TSR Blog: Which Summer Superhero Movie Has the Most Oscar Power?

Thor, X-Men: First Class, Green Lantern, Captain America: The First Avenger … we have superheros coming. The other day I went to the movies (Hanna if you must know) and saw trailers for three superhero movies coming out in the next three months.
