Bolstering part of Netflix’s international releases in July 2021 will be a French superhero movie How I Became a Super Hero which seems like a mix between The Incredibles, The Boys, and Jupiter’s Legacy.
The movie is adapted from the novel by Gérald Bronner and first premiered at the Deauville Film Festival back in September 2020. The movie was sold to Netflix. How I Became a Super Hero will be available on Netflix worldwide on July 9, 2021.
It’s one of a number of high-profile superhero titles to come out of Europe for Netflix as of late. The 8-episode Zero Italian series was released earlier in the year.
Parisian superheroes are now part of everyday life. They compete for fame, often at any cost. When a dangerous new drug is introduced to Paris, mortals suddenly develop their own superpowers. Aided by two former superheros, Monte Carlo and Callista, it’s up to Paris detectives Moreau and Schaltzmann to dismantle the emerging drug empire.
