1. Sánchez Román, María Elisenda. Superhéroes en la pantalla de la guerra contra el terror. Un estudio semiótico-discursivo a las trilogías cinematográficas Iron Man y The Dark Knight.

Degree: Departament de Filologia Romànica, 2016, Universitat de Barcelona

This study is a discursive analysis of two cinematographic trilogies produced between the years 2005-2013: The Dark Knight (Nolan, 2005, 2008, 2012) and Iron Man (Favreau 2008, 2010; Black, 2013). Both were produced at the height of 'The War on Terror', which encompasses the post 9-11 administration of President George W. Bush. In all of the movie industry's history, the highest profit yielding superhero has been none other than Batman, whose trilogy The Dark Knight is based on the comic miniseries Batman Year One (1988) by Frank Miller—the darkest rendition of the cult superhero-. As for Iron Man, this persona has been well received by the public. The movie Iron Man 3 is one of the top five highest grossing films of all time on the world market. It is without a doubt, the representation par excellence of the superhero in liquid times. Both trilogies permeate the mediascape of the past few years as cultural practices in which the image of the superhero stands out as a hegemonic system of representation justifying or legitimating an interventionist foreign policy under the guise of security. The war unfolds on the big screen and it is in the art of representation that this thesis takes place. Superheroes as icons of American popular culture have been studied at length. However, this study, inspired by the works of Stuart Hall on "radical contextualism" and on "conjuncturalism", an essential component to the problem statement, emphasizes analysis from a semiotic- discursive and interdisciplinary perspective and builds on the work done by Julieta Haidar.
