Joe Manganiello looks like he’s trading in his Deathstroke outfit for an original superhero flick as the trailer for his new gritty and dark comic book film Archenemy has just gone online courtesy of Variety and Comic Con@Home. Manganiello looks all bad ass here and we have your first look below!
Joe Manganiello plays Max Fist, who claims he’s a hero from another dimension who has somehow landed on Earth and been stripped of his powers. In other superhero movies, that might be the start of a rousing and upbeat redemption arc. In the hands of the producers of the gonzo art horror film “Mandy,” it’s something else entirely.
Instead of treating him like a powerful champion, no one believes Max’s claims — except for a teenager named Hamster (Skylan Brooks, “The Darkest Minds”) and his sister Indigo (Zolee Griggs, “Adam Ruins Everything”). The siblings convince Max to help them take out a local drug gang, where Max’s abilities are put to a violent and harrowing test.
Archenemy was helmed by Adam Egypt Mortimer who also penned the script and Manganiello and his brother Nick also produced the film via their 3:59 production banner.
We have a wait unfortunately as the film isn’t due to hit until next year but you can view the first look below!
