Avengers Assemble!

Critical Perspectives on the Marvel Cinematic Universe

Terence McSweeney

McSweeney explores the cinematic and televisual branches of the Marvel Cinematic Universe from a diverse range of critical perspectives. Beginning with Iron Man, the book considers them both as embodiments of the changing blockbuster film and as affective cultural artifacts that are immersed in the turbulent political climate of their era.


The Directors’ Cuts series focuses on the work of many of the most significant contemporary international filmmakers. In considering the production and reception of the most important works of directors – from Clint Eastwood and the Coen Brothers to Agnès Varda and Béla Tarr, and all points between – this series sheds light upon the creative dynamics of world cinema.
