Comic-Con is all about superheroes, but this year, DC Comics has a slightly different take on it.

Vanessa Hudgens and the cast of the upcoming NBC series Powerless -- a workplace comedy about regular people in an insurance company in a world where superheroes exist -- spoke to ET's Kevin Frazier in a Facebook Live chat about what excites them about this spin on the genre.

"It's something that hasn't really been explored much," Hudgens explained. "The attention's always on the superheroes ... What about the people who are trying to live their lives, and do their jobs who are affected by it?"

Earlier this year, the 27-year-old actress wowed audiences as Rizzo on Fox's Grease: Live!. She told Frazier that she loves to sing, and would love to do another musical given the good opportunity.

"I sing on set non-stop," Hudgens shared. "It's not a good day until I've sung... for me! Not for anyone else."

"I'm definitely sure at some point, when the right project comes along," she added as to whether there's another musical in her future, before her Powerless co-star Ron Funches hilariously stepped up to the plate.

"Think Hamilton," Hudgens laughed.

We'd go to see that!

Work aside, we had to ask Hudgens about her recent Italian vacation, where she looked absolutely gorgeous, and gave us major relaxation jealousy in the snaps she posted to Instagram from the trip.
