‘Super’ Poster!

The first poster has just arrived from the upcoming superhero comedy Super, which hits theaters nationwide on April 1. Take a look at this new one-sheet below, which features star Rainn Wilson as the Crimson Bolt.

In the outlandish dark comedy Super, James Gunn has created what is perhaps the definitive take on self-reflexive superheroes.
