Y’all remember that scene from Batman v Superman?
You know, where Batman becomes paranoid about Superman’s potential to ‘wipe out the human race’, and thus brands him as humanity’s enemy?
Well, ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’ director James Gunn just took that ‘What If’ scenario and turned it into one of the most promising superhero movies in the last decade.
Titled ‘Brightburn’, the film gives a horror element to the usual Clark Kent origin story. It essentially has the same backstory (alien baby crashlands on earth and is raised by adoptive parents) with the added twist that asks: What if Superman was a murdering psychopath?
