Abstract

Although paving the continuity road towards 'The Avengers' (Joss Whedon, 2012), 'CA:TFA' is as interesting for the ways in which it differs from the previous four Marvel Cinematic Universe films as for its similiarities and connections with them. Thus, we can identity the notions of 'mould-breaking' and originality at various levels within the text, despite the reputation of the burgeoning MCU for connectivity and transmedia sharing.
