New 'Hancock' Trailer, Hancock

May 2, 2008

One of the largest oversights in comic book history is that, despite writers and artists creating some of the most memorable, enduring characters in pop culture, no one ever bothered making a superhero whose power was acting exactly like Will Smith. We can hardly blame them. Who could have anticipated the success of The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air, or the limitless potential of its young star? But sadly, it has meant that Will Smith has never been granted the opportunity to act in a blockbuster superhero movie, and get all sassy up in it. Writer Vincent Ngo and director Peter Berg have corrected the blunder with Hancock, in which Smith plays a down-and-out superhero with the powers of flight, super-strength, super-invulnerability, and super-acting-like-Will Smith. He may also have the power to make people say his name a ridiculous number of times, if this new trailer is any indication.
