One of the many panels we covered at San Diego Comic-Con was James Gunn’s Super. It’s a small superhero movie that feature big talents like Ellen Page, Liv Tyler, Nathan Fillion, and Rainn Wilson who plays the main character.

Super centers on regular guy who takes on a superhero alter ego when his wife falls under the spell of a notorious drug dealer played by Kevin Bacon. And by spell we mean heroin, coke, crack, whatever drug he has in his arsenal. After she becomes a full on druggie he’s pushed to the edge and decides to take matters into his own hands.

If you want to know more about this film you should definitely read our coverage of the Super Comic-Con panel. It’s an in-depth breakdown of our first look at the footage and it really gives you an idea of what you can expect from the film. Wilson hits women in the head with blunt objects — wrenches to be exact. Yeah, it’s going to be that kind of a movie.
