At NYCC this past weekend, Sony debuted the first trailer for their upcoming debut original series, Powers. Based on the critically claimed comic series by Brian Michael Bendis and Michael Avon Oeming, Sharlto Copley stars as Christian Walker, a former superhero who has lost his powers and is now working for the local police in their “Powers” division, dealing with cases involving his former peers. He’s paired with normal detective, Deena Pilgrim (Susan Heyward) and they investigate super powered villains, like Eddie Izzard. It looks a bit like if SHIELD was on a premium cable network, as it looks like they are not going to skimp on the blood or language. It’s debuting on PSN this winter, the first episode will be free for all PSN users, if you have PS Plus, it’s completely free and everyone else will be able to buy episodes for download or streaming. Check out the trailer below.
I’m like the J. Jonah Jameson of Everything Action, writing and editing and constantly demanding pictures of Spider-Man.
