2. Fan-Powered Creations: Communities Take the Lead

Fans are becoming creators, using platforms like YouTube and TikTok to share their own stories, art, and theories. This trend empowers communities to shape and expand their favorite universes. Whether it’s fan art, original videos, or spin-off stories, fan creativity is driving the conversation and keeping beloved franchises alive and vibrant.

3. Crossover Universes: Stories That Span Multiple Platforms

More and more, stories are being told across different media. You might start with a comic book, continue with a video game, and then see the story unfold in a TV series. The Marvel Cinematic Universe is a prime example, with its interconnected films. This trend allows fans to engage with their favorite characters and worlds in multiple ways, deepening their connection to the stories they love.

4. Virtual Conventions: The New Way to Gather
