Marvel may be slowly moving away from Netflix, but that doesn’t mean Netflix is getting completely out of the superhero business. According to our new report from THR, the streaming service has picked up a hot new superhero comedy that has stars such as Daisy Ridley, Josh Gad, and Luke Evans attached.

The film is called Super-Normal, and is being described as a character-driven, subversive take on the genre, which is perfect for today’s superhero-laden ecosystem.

Actor Josh Gad does not just serve as actor on the film, but also had a hand in helping to develop the story. He worked together with brothers Aaron and Jordan Kendell, who went on to actually write the script for the flick. The duo had had previous luck with Disney’s Moana. Luke Evans also had a hand in the early process, and was reportedly in the room with Josh Gad as they made the rounds at the studios to pitch the project.

Taking on the role of producer for this film is none other than Dan Lin, who has produced such films as Stephen King’s IT and Death Note, the latter of which was also made for Netflix.

This sounds like a fun and exciting new project for Netflix, and continues in their strategy of working with hot A-list talent. Let’s hope that it continues its overall hot streak in the coming years, and can really keep on pushing out great, unique content.
