I've mentioned about the U. of Minnesota professor Jim Kakalios a couple of times. First was his book on the Physics of Superheroes. The second time was a couple of days ago when he was referred to by the Science and Entertainment Exchange program to the director of the movie "Watchman".
You can now view an interview with him in this YouTube video. You get to get some insight into his interest and why he decided to teach physics using superheroes.
Would you like someone like this as your physics instructor? I don't see why not.
