Check out Rainn Wilson and Liv Tyler in these new pics from James Gunn's Super

Rainn Wilson as a superhero! Bears, beets, Battlestar Galactica!

What's all this for? Well, it's for a little film from James Gunn titled, SUPER. Wilson stars as Frank D'Arbo, a man who decides to transform himself into the Crimson Bolt after his wife (Liv Tyler) falls under the influence of a drug dealer. The film also stars Ellen Page, Kevin Bacon, and Nathan Fillion.

Today Gunn posted some pictures as well as video on his site from the film. There's a picture of Tyler getting sexy with Wilson and one of Wilson as the Crimson Bolt. The videos contain talk from the panel as well and the other contains the question of whether Dwight or Mal would win in a fight. A great question.

Here's what Gunn had to say about the film:

"As many of you know, we went to Comic-Con this weekend and showed the first ever footage from SUPER. As reported on nearly every fan site, the crowd ate it up! The panel consisted of me, Rainn Wilson, Ellen Page, Liv Tyler, Nathan Fillion, Michael Rooker, and producers Ted Hope and Miranda Bailey. I was so excited that everyone changed their plans around to make it to the Con after showing them a cut of the film last week. SUPER is a VERY low-budget film made as a labor of love by all involved – as I said at the panel, everyone on the film, from me, to all of the actors, to the composer Tyler Bates, are all working on the film for the lowest amount the guilds allow. Yes, I know, there have been other films that are superficially the same as ours, movies about real people becoming superheroes – including some very good ones. But ours is the first that, although funny, focuses first and foremost on the emotions of the characters involved. It is a dark, gritty, violent, no-hold-barred independent film that is, I promise you, not at all what you expect."

Extra Tidbit: When I saw the mask on his chest, I immediately thought of Space Ghost.
