New Stills from Defendor

A series of new stills for writer-director Peter Stebbings dark superhero "dramedy," Defendor, have just hit the Internet, courtesy of MTV.
Defendor tells the story of Arthur Poppington (played by Woody Harrelson), a wannabe superhero who thinks he can thwart Captain Industry, a (possible) drug and weapons dealer. Poppington makes his own costume and becomes "Defendor," venturing into the night to fight crime with grit, determination, marbles, and lime juice.
Defendor premiered at the Toronto Film Festival and opened in Canada last week. It will have only a limited theatrical run in the U.S. before being released on DVD in April. Kat Dennings, Sandra Oh, and Elias Koteas also star.
