Former pro wrestler turned writer, director, actor and producer, Marcus Nel-Jamal Hamm, will be releasing his anticipated short film, The Black League of Superheroes – available to watch on April 30th through the film’s website and via YouTube.
Marvel and DC enthusiasts will enjoy following the story of a young hero, Miles Morales Spiderman, who discovers that an intentional injustice was covered up as an accident. To prevent this from happening again, he takes advantage of his gifts and “borrows” a powerful glove to summon his elders: Spawn, Blade and Black Panther. The band of superheroes must then decide how to best address the tragedy that has unfolded before them.
With the current political climate and the ascent of the Black Lives Matter movement, Marcus was inspired to create a film where Black individuals can see themselves reflected as superheroes.
“Being able to create positive Black images is extremely important in times like this, and it’s also important for Black people who are being victimized and brutalized from mischaracterizations to regain a sense of empowerment,” Marcus explains.
Among the aforementioned superheroes, audiences will also see fan favorites including Superman, Storm, and Bayne.
