Okay, sorry for the misleading title. This, of course, is not the story of Superman/Clark Kent. BRIGHTBURN does, however, play like an evil Superman story. From Producer James Gunn (GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY; Twitter) BRIGHTBURN is the story of a young boy from another planet, taken in by a farm-dwelling couple. What starts out as the story of a seemingly normal kid turns into a story about a kid who possesses dark superpowers. Per the official synopsis:
“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.”
Starring Elizabeth Banks (literally everything in the last 10 years) and David Denman (TVs THE OFFICE) BRIGHTBURN is set for release on May 24, 2019.
