Brightburn Clip Pits the Indestructible Antihero Against a Lawn Mower
Sony Pictures has released a brand new clip of BrightBurn . Last year, we learned that the director of Guardians of the Galaxy James Gunn, was producing a very mysterious horror film. Eventually, we discovered that his little project was actually a horrible interpretation of a Superman character, who essentially asked if Superman was hurt rather than good. This clip alone is enough for anyone to wonder how bad such a situation could become, and this is not for the crazy.
The clip sees the child in question who clearly discovers that he actually has powers. that people do not have. We see an overturned lawn mower, blades always running at full speed. The kid slowly approaches the lawn mower and, without any dialogue, his thinking is clear. "what if I put my hand in it?" To avoid spoiling, there are surely many people who will watch this clip and scream on the screen as it unfolds. Safe to say, it's confusing. It's the alternative reality with a great person in which no one would ever want to live.
Although Sony can not in any way characterize this character as Superman or attach it to the DC universe, it is very clear that the tone of this movie was "Superman, but bad". At a time when superhero films dominate the landscape, this seems to be a fascinating way to approach gender from a unique angle. The universe of DC is lucky. Superman is a force for good. It would be so easy for him not to be. It's the flip side of the coin. James Gunn is immersed in both horror films and comics because he is behind such films as Dawn of the Dead and Slither as well that Guardians . movies for Marvel. He feels like the right guy to help make something like this a reality.
