Melissa McCarthy and Octavia Spencer are the newest superheroines in 'Thunder Force'

The newest superhero film comes not from Marvel or DC, but from the unlikely onscreen duo of Melissa McCarthy and Octavia Spencer. Written and directed by Ben Falcone, McCarthy's husband, Thunder Force mixes crime-fighting with McCarthy's brand of slapstick comedy.

The cast, which also includes Pom Klementieff and Bobby Cannavale in villainous roles, recently spoke with Yahoo Entertainment.

"I want people to see these two women like ordinary women who are standing up and fighting for the right thing," McCarthy said.

Spencer added that the role is a sort of dream come true for her. "I loved superheroes growing up and I can also say that I also wanted to be a superhero," she said.
