We've been excited for Slither director James Gunn's DIY superhero comedy Super since we saw extended footage at Comic-Con. The movie's been described as a no-budget Watchmen, and in this preview, Ellen Page is a domino-masked female Rorschach.
Super is an ultra-violent superhero comedy by Slither's James Gunn that stars Rainn Wilson, Ellen Page, Kevin Bacon, and Nathan Fillion. They say it's "an effed up, low-rent Watchmen," and what we saw lived up to all that incredible promise.
