Mum has been the word as to the look of James Gunn’s upcoming superhero comedy Super starring Rainn Wilson and Ellen Page. We know what a few of the costumes look like, and we know who is in the flick. But as to the tone and visual style, we haven’t gotten many clues. Until Now.
Just about one week after the deal was struck for IFC Films to purchase distribution rights for the film, the very first clip has surfaced showing off both Wilson and Page in their full superhero garb, and it looks pretty cool.
The clip may not be 100% SFW due to language, but it’s surely 100% hilarious. The premise is a bit simple. After his wife falls under the influence of a drug dealer, an everyday guy transforms himself into Crimson Bolt, a superhero with the best intentions, though he lacks for heroic skills. Include a psychotic sidekick (Ellen Page) and you’ve got the full scope.
Check out the first clip from the film after the jump, and be sure to keep your eyes open as we see more from the film and even get a release date from IFC Film’s Midnight banner head.
