X-Men, Superman and many other superheroes are misunderstood as villains in their stories. But in the horror film BrightBurn, there may be a good reason to be scared of the superpowered civillian.
The trailer released Saturday for the Sony film, which is co-produced byJames Gunn, shows all the tropes of Superman you may remember: including a child falling down from the sky and being adopted by new parents (Elizabeth Banks and David Denman).
However the superpowers this child develops appear to come with violent tendencies instead of an urge to become a responsible savior for society.
BrightBurn is scheduled to come to theaters on May 24, 2019 in the UK, and on May 27, 2019 in the US. An Australia release date is not yet available.
