I hadn’t heard of upcoming superhero comedy Alter Egos until today, but now that I’ve seen the trailer, it’s definitely on my radar. Comic-lover Kevin Smith apparently felt strongly about it too, as his own Smodcast Pictures is set to distribute the picture.
The plot sounds rather ridiculous: protagonist Brendan is shocked to discover that his girlfriend has been having an affair… with his own alter ego. At the same time, superheroes everywhere seem to be losing public support. Hilarity will ensue I’m sure, as Brendan deals with the repercussions of his alter ego’s actions.
Check out the trailer below, and let us know what you think! The very indie Alter Egos opens to a limited theatrical run on October 19th, and will hit VOD on November 20th.
Alter Egos takes place in a world in which superheroes have recently lost all government funding and public support. It centers on an underappreciated superhero who jeopardizes a dangerous mission with his own emotional crisis — his girlfriend is cheating on him with his alter ego.
