Sporting a costume which seems to be a cross between The Flash and hockey equipment you got at a flea market, Rainn Wilson stars in Super.
Super is the latest film to show regular people taking their comic book obsession a tad too far — the most recent, of course, being Kick-Ass and Defendor. I throughly enjoyed the twisted, Kick-Ass, but was a bit lukewarm on Defendor. But anyone who’s seen The Office knows that Wilson has comedic chops to spare, so hopefully that will elevate Super to something fantastic.
Ellen Page is also along for the ride. Being from Halifax, I know I should probably be more supportive, but I’m just so indifferent to Page. She’s not bad, but I don’t think she ever adds anything to films she’s in. She’s like the actress equivalent of soy.
Super gets released April 1st.
