Dial H For Hero Becomes Live Action Comedy #4Hero From Machinima, DC And A Smartphone App


Dial H For Hero was a classic DC comic book series, in which ordinary people could dial in brand new superheroes to deal with problems, from a telephone dialler. Revived a number of times, most recently with China Mieville for the New 52 relaunch as Dial H, It is now being reinvented once again. As a live action comedy drama from Machinima.

And instead of a dialler? An app….

A modern adaptation of DC Comics’ cult-favorite classic “Dial H For Hero”, #4Hero is a live-action, VFX-heavy action-comedy about a young woman named Nellie Tribble who is quietly desperate to make her mark on the world, but wholly unprepared to do so. Nellie stumbles upon a life-altering smartphone app that allows her to instantly become a Super Hero for a short amount of time. The problem is her super powers are dictated by whatever is trending on social media at that moment, and they are always only semi-useful.

Any chance of an appearance by Boy Chimney?
