Rob Benedict, Ron Livingston and Lizzy Caplan star in The Sidekick which will be playing at Comic-Con. The short film is directed by Michael J. Weithorn and will premiere at SDCC on 18th July.
The Sidekick centers on a 40-year-old career sidekick, Max McCabe (Benedict), now past his prime in the fast-paced world of superhero-dom. When he is unceremoniously fired by his boss, Captain Wonder (Livingston), Max has no choice but to somehow find a place for himself in the regular world.
There are plans for The Sidekick to become a digital or TV series.
