74 520x380 2 Super: New Image of Rainn Wilson

James Gunn, director of an awesome array films such as Lollilove and Slither as well as writing the screen play for the Dawn of the Dead remake has released an image of Rainn Wilson donning The Crimson Bolt costume for Gunn’s new movie Super. The movie is premiering at the Toronto Film Festival, which takes place from September 9th to 19th, and I could not be happier. While the plot sounds a little familiar because of it’s normal-guy-turns-into-superhero-to-cope-with-traumatic-event, James Gunn will find a way to make it as entertaining as possible.

Frank (Rainn Wilson) is an average guy who transforms himself into superhero The Crimson Bolt after his wife Sarah (Liv Tyler) hooks up with a smooth-talking drug dealer, Jacques (Kevin Bacon). What Frank lacks in superpowers, he makes up for with a trusty wrench in his one-man war on crime. Every superhero needs a sidekick, enter Libby (Ellen Page), a cute psychopath working at the local comic book store. Transforming into “Boltie,” Libby teams up with Frank to take Jacques down.
