Comic book and graphic novel adaptations have been a staple in film and television for 75 years, both artistically and financially successful. Acclaimed filmmakers such as Ryan Coogler, Patty Jenkins, and Christopher Nolan have adapted comic books for film. The Marvel Cinematic Universe is the most successful film franchise in history; The Walking Dead is one of the most popular shows; Riverdale won the Teen Choice Drama TV Show Award; and Black Panther influenced national discourse and was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Picture. This panel of industry insiders will discuss the high profile and profitable relationship between comic books and the screen.
Co-Presented by the Hanson FilmTV Institute and the UA School of Theatre, Film & Television, this event is made possible with support from Film Tucson, a division of Visit Tucson.
