After adoring the genre, Kevin Smith now has a superhero film he can call his own. The filmmaker picked up Jordan Galland‘s Alter Egos to distribute on his Smodcast Pictures label and now the first full-length trailer has arrived today.

Even if you aren’t a fan of Smith’s films, it great to see him use his clout to get projects into the spotlight that may never have had a chance.
