No Ordinary Hero: The SuperDeafy Movie


SuperDeafy must reveal the man behind the cape to find true love and inspire a young deaf boy to believe in himself. The movie follows the evolution of this unique hero. A beloved character and role model, SuperDeafy has a worldwide following. He has been turned into t-shirts, posters and dolls—and now a movie. This film marks the first time in cinematic history that a SAG commercial feature film is being produced exclusively by deaf executive producers and directed by a deaf director. The film will be 100 percent open captioned at every screening.

Dove Review

Tony is deaf and plays a superhero on TV, wanting to help those in the hearing world understand his world. Jacob is an eight-year-old who looks up to the superhero played by Tony because he also is deaf. Each of them have their problems: Tony thinks that his dreams are out of reach and Jacob cannot connect with his father because he wants Jacob to be “normal.”

It is hard for the hearing world to understand what it’s like to not be able to comprehend things going on around you when you are deaf, or the difficult time a deaf person has communicating how they feel. This is a wonderful tale about bringing the two worlds together. With subtitles and translations, everyone can enjoy this movie whether hearing impaired or not.

One of the great lessons in this story is that no matter what or who you are, you have to believe in yourself and anything is possible. We are proud to award “No Ordinary Hero: The SuperDeafy Movie” with the Dove “Family-Approved” Seal for all ages.
