From origin stories to climactic final showdowns, the Hollywood editors behind the biggest superhero franchises are masters at managing story arcs that both build suspense and create surprise against a backdrop of big action set pieces; all the while weaving in the humor and humanity that lifts their characters off the scripted page and keeps audiences coming back for more. These film editors will share with the SXSW audience their insight, experience and techniques for using their craft to elevate stories from movies into epics.
