Another superhero parody on the way

After’ Superhero movie’ and ‘My Super Ex Girlfirend’ it seems Hollywood has not quite tired of taking the piss out of the superhero genre. It has  just been announced that a new film called ‘Super’ has been green lit and feature the tale of an average guy with now powers who becomes the Crimson Bolt.

Bolt, like his mild-manned alter ego, has no powers just a handy wrench with which to dispense justice.

he movie will star Rainn Wilson, Ellen Page and Liv Tyler and is set to begin production in December.

I don’t know it seems maybe Kick Ass has started a little trend with Woody Harrelson ‘Defendor’ and now this.

At the moment I’m not particularly excited about the premise but of course I could laugh my ass when I see the trailer, so I’ll wait and see.

  1. It looks like Variety may have oversold the “spoof comedy” nature of the film, or rather undersold the serious side.

    Gunn posted about it at his own blog, and at least as far as he’s concerned, it’s a film that’s going to be played straight but with comedy elements – maybe more ‘Juno’ than ‘Euro Trip’.

    But then, he would say that, right? We’ll see, I guess!

    (The ‘Defendor’ trailer I saw looked a lot more bleak than funny, tbh… are they going for a black-black comedy feel, rather than the glossy-black comedy of something like ‘Kick-Ass’, maybe?)
