    Boy Wonder trailer

    I know what you're thinking, but no, this is not a film about Batman's brightly-clad teen sidekick. Boy Wonder is another in a recent spate of real-life superhero movies. Joining such films as Defendor, Kick-Ass, and Super, you won't find any ultrapowered uber-men here, only regular human beings. From first-time writer/director Michael Morrissey, the film stars Caleb Steinmeyer (True Blood, Lost), Tracy Middendorf (Boardwalk Empire), and James Russo (Public Enemies, Hawaii Five-0).

    Boy Wonder looks like it is more of a darkly psychological take on what drives a young man to go out at night and fight crime and the effects that that kind of violence has on him. The trailer is almost impenetrable, more style than exposition. However, the clip about choreographing the fight scenes for the film intrigues.

    In this riveting and gritty psychological-thriller, 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.
