If things aren't working out with the MCU, it looks like horror is happy to have him. Director David Yarovesky, working from a script by Mark and Brian Gunn (James' brother and cousin, respectively), has created a horror film centered on an evil superhero that may bear a slight resemblance to the Man of Steel.
Now with the second trailer - featuring a cast including Elizabeth Banks, David Denman, and Jackson A. Dunn - released today, fans can start seeing how closely the film will spin the classic origin story.
Check it out:
After a rehash of the alien-to-Earth origin story, the symbol-scrawling kid shows off his powers and gets weird fast. Parental conflict and plenty of bullying gives the new trailer the vibe of a revenge horror flick that just happens to have some superpowers in the mix. And yeah, it's gonna be gory.
Brightburn will burn up the screen on May 24.
