From Adam Egypt Mortimer, director of last year's breakout hit Daniel Isn't Real, and SpectreVision, the production company behind the aforementioned film and recent favorites like Mandy and Color Out of Space, comes Archenemy, an upcoming film that presents a darker and grittier approach to the superhero genre.
The film casts Joe Manganiello ("True Blood", Deathstroke) as Max Fist, a hero from another dimension who has landed on Earth and been stripped of his powers.
"Max Fist is a hero from another dimension who fell through time and space and landed on Earth. No one believes his stories except for a young kid named Hamster. Together they fight drug dealers and their boss ‘The Manager’ to help take back their city."
Glenn Howerton, Skylan Brooks, Zolee Griggs, and Joseph D. Reitman also star.
Judging by the trailer, Archenemy looks like a real treat for fans of Mandy and even Joe Begos' excellent VFW.
The film is expected to release in 2021.
