Illustrated Talk: 90 mins + 15 min Q&A followed by a screening of UNBREAKABLE (12)
Though it was the depression era which saw the dawn of the superhero, first in pulp comic books, quickly followed by a run of low-budget serialised Saturday matinees, it would be the ‘70s and ‘80s where the superhero film really transformed into the blockbuster we now recognise. This Midday Masterclass will explore game-changing feature films like SUPERMAN (1978) and BATMAN (1989) and show how the film world’s costumed hero feature has evolved from the cheaply produced war time serials of the 1940s into the modern billion-dollar movie franchise industry we know today, thanks largely to a host of DC comic adaptations and of course, the mighty Marvel Cinematic Universe.
