First look: Defendor

Superhero hilarity in the spirit of Kick-Ass

phnp5rsvypmusp-1A trailer for Defendor has gone up online and shows Woody Harrelson to be engaging in plenty of superhero spoofing. In the film Harrelson plays Arthur Poppington, a regular guy with some very irregular delusions of being a superhero. Adopting the persona of Defendor, Poppington spends his evenings roaming the streets hunting down his nemesis Captain Industry.

The film will be debuting at the Toronto Film Festival this year and marks actor Peter Stebbings first foray into filmmaking, with him both writing and directing the movie. Despite sounding distinctly similar to Kick-Ass, this fun feature displays some serious underdog credentials in its promo.
