From the Advisor: Dog Days of Summer: Part 2

The last dog-days edition saw me in reading, researching and reach out mode. Now, I’m in serious semester prep mode.  

What does that mean?

I’m keeping an eye on Summer 2023 internship programs with early deadlines, scheduling events (sneak preview below) and chasing down fall opportunities.

From the heroes like Batman and Wolverine to the terrifying villains such as Joker and Thanos, superhero movies have proven to be box office juggernauts, with the likes of Marvel and DC films leading the way. However, the artists who bring them to life, notably the actors who inhabit them, are often unappreciated at award shows. To celebrate the return of the San Diego Comic-Con on July 20, Variety ranks the 50 best superhero performances, in movies, of the last 50 years (post-1972).
