Brightburn 2 is a Possibility, According to James Gunn

brightburn

Like Superman, was born on another world and came to , landing in the state of , where he is adopted by childless parents. Brightburn is no dark commentary about the way power corrupts, however. Brandon: Back at the office, you said something about talking to the Sheriff? The story did not include parts that we should have seen. Their son may be an incurable sociopath, and 2. In Superman comics, an economically struggling Kansas couple, the Kents, in the midst of longing for a child, find a crashed alien spacecraft on their property. First of all, James Gunn did not direct this movie.

Think something along the lines of The Omen or The Shining but with a superhero theme. Brandon pushes his father into a built-in shelf cabinet, breaking not just the cabinet, but the wall on the other side. His parents act completely clueless halfway through the movie. He's a goddamn animal is what he is. What if Superman became evil is what I would sum up Brightburn in a nutshell. It subverts the superhero narrative into something infinitely darker. Noah: You're lucky if that's all I do.

The actors do a really good job, and I really wish they had more time to sell us on the material. Principal: We are taking action. And what I think is that James Gunn had this interesting concept for this character and all the pieces were there. This is a big problem. However, it is also bland and dull. The execution, however, is hit or miss.

Brandon sticks his hand in a whirring lawnmower blade—breaking the blade but leaving his own hand unscathed. The movie follows the same beats as the classic Superman origin story at first, showing an alien boy named Brandon Jackson A. However, it does have some very creative and nasty kills, it has good effects, it is well-acted and it is well-shot. Tagline was suggesting it would be an interesting take on the reversal of superman premise. The first film is very much an origin story, so a sequel would presumably follow Brandon at a later age, in full-blown evil superhero mode. Last night, your uncle Noah. But no matter direction the next Brightburn chooses to go , it will definitely show how Brandon is the very opposite of everything that Superman represents and is right to be feared.

Brightburn Review

Erica: Did you see my daughter's hand? Tori: I will never turn against our son. But Brandon does suffer a bloody wound on his hand when he comes into contact with some of the metal from his old spacecraft. But instead of defending the innocent and protecting the world, he uses his powers have his revenge on all the people who have wronged him. That's an interesting and cool idea. The sequel will presumably take longer to make than its predecessor anyway again, see the whole evil Justice League setup , so a 2021-2022 release date seems like the more realistic best case scenario. I'm not sure if there were scenes that got cut or what, but there's practically no depth.

But I promise, I won't take long. And finally, the creative decision to add Billie Eillish' 'bad guy' was genius. I'm supposed to update the sheriff tomorrow and I have to be honest with him. I have to do my job. But both Tori and Kyle lie to their son on occasion, too. Brandon's poor parents Elizabeth Banks and David Denman have two parallel issues to deal with: 1. There are seemingly no segway between scenes in the opening act, all the scenes just seem random and pieced together.

. And to me that feels lazy and the entire movie feels half baked. This movie is just amazing and the acting from everyone was great. Kyle: Where were you Wednesday night when Caitlyn's mom went missing? Like the disturbed alien child at its center, this movie feels bad to its very marrow. The Kansas of 1938, as seen in Superman comics, was ravaged by the Depression and nearly destroyed by a series of droughts, but Kal-El managed to emerge from that destitute place as a symbol of hope in a dark time. The only thing that I found comfort in this film is the eerily composed music and the cinematography. Brandon: Aunt Merilee was helping me with my homework.

It's easy to picture, with the right amount of adolescent cynicism, Superman as a bitter murderer. Some comic book fans even jokingly referred to the movie as an Elseworlds tale or the Superman horror movie that Zack Snyder wanted to make but failed to do so in and. Tori: I know exactly what you meant. Because the Kents are so relentlessly decent, the child, named Clark, becomes a costumed warrior for Truth, Justice, and the American Way.
