In the end of Cinema, Volume One: The Movement Image writes the following about the demise of the movement image:
Certainly people continue to make [movement image] films: the greatest commercial successes always take that route, but the soul of cinema no longer does. The soul of the cinema demands increasing thought even if thought begins by undoing the systems of actions, perceptions, and affections on which the cinema had fed up to that point. We hardly believe any longer that a global situation can give rise to an action which is capable of modifying it—no more than we believe that an action can force a situation to disclose itself, even partially.
It seems to me that Deleuze's picture of the movement image lingering on might be one way to make sense of the superhero film.
