Abstract [en]

This chapter argues that the destruction and defense of metropolitan spaces in the alien invasion film is intimately related to post-9/11 geopolitical concerns. The chapter’s main focus is on the racial and sexual imageries that direct and help fuel these concerns. With this in mind, it considers how The Avengers (2012) creates urban spaces in which ritualized performances of idealized white masculinity occur in front of a dual audience, one existing within the film itself and one outside of it. The essay thus suggests that these invaded and bravely defended metropolitan territories constitute white spaces in the sense that they are sites where a particular conception of whiteness is produced through the spectacular performance of violence.
