Writing the Superhero Movie Webinar contest

Ben Affleck Batman vs. Superman

Dear screenwriters,

It’s been quite a day for superhero news: we got a first look at Ben Affleck as Batman (pic above) from Zack Snyder and David Goyer’s upcoming “Batman vs. Superman” movie, the news broke about Channing Tatum starring as Gambit in an upcoming X-Men spinoff movie, and ABC announced another Marvel comics-inspired show, “Agent Carter,” will join its Marvel’s Agents of Shield in the 2014-2015 TV season.

    I took this webinar and it’s great. Very informative and motivating. I finally have a plan in dusting off that old superhero screenplay and rewriting it. This webinar gave me a lot of new ideas on creating a compelling character. I highly recommend it to anyone dreaming of creating their own superhero franchise. There are lots of webinars and tutorials out there, but none are geared towards superhero subject-matter. Dan Calvisi’s webinar fills this niche. It’s chock full of good information delivered in an entertaining way.
