Kevin Smith is currently raising funds in order to to distribute his all-new indie version of the super-hero genre, ALTER EGOS. Check out the first official trailer for the flick below!
The comedy is directed by Jordan Galland and stars Kris Lemche, Brooke Nevin, Joey Kern, Danny Masterson, John Ventimiglia, Kristina Klebe, Adam LeFevre. The plot follows an under-appreciated superhero, at a time when superheroes have lost government funding and all public support.
In a synopsis by Interview Magazine:
"Alter Egos inhabits a fantasy world where superheroes are a dime a dozen. If you have the powers, as lead supers Fridge (Kris Lemche), and C-Thru (Joey Kern), do, then, well, you can practice them for good, as long as you follow the guidelines, or at least some of them. Quite obviously, this is a parody of parodies and flips the superhero genre on its head. Like Superman, Fridge is dorky in his human clothes. Unlike Superman, it's not because he has to do so to keep his identity under wraps—more like he uses his superhero garb to explore different facets of his personality, as evidenced by the title. Somewhere along the storyline, he must tackle the fact that his girlfriend loves his superhero identity more than his unmasked self, and, naturally, face his nemesis, the man who killed his mom and dad—although he really doesn't want to."
