Default First still from "Powers" released



USA Today have debuted our first look at the small screen adaptation of Brian Michael Bendis' comic series. Meet Sharlto Copley (District 9) as Christian Walker, and Susan Heyward (The Following) as Deena Pilgrim after the jump.

Brian Michael Bendis will executive produce the show, with David Slade directing the first two episodes. Powers is currently in its fourth week of filming in Atlanta, and no air-date has been set for its 10-episode first season. It will première on the Sony PlayStation Network, and also stars Michelle Forbes, Eddie Izzard, and Noah Taylor.

Quote:
Based on the long-running comic book series by writer Brian Michael Bendis (who's also an executive producer on the show) and artist Michael Avon Oeming, Powers leans into the classic TV trope of pairing a veteran cop with a rookie.

The twist? One of them used to be a superhero.

Played by Sharlto Copley (District 9), Christian Walker has an expertise in dealing with people boasting extraordinary abilities and knows how to get in their heads, how their powers operate and how he can leverage that to solve cases.

He's never been properly trained as a real cop, though. So part of the point of teaming him with Deena Pilgrim (Susan Heyward of The Following) is that "she knows nothing about this world," Huston says. "She's really young, she's really inexperienced, but she's a completely instinctive, awesome detective."

They're "the heart and the soul" of Powers, Bendis says, yet he promises a "different experience" than the comic. "My dream was for the show and the books to almost run in parallel universes as they explore the same themes."
