xfAdmittedly, when I first heard of the precariously titled ‘BOY WONDER’, I was skeptical on many fronts. The first being that I didn’t foresee a film by such a ‘Batmanesque’ title as ‘BOY WONDER’ to be a dark, twisted, pulse pounding vigalante film with plenty of violence to go around. However, after getting a chance to see the film this past week I have to say that I joined the ranks of the many critics who have handed the Indie such high praise. The film, directed by Michael Morrissey, premiered today at The Con, and inside you can get our exclusive interview with Michael as well as stars Caleb Steinmeyer (‘LOST’), and Zulay Henao (‘FEAR ITSELF’, ‘S.DARKO’)! Read on for the skinny!
WRITTEN/DIRECTED BY: Michael Morrissey
‘A young Brooklyn boy witnesses the brutal murder of his mother and grows up obsessed with finding her killer. Thus begins his life as a quiet, straight-A student by day and a self-appointed hero at night. But what is a real hero? And who decides what is right or wrong? As the boundaries blur, Sean’s dual life wears on his psyche and his two worlds careen dangerously close to colliding. Like a graphic novel you can’t put down, Boy Wonder challenges morality, distorting perceptions of what is right and what is justified, as it races to its shocking conclusion.’
Everyone here at Graphic Content would like to thank Michael, Caleb, and Zulay for being so gracious with us and taking the time out of their insanely busy Saturday schedule to speak with us. ‘BOY WONDER’ will be available sometime later this year from Boy Wonder Productions. Also, be sure to keep an eye out for our official review of the film later this week, and be sure to keep up with all of our live coverage from the Chicago Comic and Entertainment Expo all weekend long via the official Graphic Content page and Twitter!
