Anyone else heard of this upcoming movie called Brightburn? It looks like it's going to be literal answer to the question, "What if Superman grew up and became fully evil instead of good."
It's being billed as more of a "Superman-esque horror" movie than a strict superhero movie. The set up for the movie is practically identical to the Superman myth: Alien baby crash lands on Earth and is adopted by a Kent-like couple. The difference comes as he grows up and deals with being ostracized/bullied by his classmates. This is where the Superman-styled story switches gears and becomes more like a Carrie-clone. The young boy starts to terrorize the town using his powers against those people who were tormenting him.
I figure if this story is handled properly it could more be more like what the fall of Anakin Skywalker SHOULD have been but wasn't in the Star Wars movies. Imagine a Superman-like character who's driven to the "Dark Side" by the fear and misunderstanding of the people around him. It really sounds pretty awesome... again if they handle it right.
There's been a couple of trailers for this movie so far. I suppose we'll see how it goes:
