Here at Comics Misremembered Podcast, we like to uncover hidden comics, movies, shows, etc. that you may not have heard about but are definitely worth your time.
This week, we are talking about the super hero movie called Super.
It was an independent movie that was written and directed by James Gunn (Guardians of the Galaxy 1 & 2) and it came out in 2010. It starts Rainn Wilson as Frank Darbo who becomes the vigilante super hero Crimson Bolt. Ellen Page stars as Libby who becomes Boltie, his youth side kick. Together they fight crime and try to rescue Frank’s wife, Sarah – played by Liv Tyler.
Here is the trailer of the movie…
In the podcast, I talk about the problems Super had on its initial release but how it is regarded as a cult movie. This is Jon’s first time seeing it and he thought it was great – very funny tempered with dramatic moments. I thought this movie was great back in 2010 and upon watching it again, it still holds up.
The other interesting fact about this movie that I forgot to mention in the podcast is that it ties into Brightburn (another movie we reviewed) and is part of the Brightburn universe if you watch the end credits.
