“It's not something you see here often,” Harris said. “If you were in L.A., you might expect it. But Oklahoma City making a superhero movie — it's going to be great.”
A campaign for the film has been started at indiegogo.com. It features a test clip and ways people can donate for the film.
“We launched it on Friday (June 23),” Roberts said. “We've raised almost $5,000 in four days.”
The campaign will help to pay for special effects, basic production fees and actors.
The film will feature an Oklahoma cast and crew, including Noah Crawford, an Oklahoma native who is in Los Angeles filming a Nickelodeon show, “How to Rock.”
Crawford is used to playing a superhero. He voiced the lead character in the cartoon “The Next Avengers: Heroes of Tomorrow.”
A prequel comic to the film was created by Marvel Comics artist Javier Saltares. It is available on the film's campaign website. The comic book also serves as a promotional tool for the movie.
“What better way to promote the movie than through a comic book?” Roberts said. “It's a unique way of doing a press kit.”
The movie is set to be filmed in August and plans are for distribution in the spring to coincide with high school graduation.
