Flashback Thursday: Watch Joker’s Vendetta: Original Comic Book Script Reading

Flashback to October 2010 where we performed an original comic book script from the Batman universe called JOKER’S VENDETTA at the old National Film Board Cinemas in downtown Toronto.

Watch the reading here:


The Joker is on a rampage, murdering members of the Maroni crime family, and no one knows why. Batman and Commissioner Gordon want to find crime boss Salvatore Maroni before the Joker does, but along the way learn that there may be another player pulling the Joker’s strings.


BATMAN – Alex Gomez
JOKER – Patrick Twaddle
THE PENGUIN – Stephen Flett
TWO FACE – Michael Scott
ALFRED – Peter Nelson
TALIA HEAD – Nicole Grainger
VARIOUS – Ty Andrassy
VARIOUS – Ryan Jeffrey
VARIOUS – David Kinsman
NARRATOR – Hayley Toane

There is a bittersweet feeling watching this reading. For one, the National Film Board closed down in 2012 and the WILDsound Festival had to find new headquarters after beginning the festival at the company. But it’s good to see the live performance and the solid screenplay written by Sean Ballantyne, who funny enough, later began working for WILDsound.

Submit your Comic Book/Superhero script today:

Unfortunately we have not showcased many Comic Book/Superhero scripts at our festival. There have been a few scripts, plus 2 short fan films we’ve showcased, but not nearly enough according to the present marketplace. Agents and Producers want to see examples from writers of fan scripts from the comic universe because that’s the genre that they are making these days, but we have just not received scripts that have been ready for performance in this genre.

If you have a solid Superhero script, either fan/spec or original, send it to our festival for full feedback, plus get it performed by our roster of professional actors and showcased for the world to see. If you click on the above YouTube video, you’ll see that it has been viewed over 20,000 times! People will watch it and we’re the festival to help you get it seen.
