Maybe you’ve seen them: Multiple viral videos starring Dremon Cooper, a dance teacher from Washington, D.C., who goes by the name “Super Bitch.” One person in particular — who just so happens to be an Oscar-winning film director — has most definitely seen these awe-inspiring, often hilarious vids: Lee Daniels.

In his videos, “Super Bitch” sports thigh-high, pink stiletto boots and practices his ass-kicking moves or actually puts them to use on “criminals” who he pretends to beat down.

As for what’s next, could a gay superhero film be in his future?

Dremon Cooper, whose “Super Bitch” character has taken social media by storm.

Lee Daniels posted a video on Instagram last night, and in it he appeared alongside Dremon Cooper:

Lee Daniels: OK, so y’all remember maybe 10, 12 years ago I said my dream was to make a gay superhero film? Well, guess what? It’s about to happen.

Dremon Cooper: Super Bitch is here, with the Lee Daniels.

Lee Daniels: Dreams do come true. And I found my superhero. And America — world — get ready.

Dremon Cooper: I’m about to give y’all a combo.

The caption on Daniels’ post reads, “10 years ago folks thought I was crazy when I said I wanted to make a gay superhero flick…. It’s not my next one… but it’s in the pipeline.”

“Super Bitch” also posted the video to Instagram, captioning it, “Dreams really do come true!! I had the pleasure of meeting the one and only @theoriginalbigdaddy [Lee Daniels]. You’re an amazing man filled with great ideas. I can wait to work with you!”

We have no real details on the “what / why / when / how” of this gay superhero film, but you can rest assured we’ll keep you updated when we know more.

Daniels, himself the openly gay director behind the films Precious and The Butler and TV series Empire, has indeed been vocal about wanting to produce and direct the first mainstream film about a gay superhero.
