SHH! chatted with writer director Silvo DiSalvatore about his creation Black Cougar.

Black Cougar was a big family affair. I made a choice to spend my money on sets and costumes rather then professional actors. The movie was made for children, children don’t care if Bruce Willis or Mel Gibson is in a movie all children want to see is the Superhero. That’s why I went with spending money on sets and costumes. Anyhow having my family around was well worth it. The film was shot in New York. Mostly the Yonkers area where I live now. We shot for 4 1/2 months in the dead of winter. It was freezing. It was a 35mm (film) shoot, I wouldn’t shoot a movie with video unless I was Lucas. My thoughts on the current crop of superhero films. I myself enjoy movies so I would be bias on movies in general. Spider-Man, Hulk, Daredevil, X-Men, Punisher…I could go on and on. There’s one thing (most of these) movies I mentioned don’t have – is a protector of children. That’s what Black Cougar is all about and will always be. Black is Back. Black Cougar 2 is in preproduction now. It’s going to be insane. New villains, a lot of twist and an awesome cliff hanging ending.
