Academy Sets 'Science Of Superheroes'

Beverly Hills, CA – Ever wonder if it’s possible to build a suit like Iron Man’s? What would you have to do to become a real-life Batman? Do you think gamma radiation could really create an Incredible Hulk? The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences will answer these questions and more in “The Science of Hollywood Superheroes,” on Wednesday, August 15, at 7:30 p.m. at the Samuel Goldwyn Theater in Beverly Hills. The event will feature film clips and conversations with filmmakers, including animation supervisor Spencer Cook (“Spider-Man” and “Spider-Man 3”) and screenwriter Zack Stentz (“Thor,” “X-Men: First Class”). Scientists will also be on hand to offer their unique perspectives on the intersection between superhero fiction and current scientific research. See guest complete list on http://www.oscars.org.
