In the film, Earth is reeling from one too many superhero and super-villain clashes. These face-offs have led to billions of dollars in damages, and forced heroes with superpowers into hiding.

Rannazzisi, best known for his work on the FXX comedy series “The League,” plays SuperBat, who has lost his fortune, mansion, and the joy he once got from crime fighting. Rex (“Scary Movie” series) will appear as Dark Jokester, a baddie who wants to freeze the world. Michaels, a WWE superstar, will appear as SuperBat’s mentor and the man who whips him into shape. Smart, the star of “Road Trip” and “The Butterfly Effect,” takes on Jean Wonder, SuperBat’s wife and Dark Jokester’s kidnap victim. In order to fight Dark Jokester, SuperBat reunites the Avengers of Justice, a group with members such as Beaverine, El Capitan South America, and ThorBacca. Pretty apparent which films are being parodied here.
