Lee Daniels is finally fulfilling his dream of making an openly gay superhero movie. The Precious director shared a post to Instagram where he confirmed the project and introduced the lead actor who will play SuperBitch.

"Y'all remember maybe 10, 12 years ago I said my dream was to make a gay superhero film?" he said. "Dreams do come true. And I found my superhero. America, world, get ready."

SuperBitch seemed equally excited about the project, writing in the caption that it was a dream to meet Daniels. 

"You’re an amazing man filled with great ideas," he wrote. "I can wait to work with you!"

The actor and comedian who created the character of SuperBitch is already a bit Instagram-famous for his clips of a cartwheeling and twirling crimefighter dressed in a silver belly shirt and thigh-high hot pink boots.

The Southeast DC native has filmed a bunch of DIY scenes where he fabulously beats up homophobes and other villains to the sounds of over-the-top electric guitars. 

If you've ever wanted to see someone take a kicking from a man in pink heels to the sounds of the Power Rangers soundtrack, you're in luck.


And he definitely has the skills to do his own stunts. Watch him land a full backflip in heels to the screams of astounded (and twerking) on-lookers.
