Everybody’s talking about Shawn Michaels possibly stepping back into the ring, and although it remains to be seen if that will happen, HBK will be stepping onto the set of “Avengers of Justice: Super Farce.”
Variety is reporting that Michaels has joined the cast alongside Amy Smart, Stephen Rannazzisi, Simon Rex, and the movie will be a spoof of Marvel and “Star Wars” films. The synopsis for the film reads as follows:
“Earth is reeling from one too many superhero and super-villain clashes. These face-offs have led to billions of dollars in damages, and forced heroes with superpowers into hiding. Rannazzisi, best known for his work on the FXX comedy series “The League,” plays SuperBat, who has lost his fortune, mansion, and the joy he once got from crime fighting. Rex will appear as Dark Jokester, a baddie who wants to freeze the world. Michaels, a WWE superstar, will appear as SuperBat’s mentor and the man who whips him into shape. Smart, the star of “Road Trip” and “The Butterfly Effect,” takes on Jean Wonder, SuperBat’s wife and Dark Jokester’s kidnap victim. In order to fight Dark Jokester, SuperBat reunites the Avengers of Justice, a group with members such as Beaverine, El Capitan South America, and ThorBacca.”
Shawn Michaels has been retired since WrestleMania 26, but there are rumors of his possible return making the rounds on the internet. You can get more on that below.
