About a day ago a new trailer dropped for a James Gunn produced film that has the Superman origin taking a dark turn. Of course, this is nothing new. Back in 1933 the creators of the big red “S”, Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster, had initially envisioned him as a bad guy in a short story titled The Reign Of The Super-Man.
Recently, we saw Zack Snyder choose (poorly) to play on the idea that Superman is more feared rather than admired by the citizens of this world because of what he might do if he went rogue and not for what he had done which was save everybody’s ass in the DCEU films. Anyway, this movie does look intriguing even without naming names and calling it what it is. Please check out the trailer for the evil Superboy/Superman movie, Brightburn.
What if a child from another world crash-landed on Earth, but instead of becoming a hero to mankind, he proved to be something far more sinister? With Brightburn, the visionary filmmaker of Guardians of the Galaxy and Slither presents a startling, subversive take on a radical new genre: superhero horror.
Brightburn opens in theaters 05/24/19
