First full-length trailer for Super: Rainn Wilson's DIY superhero is like Kick-Ass, only twice as cracked-out

The first theatrical trailer for Super is out, and it's looking like this year's Kick-Ass is twice as demented and messed up.


Partly because Rainn Wilson is just so preposterous as a DIY superhero, and the catchphrase, "Shut up, crime!" is total inspired lunacy. And Ellen Page is pure win as his kid sidekick. Also, it turns out that every other superhero movie this year does have to feature Kevin Bacon as an antagonist, it's the law. Keep your eyes open for a glimpse of Nathan Fillion as another big-time superhero, the Holy Roller.

Here's a couple clips from the film:

It's all from the broken mind of James Gunn, director of Slither. Can we see this film now, please? Super is in limited release April 1. Watch the trailer in HD over at Yahoo! Movies.
