View Full Version : Seeking Marvel Superheroes for Feature Film

I need you!

I need people who have dressed up as (mostly Marvel) superheroes and have their own costumes - people who can appear as these superheroes in a feature film starring a popular Marvel heroine.

We are filming in Los Angeles, California.

Spider-man in particular is a major character we need, but it's not a Spider-man film.

My name is Garrett Gilchrist. I'm a 25-year-old filmmaker with seven features I've directed and five I haven't. My last film was a drama called Gods of Los Angeles - orangecow.org/godsofla

Here, a few review quotes:

"Paul Thomas Anderson goes to college. ... both
emotionally and intellectually engaging and leaves the
viewer with the complete satisfaction that only a
fully developed story and uniquely three-dimensional
characters can deliver ..." - B-independent.com.

"An interesting film with lots of great characters
that you'll find yourself pulling for and hoping that
things work out for them so they can all find
happiness. It's definitely a movie worth seeing." -
Rogue Cinema

"Gilchrist's approach is inspiring." - Film Threat

Anyway, for my next film, I've decided to do something along the lines of Batman: Dead End, creating a fanfilm about the adventures of a favorite Marvel superheroine. I won't say who, but if you read comics you'll probably guess by the end of this message.

(Actually, you can find out who and read the entire script at my website: ffrevolution.com/InvisionBoard )

We have finished casting and are shooting beginning in January.

She's a slightly offbeat character, and to give this film some color, I wanted to include guest appearances by other characters in the Marvel universe (and even the DC universe). Because this film is low-budget (and the heroine's costume very simple) I can't really create or buy that many superhero costumes myself.

So I'm casting for people who can provide their own costumes, people who have created Marvel superhero costumes for a comic convention or Halloween or wherever ..... People who when costumed look like the spitting image of that character and could play that character in a feature film. Or people who are willing to take the challenge and create a costume to appear in this film.

This is going to be an amazing project and you'll enjoy being a part of it.

I am looking for any Marvel characters, any at all, but here are a few I'm particularly interested in.

Blonde Phantom
Captain America
Scarlet Witch
(and all Avengers)
All X-Men
The Incredible Hulk
Morbius the Living Vampire
Silver Surfer
Awesome Andy
Xemnu the Titan
Spider-Woman 2 (Julia Carpenter)
Alred the Butler
All Fantastic Four
Forbush Man

That list might give you some clues as to what the movie is and what I'm doing ... and you might guess what other characters I could use here ....

If this sounds like fun to you, let me know.

I have a Scarlet Witch costume...too bad I live pretty damn far from LA. :P

I see you live in Canada. Too bad, we could really use a Scarlet Witch. Don't suppose you have your own video camera? Or don't suppose we could borrow the costume?

Ah well. It's a "gypsy" version and that's not quite what we're going for anyway. Too bad though.

Come on L.A. and San Diego people, I really need superheroes here, we're shooting soon.
