Proportionate Justice Is for Lily-Livered Yellow Bellies

The idea for James Gunn’s Super — another regular person turned superhero — felt a little more original before a series of these movies, like Kick-Ass and Defendor hit theaters (or, DVD, in the case of the latter). But then again, this is James Gunn, director of Slither, veteran of Troma, and the guy behind the “PG Porn” series. What you’re going to get is a little different, and from the looks of this trailer — and advanced word about Ellen Page’s nutjob character — that direction will skew toward average people dressing up as superheroes to unleash their inner sociopath. It also appears, from this spectacular clip, that Rainn Wilson’s superhero character is not familiar with proportionate punishment.
