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. Fitting in with other low-budget superhero flicks, this one follows a group of heroes who are down and out after losing government funding and public support. 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.

Alter Egos opens this Friday in limited release and hits VOD on November 20th.
