With superhero movies everywhere these days, it was only a matter of time before we started to see some films about caped crusaders who weren’t quite so heroic as guys like Batman. The latest feature to take a look at masked avengers in a slightly different light is Alter Egos – and we’ve got a new trailer for the comedy for your perusal.
Directed by Jordan Galland (who brought us the very cool Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are Undead), Alter Egos follows a superhero who needs to be saved from his own emotional crisis. While that sounds a little heavy, believe us when we tell you the whole thing is played for laughs. The film takes place in a version of our world where superheroes are real, but have lost their government funding – meaning it’s way harder to make a living at the gig than it used to be.
We don’t want to spoil the trailer for you, but the film looks quirky and fun. Kris Lemche, Brooke Nevin, Joey Kern, Christine Evangelista, John Ventimiglia and Danny Masterson star in the film, which doesn’t have a set release date yet.
