See 1st trailer for Kevin Smith's indie superhero comedy flick

Kevin Smith is putting his money where his mouth is by rallying support to distribute an all-new indie take on the superhero genre, Alter Egos. And we've got the first trailer in all its weird, funky, superpowered glory.

After a summer of big-name blockbuster stars putting on the cape and tights, it seems only fitting that the man who asked Stan Lee whether the Thing had orange rocks for man parts would be the one to foster new talent in what has probably been the hottest film genre of the last few decades.

While it's certainly exciting that Alter Egos will explore the mental disconnect that comes of being two people at once in the midst of tough political and economical times, it's more that we're hearing from truly new voices on the subject that makes this the kind of film to throw viewer support behind.

Check out the first trailer below and tell us what you think!
