“Scary Movie 4” director David Zucker talked to SCI FI Wire about the rules they’re following in creating their comic book movie spoof, Superhero!. Here’s a clip:
As for the superhero spoof film, it won’t feature a bizarre one-joke super power and won’t refer to any existing superheroes. “We’ll make up our own guy with our own super powers,” Zucker said. “It will be an original thing, but people will be comfortable in that superhero world. It can’t be a joke power, because you can’t sustain it. We have a lot of rules you have to follow. If it’s a joke power, it’s a joke one time and can’t continue to be funny. These will have to be real powers. I love the fact that Spider-Man got bitten by something and that gave him super powers. We’re watching every movie that came out, and it’s a genre that’s ripe. Look at all the similarities in … X-Men, Batman, Fantastic Four, Superman, all of them have common stories. I think there’s something funny there, too.”
