Tuesday, March 8, 2016

The ultimate gladiator match is about to hit the big screen, Batman v Superman!  How did this super-heroic match-up make it to film in the first place?  American comic books originated in 1933, but gained popularity after Superman's debut in 1938. On this edition of HearSay, Cathy Lewis hosts a panel of comic professionals, including the granddaughter of DC Comic founder, Major Malcolm Wheeler-Nicholson. Comic writer and historian Nicky Wheeler-Nicholson joins us along with Michael Uslan, executive producer of the new Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice film, Greg Thompson owner of Local Heroes comic book store in Norfolk, and Aaron Smolinski, the actor who has been known as Superman all of his life, having played baby Superman in the 1978 Christopher Reeve film. So, tell us who your hero is, Batman or Superman, and join us for this super conversation and find out how you can see an exclusive screening of the new movie!
