TheSidekickIt’s not about the superheroes. It’s all about their sidekicks.

San Diego Comic-Con International 2013 premiered “The Sidekick,” a short film about an aging sidekick who seeks a new purpose in life.

Latino-Review participated in a roundtable discussion with the cast of the short film before their presentation to the attendees of the convention.

The participants included actors Rob Benedict, Lizzy Caplan, Richard Speight Jr., Josh Meyers, Jordan Peele and director Michael J. Weithorn.

The discussion topics range from how they were approached for this project; hopes for a full TV show or expanded series; the costumes and even stunt work (or lack of it).

Check out the interviews below.

Here is the “The Sidekick” trailer:
