In a world of super-villains, evil schemes and global domination, someone has to take out the trash. Welcome to the world of Henchmen, third class.
When Lester (Middleditch), a fresh-faced recruit, joins the Union of Evil, he is assigned to a motley crew of blue-collar workers led by fallen henchmen Hank. But when Lester accidentally steals a super villain’s ultimate weapon, Hank must break his risk-nothing code to save the boy he’s befriended, even if it means becoming the one thing he has always avoided: a hero.
The cast for the film includes Thomas Middleditch (Godzilla: King of the Monsters), James Marsden (Sonic the Hedgehog), Rosario Dawson (The Mandalorian), Alfred Molina (Harley Quinn), Will Sasso (Irresistible), Nathan Fillion (The Suicide Squad), Rob Riggle (The War with Grandpa), Jane Krakowski (The Willoughbys), Craig Robinson (Timmy Failure: Mistakes Were Made) and Bobcat Goldthwait (Skylanders Academy).
