If the first picture of Sharlto Copley didn’t make me skeptical of the newest attempt to make Powers into a TV show did, these new images definitely did the trick.
Along with news that the first trailer for the show, Playstation also announced today that Powers would be unveiling the first trailer for the series during the panel that is set to be attended by castmembers: Susan Heyward, Noah Taylor, Olesya Rulin, Logan Browning, and Eddie Izzard and the series creator, Brian Michael Bendis.
I was never really a big reader of Powers, but even just looking at these images, they seem to have more of a cheese factor than what we got out of the second Kick-Ass movie
Powers, an edgy dramatic series from Sony Pictures Television and inspired by the graphic novel series of the same name, follows the lives of two homicide detectives, Christian Walker (Sharlto Copley) and Deena Pilgrim (Susan Heyward), who are assigned to investigate cases involving people with extraordinary abilities, referred to as “Powers.” Set amidst today’s paparazzi culture, Powers asks the questions, what if the world was full of superheroes who aren’t actually heroic at all? What if all that power was just one more excuse for mischief, mayhem, murder, and endorsement deals? Enter the men and women of the Powers Division, the only people brave enough to go up against the overpaid, commercialized, superhumans who glide through the sky imposing their power over the crowds below who both worship and fear them.
