While we all wait for the firs trailer of PlayStation’s crime drama adaptation of the comic book Powers to be debuted at NYCC this weekend, we get to check out the first official poster for the show. Powers is based on a comic book by Brian Michael Bendis and Michael Avon Oeming. Sharlto Copley will play Christian Walker and Susan Heyward plays Deena Pilgrim. Christan and Deena are cops who specialize in cases where people with superhuman abilities, or Powers are involved.
“Powers” is an edgy dramatic series that follows the lives of two homicide detectives, Christian Walker and Deena Pilgrim, who are assigned to investigate cases involving people with superhuman 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 brave people in charge of protecting humans like us and keeping the peace with these over-paid, commercialized, god-like men and women who glide through the sky imposing their power over the mortals who both worship and fear them.
