Beyond the recent Batman vs. Superman trailer, we still don't know a lot about the upcoming superhero rumble. Particularly, why are Superman and Batman even fighting each other? It might seem weird to seek superhero movie guidance from an astrophysicist, but when that astrophysicist is Neil deGrasse Tyson, whose voice you heard in the aforementioned trailer, you take notice. Especially when he starts describing the Batman vs. Superman plot and the main crux of the beef between these two superheroes.
The inspiring national treasure that is Georgia Congressman John Lewis appeared last night on The Daily Show to talk to Jon Stewart about March Book Two's release as well as his experiences in the Civil Rights movement of the 50s and 60s.
This year marks the 50th anniversary of the march in Selma, in which Lewis participated and received a fractured skull for his troubles. As the last year has shown through events such as the killing of Michael Brown and the subsequent treatment of protesters in Ferguson, Missouri, racism and injustice are still very present in American society, and the March books by Lewis, Andrew Aydin, and Nate Powell, couldn't be more timely or more necessary.
