Actor Zac Efron has compared the cast of his upcoming movie “Baywatch” to superheroes of the “Avengers”. The 29-year-old actor, who plays Matt Brody; a young former Olympian who has been enlisted into the group as part of a kind of community service deal, said the characters bear much resemblance to comic book teams, reported Contactmusic.

“It is like ‘The Avengers’ on the beach. Everyone’s got their own set of unique skills which is really cool and it’s fun to explore. Baywatch is a very specific group of lifeguards that watch Emerald Bay and they do a lot of saves,” Efron said.

The film also features Priyanka Chopra, Alexandra Daddario and Kelly Rohrbach, and cameos from the original stars of the 90s TV show David Hasselhoff and Pamela Anderson. It is set to release in the US on May 25.
