The first clip from director James Gunn’s indie comic movie Super has been released and it features “The Office” star Rainn Wilson like you’ve never seen him before. He plays a makeshift super hero who calls himself Crimson Bolt, and goes around town punishing criminals in his own unique way. Take a look at him in action…
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.
As you can tell from the clip, Crimson Bolt is not your average hero. He’s borderline insane and has absolutely no limits. He’s not Batman, or Superman, and there’s no internal code that keeps him from killing or in this case hitting a woman in the face with a wrench. We love the fact that he said “You can get it too” right before he slapped her. Oh, Crimson what are we going to do with you?
