NEW SUPERHERO FILM: BRIGHTBURN

I just watched this trailer about a very dark superhero film called Brightburn. It is a horror version of the classical Superman story. Like Superman, this kid came from the sky and was raised by a couple of farmers. However, unlike Superman, this kid never learned how to be human and he failed to learn the difference between right or wrong. Also, to add to the dark nature of the film, the kid was regularly drawing alien symbols that resembled the Brand of Sacrifice from the anime/manga Berserk. Instead of a superhero, this kid becomes a superhuman serial killer. So far, this kid’s powers consist of flight, super strength, possibly telekinesis, and heat vision, but there are bound to be more powers at his disposal. I look forward to this film and see this dark new look at the classical Superman story.
