I've been looking for this movie for years

I remember watching bits and pieces of this film when I was a kid. Every now and again I'll try to find it, but I can never manage to. My memory might be a bit flaky if some of these things don't add up, but I remember the movie was about a team of people with super powers or something, and it was very satirical. The scene I remember the most was a guy snaps his finger, and he creates fire. He's showing it off to the rest of his group and someone warns him about controlling it, and he brushes it off, resulting in him accidentally consuming himself in flames and burning to ash. I remember it not being as big of a deal as it should have been to everyone else, and they just carry on. The other thing I remember about this movie is the main character was a guy that seemed to not have any powers and he lies about it, eventually he believes he has the power to talk to god or something. I specifically remember a scene with him during a fight or disaster on a bridge, and a scene where he's falling in a car. I also remember something about a super villain in a very spy-movie-esque lair. There was also a girl that the main guy knew (I think it was a plot-twist where it was the love interest that turned out to be evil or something). That's basically all I remember, I can't for the life of me figure it out, and I've been looking ever since I was a kid. So if anyone has any idea, I'd appreciate it.

Hi, Z.S., do you remember the era of the movie?  I mean, about when was it made?  Also, do you remember any of the cast members or anything else, big or small, they were from?  I know how frustrating it is when you can't remember a movie, lol.  :)

I don't remember any of the actors or anything, from what I remember the movie was definitely pre-2000s but I don't remember anything more specific than that, that's just based off of how it looked and sounded.

This probably isn't your movie, but just in case: Chronicle (2012)
You said it was satirical, so perhaps on this list: Category:Superhero comedy films - Wikipedia
Hope this somehow helps!  :)

It's definitely not chronicle, but I went through the list and I think I might have found it. Reading the summary a lot of the scenes line up exactly how I remember, but I can't find mention of other scenes, so I'll just have to watch it and see. Regardless, thanks
