I didn't know this was a thing until today. It looks really interesting to me. I tried to search for this half a dozen times but I keep getting an XML error or something. I didnt see it in the last 3 pages.

Yeah I some how got this mixed up with "prodigy" that comes out soon. I kept thinking damn, I thought it was more superhero based.

They should just make a full length movie for 'the flying man'

Red Son, kind of. But I’m not a comic book nerd so I don’t read any of these things.

Yeah it's not groundbreaking original, but I like Gunn and it appeals to the comic nerd in me so I'll go see it.

Elizabeth Banks and Roy from the office, that just screams talent on a budget. Looks cool though, i'll check it out maybe probably.

I have an idea how to make this not a total ripeoff, and be fairly clever.


Go full on with the parody flip.

After he goes on a rampage, and declares himself king of the world. An Alien invasion of peaceful superpowered aliens show up, and are confused why their emissary went on a rampage. Turns out he hit his head and got braindamage in the crash landing.

Reverse Goku/Irongiant him. Instead of alien invader that hit his head, and fights to save humans from the other invaders. The aliens were good guys, and hitting his head turned him into a monster.

But then if you follow the DBZ formula, then the good aliens become evil also to fit in with not-Goku

Just saw this preview. Not big into "true" horror, so the parody aspect and being a straight rip of Superman has perked my interests. Trails off Batfleck's mental attitude about the insane amd scary the power level of Superman is to the general populace.
I wonder if in the process of murdering everyone in this one, does he stop to sexually assault Lana Lang? Is his mom gonna have to kill him with a weapon/kryptonite from his spaceship? Does Bruce Wayne exist in this world? Is he equally fucked?
