cap. I regret it!

A running thread of things that @Twitter could do to unlock value for users. Will add to overtime. Please feel free to retweet and reply with your own, most of these below I have just taken and summarized from others. In no particular order. 1/♾ #JustKidding 🤔 or am I?
@Twitter I drafted a tweet on my phone but of course, can't access "draft's" on the desktop. So lets maybe start there. The desktop and @Tweetdeck version should be MORE robust than the mobile app not less. Tweetdeck, for example, has no bookmarks, emoji's, live video, polls, gif's, etc
@Twitter @TweetDeck There are SO MANY great meaningful quotes, threads, replies, and conversations that vanish into the Twitter ether, drowned out by hot takes, snark, and 280 character riffs on what some influencer or politician just did. Find a way to collect and resurface this treasure trove.

So, yeah. There are parts of me that feel gut-punched or angry at larger corporate forces, but the biggest feeling I have in my heart right now, by far, is pride. I’m so fucking proud with what we got to do on #Cloakanddagger.
This was the first pilot I’d ever written, i was very green, and I put my heart into it, and then it was put in a drawer. When I got the call five years later that they wanted to make it, I wasn’t surprised. Because you can’t keep Tandy and Tyrone in a drawer.
This is who #CloakandDagger have always been, since kid-me first met them in the pages of Spiderman comics. They show up and then they go away and they have a way of showing up again. Even on the comics page, you can’t keep Tandy & Tryone in a drawer.

Abrimos hilo sobre #VFX, donde muestro planos de películas antes y después del trabajo de efectos visuales, y os enseño el proceso por pasos en #GIFs animados. ¿Va?
Empezamos con esta escena de #DoctorStrange. Aquí podéis ver qué es real y qué es digital.
#DelSetALaPantalla #cine
Seguimos con #TheMartian. Podéis ver que se rodó en un set bastante completo y que digitalmente se añadieron el paisaje marciano del fondo, los efectos atmosféricos y la corrección de color. Aquí por pasos y capas.
#DelSetALaPantalla #cine #VFX #EfectosVisuales #GIFs
Continuamos con varios planos de #AliceInWonderland (2010) de Tim Burton. Como veis en ocasiones hay sets de rodaje, pero en otras lo único que se conserva del plate rodado es a las actrices y poco más.

Most have already forgotten that just months prior to the Spider-Man fallout, problems had already been brewing btw both studios with Sony pushing Disney hard to associate their Spider-verse with the MCU

Timeline of dated reports on how “Venom” killed the MCU deal for #Spiderman

#LendoHQs Por conta de #SpiderManFarFromHome, fui (re)ler uma das origens do personagem e voltei a uma versão que tenho pouquissimo contato. Sendo assim, peguei a Coleção Oficial de Graphic Novels #Marvel #20 com Ultimate Homem-Aranha: Poder e Responsabilidade, de Bendis e Bagley
Para quem não conhece, o selo Ultimate foi uma tentativa da #Marvel em apresentar uma nova versão de seus heróis sem necessariamente encerrar a chamada "cronologia regular" da editora. Um universo alternativo, por assim dizer, e que teve início justamente com o Homem-Aranha.
Aqui, em Poder e Responsabilidade, temos as sete primeiras edições de Ultimate Spider-Man (2000) recontando a clássica origem do aracnídeo para o novo século. E dentro disso, Brian Michael Bendis criou a mais interessante e rica versão desta história, contando filmes e animações.

Tras el estreno de #AvengersEndame he leído muchas críticas sobre el papel de las heroínas y ese momento feminista "que no venía a nada". Pues bien, hago hilo con perspectiva de género sobre la película. Spoiler: Para mi es un peliculón que neutraliza muchos prejuicios sexistas
Desde luego no es nada nuevo que cada vez que hay una película o serie que rompe con estereotipos o el "status quo" las cavenas se remueven y tiemblan los cimientos tuiteros. Da igual si es #Marvel o #DC el rechazo es común. Pero sí debe ser nuevo analizarlo bien y comprenderlo.
Ya hace tiempo hice un hilo sobre los estereotipos sexistas, que están en la estructura social fomentando la desigualdad y de la violencia. Pues bien, la ideología patriarcal se sostiene con estas concepciones de "masculinidad" y "feminidad" artificiales.

11 years and 21 films later, #AvengersEndgame is just a few days away. So, here’s presenting the #UltimateMarvelMarathon, where we watch every film in the #MCU, in the greatest Marvel Studios throwback you’ve seen.

Join us, won’t you?
Here's what we are watching on the first day of #UltimateMarvelMarathon.

Which one is your favourite?
#UltimateMarvelMarathon | And so we begin with #IronMan !

"I can’t help but think about how Tony Stark's Iron Man suit has evolved over time. In every film sees the suit change subtly. In #AvengersEndgame it looks like the sleekest it has ever been" | @pradeep_smenon

Abrimos nuevo hilo sobre producción y #VFX de #cine, que ya toca. En esta ocasión #AvengersInfinityWar. #Marvel no escatimó en efectos visuales en esta entrega. Comenzamos con personajes reales peleando con villanos digitales en set. Así lo hicieron en Dneg.
#DeshilachandoCine
Vamos con el personaje digital del malvado Ebony Maw y su rifi rafe con Dr Strange. Así lo crearon y dieron vida en Cinesite y Framestore. Fijáos en las sutilezas de sus movimientos y los detalles de su piel. Ingeniería fina.
#AvengersInfinityWar #Marvel #VFX #cine #EbonyMaw
Las escenas en el bosque en #AvengersInfinityWar se rodaron en set real añadiendo pantallas croma para recrear los fondos. Fijaos en la bajada de la Bruja Escarlata, cómo se solapa la animación del personaje digital con el salto de la actriz real sin que se note.

Capitão Marvel, Miss Marvel, #CaptainMarvel ... A história dos quadrinhos dessas duas franquias é vasta e se amplia por diversos personagens da #MarvelComics. Carol Danvers, Mar-Vell, Genis-Vell, Monica Rambeau...

Segue a linha falando de cada um deles e sua trajetória nas HQs
O primeiro é justamente ao que dá nome a todos eles: Mar-Vell, o Capitão Marvel.

Espião Kree que assume a identidade de Walter Lawson e passa a se afeiçoar aos humanos enquanto escapa das artimanhas de Yon-Rogg.

Aventureiro do espaço que aos poucos se torna simbolo do heroísmo
A trajetória dele passa a sofrer total mudança quando #Thanos (ele mesmo) ameaça todo o universo em sua sede de poder. Isso faz com que Mar-Vell seja escolhido para ser portador da "Consciência Cósmica", tornando-se o campeão da existência.

Major incident at the #ConEd plant right by my house just now. Sky is lit up like the 4th of July. #Astoria #Queens #NYC
Everyone is safe and sound over here. We have all gotten a kick out of reading thru the mentions. Thanks for the entertaining night, Twitterverse.
I'm sure we can all chalk this up to @Noahsyndergaard coming back to

So in honor of all the fallen #Netflix #Marvel series, here's a thread about the fanfiction MCU show that my buddy Francois (@francoisvigneault on IG) & I have been talking about off and on for like 3+ damn years. It's set in 1973 and it's called FURY: Agent Of S.H.I.E.L.D.
(1/?)
Now, when I say we've been talking about this for years, I mean we started talking about it before Avengers 2. Plot beats, themes, & everything. We kept coming back to it-every time a new movie came out we'd be like "we should draw this up & post about it" but we never did.
(2/?)
So we came up with a lot of this stuff before characters got cast or explored in the real MCU. We set it in the past before Agent Carter came out & folded that into our plans. Ant Man etc hadn't come out. I'll note who we cast in our Young Nick Fury show. (3/?)

Marvel's Black Panther won Original Score, Album, and Song at the Hollywood Music In Media awards. Congrats @ludwiggoransson @SZA & @kendricklamar @SounwaveTDE Al Shux. filmtrophies.com/hollywood-musi…
Russo Brothers show their support for Director Ryan Coogler and Black Panther cast. Oscar season 💖. Seeing other Marvel Cinematic Universe directors show support is awesome.

Oh hell. Death is bloody inconvenient, isn't it? There you are, cruising along, doing your thing and then... BAM. Someone drops dead. And no it's not a surprise. You knew it was coming. You treasured every day. Smiled every time you saw that person acting in anything.

#StanLee
And then one day, you wake up, just like any other day, get out bed; groan, take a shit, shower, shave, drink your coffee. And hear your idol is dead, while you walk out the door, not quite dry from your shower.

Where were you when you heard, Stan Lee died?

#StanLeeRIP
Do you stop, look at the time, and realize there is nothing you need to be doing at this particular moment.

Nothing more important than listening to the news. Learning nothing and imagining instead what it must have been like for Stan Lee to die.

We don’t always have the time or budget to collect many new/unique sounds for every film, esp. on Marvel projects which are so busy. We also may not know what we need until a visual effect shows up, or we learn that something cut/designed isn’t working.
Ideally, we put together a recording wish list at the very start of the project. These are sounds we don’t have in the library, or have but want better recordings of/variations of, or textures & components to use for designing.

ME: Hi, um. Mr. Thanos, was it?
THANOS: That's correct.
ME: Could we just talk for a second here? I feel like if I'm going to die here, I'd appreciate having a clear understanding as to why.
THANOS: Hm. Well, I don't see why not.

#InfinityWar #Marvel #SpoilerAlert #Thanos
(I now pause for a half hour or so, specifically so @KolarRachel @eflind and others trying to avoid spoilers can mute this thread)
ME: So I understand that your lifelong goal is to curb overpopulation on a galactic / universal level.

#Thanos : Indeed.

ME: So I might disagree with your means, but rationally, I guess I can at least sort of see where you're coming from? Kind of? A little anyway.

LONG HISTORY THREAD

So I'm gonna own right off the bat that this isn't my original idea but something that I've seen brought up a lot of times in things like history TIL threads. With that out of the way, I do feel like brainstorming this a bit more.

First off, Spanish colonialism connected Western Europe to Africa (Northern African Moors and primarily Western African slaves) to the Americas (Gulf of Mexico, SW US down to Chile etc) to Asia (Marianas, Philippines and China). Other countries participated too but stay with me.
Their main goal was to connect Spain to the Spice Islands (Moluccas/Maluku) and convert people to Catholicism along the way. The papal bull Inter caetera issued in 1493 and Treaty of Tordesillas the next year "allowed" the division of the New World between Spain and Portugal.

I’m watching all of the @Marvel movies with @ThereseTheBeast, we are going in release order over the next 8 weeks leading up to #AvengersInfinityWar

Yesterday was Iron Man, we just started The Incredible Hulk now.

Updating this thread with thoughts and lists as we go #marvel
💭 Most shocking moment so far in the @Hulk 2008 is @LivTyler dating the dad from Modern Family.

Also as much as I like Edward Norton I’m just picturing @MarkRuffalo in my head and this movie is even better.
Putting @Hulk on pause to talk Iron Man.

1. I forgot how we used to talk about Marvel movies being “grounded” or “realistic” especially when it comes to color pallete and portrayal of characters or events.

The colors in Black Panther and Thor 3 have come a long way since 2008.
