Part I Paving the Way to Posthumanism: The Precursors 2 From DelGuat to ScarJo William Brown In this chapter, I want to offer an overview of how/why Gilles Deleuze and Félix Guattari have been influential on posthumanist thought before looking at how posthumanism is increasingly operating as a framework through which to consider film (and the media more generally) and before, in turn, looking at how Deleuze and Guattari influence such posthumanist readings of film. Finally, I should like briefly to offer a reading of various films from 2013 to 2014 that feature Scarlett Johansson in order to draw out some of the seeming contradictions surrounding posthumanism, namely that posthumanism remains a very human (if not humanist) way of thinking and, perhaps, of being in, or, better, with, the world.

This is a singular existence against, or in antagonism, with a virtual existence. There is another use of the term ‘singularity’ from science – the technological singularity. This is the possibility of a future point that occurs during a phase of unprecedented technological progress, sometime after the creation of a superintelligence. This event of intelligence explosion could see the machine surpass human intellect and improve its design into far greater intelligences. The intelligence of man would be left far behind.

In a scenario mirrored in many SF cinema of the contemporary age, this posthuman anxiety was the remedy of humanism: ‘the aliens were always defeated, frequently by a uniquely “human” quality’ (Badmington 2000, 7). The films of Niccol function in such a way. They are, of course, restricted by genre conventions, audience expectations, filmic limitations, the political economy of Hollywood and so on. They share a concern around the drive towards a sense of human perfectibility – the genetically perfect, the perfect virtual world, the perfect virtual actress and thus towards the eradication of otherness – the ‘in-valid’, the time-poor, the ambiguities of the real world and real people.
