Rain Willson, Ellen Page, and Liv Tyler to Star in Super

Ellen, Rainn, and Liv Make For a Super Trio

Rainn Wilson is about to step out of The Office and into comic book territory. In the upcoming comedy Super, Wilson will play an average Joe who pretends to be a superhero to win his wife (Liv Tyler) back from a drug dealer. Calling himself Crimson Bolt, Wilson's character uses a wrench to make up for what he lacks in powers.

The film will be written and directed by James Gunn, whose previous credits include the Scooby Doo movies and Slither. We'll have to wait to hear more about Ellen Page's role, but as a Juno fan, I can't wait to see her team up with Wilson again. Wilson also seems like the perfect choice as a lovable loser, though I kinda hope he stays more on the side of regular guy rather than Dwight Shrute with a cape and a weapon. Yikes.
