After being fired from Guardians of the Galaxy 3, James Gunn sets out to prove he doesn’t need marvel to break the box office. His new hit film Brightburn blends horror and superhero genres together into one unique film.
Brightburn stars actress Elizabeth Banks who discovers an extraterrestrial child (Jackson A. Dunn) that, unbeknownst to her, had just crash-landed from another planet- much like DC’s Superman. However, unlike superman, the child decides to use his powers for evil once he gets isolated by humanity.
This is a sinister twist to the classic superhero story and it will definitely be interesting to see just how it plays out. Brightburn will be produced by James Gunn, written by Mark Gunn and Brian Gunn and directed by David Yarovesky to make the movie that the studio are calling “a startling, subversive take on a radical new genre”.
