If you are a superhero fan, you have probably fantasized what it's like to to perform some of the heroic feats these masked marvels are known for. But what is the reality of what our heroes do? The Academy in Beverly Hills will be presenting an evening "that will explore the 'real' physics behind many of your favorite superheroes by connecting the actual science to the superhero fantasy."
Hosted by Adam Weiner, The Science of Hollywood Superheroes will take a look at some of the biggest Comic Book movies of all time including scenes from "Superman" (1978), "Spider-Man" (2002), "Hulk" (2003), "Spider-Man 3" (2007), "Hancock" (2008), "Iron Man" (2008), "The Dark Knight " (2008), "X-Men: First Class" (2011) and "Thor" (2011) and discuss the science facts.
