Brightburn

So the trailer for James Gunn's new superhero movie just dropped today and it's interesting...Pretty much it's literally "if Clark Kent as a kid was psycho and used his powers for evil"

That looks adorable.

I mean, I don't want to spend money on it, but I would like to eventually see it on TV or maybe rent it from a library.

To be fair Superboy Prime wasn't insane originally. He went insane because of the isolation the 4 of them were suffering from.

Okay, that final moment where he rips open the freezer door and is standing away then rushes in, creepy shit! Also totally hilarious cause Banks' husband in the film is David Denman who was previously Sam Scott, aka Jason's dad in the 2017 PR Movie. So now we know; Sam divorced his wife, and ended up meeting a quieter, mentally saner Rita and settling down in the country for a peaceful life. And then got a crazy alien baby and shit went weird. Welp.

But no, movie seems like it could be neat. I think it'll have to sell me on the kid and why he acts like a crazy horror movie villain. If it's just cause his powers somehow make him crazy...I don't know. I feel like it'll need more for me. But damn if I don't love Banks alone, I'll definitely be checking out further trailers at least.

So they're out to show the world that snapping Zod's neck really was the more compassionate thing to do in comparison?

Or like the Plutonian from Irredeemable, who was written as a deconstruction of Superman.

It's a neat idea, I guess. But, like a lot of horror, the concept defeats the whole point of the story. If this kid actually is Kryptonian (or something close to it), there is literally nothing anyone can do to stop that bodycount until Kansas winds up as a smoking crater.

That is where the story of what they shown us so far comes into play. There is the kid and something inside of him. It is kinda like Reign in Supergirl.

Or Injustice Superman. Or any other story where Superman was evil just so the writers could masturbate their "Batman is the greatest.", "Batman is always right" fetish.

You know, if kid Bruce Wayne showed up with a piece of Kryptonite in hand, that'd be a twist.

On the one hand haven't there already been a billion "What if Superman was evil?" stories but at the same time this actually looks interesting.

Kind of hope this is like Little Evil. Scary premise, but hilarious execution.

yeah, saw a couple of posts on tumblr saying that this is a evil perception of autistic people. I don't know, for something that is essentially a parody of superman (which in that case the Good superman does out weighs the bad this movie does) I don't necessarily need to be thought of too much. I mean not everything is something needing an deep look into it.

Considering that this movie really only has one real possible ending, that the mother kills the son, I don't think some should really be making the whole autism point.

On a side note.

I would be 100% okay if this started some horror superhero parody of other films.
