As one of the biggest and most successful film franchises of all time, Marvel's approach to developing an interconnected film universe has seemingly revolutionized the way superhero films are being made. Creating a shared universe with elements that crossover and interconnect individual films (culminating in perhaps the ultimate "team-up" film, The Avengers), this approach to filmmaking changed the way characters and storylines are developed. Marvel's foresight has resulted in a long-term plan for the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU), which at this point consists of three distinct phases, each of which is to conclude with an Avengers film.

Modern Language Studies, the journal of the Northeast Modern Language Association, is seeking reviews for the summer 2013 issue.
I am especially interested in reviews of primary sources (including scholarly editions, contemporary literature, art, film, comic books, visual and popular culture), pedagogical works, and hypertext publications. However, reviews are no longer restricted to these categories.
Graduate students are welcome to contribute to the journal. Please submit your review electronically (as a Word attachment) to Randy Robertson, Reviews Editor of MLS, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
