This Is The Wrench Wielding Superhero We Want: Dwight In Tights!S

Rainn Wilson joins Ellen Page and Liv Tyler in Super, a superhero comedy film. Slither writer James Gunn penned the script, and will direct this slightly dark super tale.

Super begins production in December, and with Gunn attached to the wheel and this cock-eyed premise, we're ready to see Dwight bash some heads in:

Wilson, who last worked with Page in "Juno," plays an average guy who takes on the pseudo-superhero alter ego of the Crimson Bolt, after watching his wife (Tyler) fall under the spell of a charming drug dealer. Lacking super powers, he compensates by swinging a trusty wrench.
