Netflix has just unveiled the trailer for Thunder Force, a comedy starring superheroines Melissa McCarthy and Octavia Spencer. To discover from April 9.
Forget about Marvel, Iron Man, Captain America and the rest. Melissa McCarthy and Octavia Spencer are coming to our screens and they’re all set to smash some villain. Netflix has just unveiled the trailer for Thunder Force (not to be confused with video games), a superhero comedy… like no other. Two former best friends must team up when one of them discovers a formula that gives humans special abilities: Lydia has super strength and Emily can become invisible. From the top of their 50 years, the two actresses string together gags and a few stunts to save the city. They give the answer to Jason Bateman, Bobby Cannavale (the villain) and Pom Klementieff (seen in Guardians of the Galaxy 2).

Result on April 9 on Netflix.
