Reimagining Genre in Cinema

October 17-18, 2019

Whether because of digital technologies or other cultural shifts, many traditional cinematic forms, formulas, and categories seem increasingly to be in flux or mixed; this seems particularly true of notions of genre.  Of course, genre has always been subject to mixture, to being contaminated by its others, but today, new genre-redefining forms and mixtures seem to be proliferating. At the same time, this very proliferation sometimes seems to demand increasingly specific generic categorizations and subdivisions.  

Parallel Universes: Remaking Superheroes in Film and Popular Media

Twenty-first century film and media have seen a rise not only in remakes and ‘re-imaginings’, but also in transmedia adaptations, works based in nostalgic callbacks, fan-written versions of media, and genre-bending remixes. While a wider body of work exists on transmedia storytelling and adaptation, contemporary superhero remakes and re-adaptations are still a largely unexplored subject, even as interest in the remake phenomenon continues to grow. The history of superheroes – and their supervillain counterparts – is rich in re-adaptations and remakes. This process seems intrinsic to the superhero’s textual and cultural journey, as it is re-shaped and re-moulded, from comics to film and other media forms.

Coming of age and identity quests are often intertwined in stories, be it in novels, comics, or films. However, not every identity quest happens to teenagers. Adults, too, are on a constant search for who they are and/ or why they are. These questions are tackled and examined in the 2019 Netflix TV show Umbrella Academy as well as in the eponymous comic books series from 2008/2009. The comic series consist of 3 volumes, “Apocalypse Suite,” “Dallas,” and “Hotel Oblivion.”
