Super Movie trailerFans of last year's DIY-superhero flick, Kick-Ass will certainly be reminded of that film when watching the trailer for James Gunn's Super. After all, it's about a loser who is inspired to transform himself into a home-made-costumed superhero.

But the Slither filmmaker promises Super to have a more un-polished, indie feel and that this trailer doesn't come close to conveying the perverseness of the film, saying "it’s darker & deeper & more effed up than we can show in two minutes." Yeah, the trailer doesn't show that, so we'll have to take his word for it.

Super is slated to assault theaters later this year on April 1.

Check out the trailer below or head over to Apple to check it out in hi-res.
