The Superhero is the set genre for Paper 1 of the WJEC Film Studies specification changes from September 2011. This study day is designed to give students and teachers an introduction to the genre. The Superhero Movie has its origins in the comic book giving a rich heritage of characters and stories to draw from, but can mean it won’t be taken seriously. However, there is much to consider in the Superhero genre especially as it is very popular at this point in time. The day will give an overview of how the genre has developed over the last 30 years and provide interactive opportunities to consider generic differences and similarities. There will be a full screening of a superhero movie, teacher’s notes and follow-up worksheets for the classroom.
