What do Bai Ling, tight spandex undies, gallons of fake blood, evil monsters from outer space, and a blue mutant ape have in common? They are all playing a significant role in the upcoming anthology feature “ABCs of Superheroes” – trailer out now. The film presents us with a superhero, a group of superheroes, or a supervillain for each letter of the alphabet.
“ABCs of Superheroes” is the first feature length film for German directors Jens Holzheuer and Oliver Tietgen and producer René Wiesner. They started their own anthology around their entry for the competition of acclaimed horror movie “ABCs of Death 2”. Their entry titled “M is for Menstruation” revolves around a female superhero who has very peculiar and special female superpower. ‘The feedback was so awesome that we absolutely had to invent more crazy superheroes’, director Oliver Tietgen says. ‘Of course our heroes are nastier and more twisted than the heroes in the comics we used to read and love as kids’, director Jens Holzheuer adds. The now released trailer will give you an idea of what to expect.
Even though the film is still shooting it already features guest stars such as Bai Ling, Uwe Boll, and German youtuber and Dacascos Kung Fu disciple Flying Uwe. ‘We are really pleased that we were able to shoot with Bai Ling in our hometown Hamburg. We are currently talking to more very interesting guest stars, so stay tuned!’ producer Renè Wiesner announces. After its completion in summer the film will be sent to the festival circuit.
