What would happen if Kal-El, Krypton’s last son, instead of growing up to become a legendary superhero, had become a sadistic megalomaniac killer?That’s the question director David Yarovesky used as a reference for his first feature film in Hollywood, by the hand of producer James Gunn known for his directorial work in Guardians of the Galaxy.
