What if Superman and Michael Myers had a baby?
Following its premiere at the Comic-Con Experience in Brazil, a trailer for the James Gunn-produced BrightBurn hit the internet—and it’s unlike anything we’ve ever seen. While Sony, Marvel, and DC have been promising us more horror-adjacent superhero movies for years, this could actually be the first, perfect amalgamation of comic-book fantasy and the darkest aspects of our beloved genre.
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?
BrightBurn was directed by David Yarovesky (TheHive) from a screenplay penned by Mark Gunn and Brian Gunn. The film stars Elizabeth Banks (The Hunger Games, Pitch Perfect), David Denman (13Hours, Power Rangers), Jackson A. Dunn (Shameless), Matt Jones (Mom, Home) and Meredith Hagner (Younger, Set it Up). James Gunn produces, with executive producersMark Gunn, Brian Gunn, Dan Clifton, Simon Hatt, and Nic Crawley.
Look for BrightBurn in US theaters beginning May 24th,2019.
