Superb: The Original Teen Superhero is a 2022 American superhero film released by 20th Century Studios and Smashup Productions. This is also 20th Century's first collaboration with Village Roadshow Pictures since Don't Say a Word (2001). The film is directed by Sam Fell and Paul Feig, with the screenplay by of Jonathan Aibel and Glenn Berger.
