The first trailer for the upcoming Netflix superhero comedy movie Thunder Force has been released. The film stars actresses Melissa McCarthy and Octavia Spencer as two female superheroes, who’ve gained superpowers that include super strength and invisibility. As you can see below in the newly released trailer, it looks like the film will be a lot of laughs for fans of the genre. Especially because it looks like the film is loaded with references to past superhero gems.
Here’s the official plot synopsis for the upcoming superhero comedy…
“In a world terrorized by super-villains, one woman has developed the process to give superpowers to regular people. But when scientist Emily Stanton accidentally imbues her estranged best-friend with incredible abilities, the two women must become the first superhero team.
