While it’s not quite a superhero project in the traditional sense —though it is based on a comic series— “Powers” certainly has a mutant spirit, one not unlike X-Men. The series coming to PlayStation (yep, yet another streaming platform) has just dropped its first trailer, and while the execution is debatable, the premise is intriguing.
Starring Sharlto Copley, Michelle Forbes, Eddie Izzard, Noah Taylor, Susan Heyward, Olesya Rulin, Max Fowler and Adam Godley, the show follows a formerly super-powered guy who now investigates similarly super-powered crimes as a detective. And it’s a role that Copley seems to be enjoying, and it’s a fun approach to the genre. But again, we’re not sure how we like this first look.
Check out the trailer below. No word yet on when it will drop on PlayStation. [Comic Book]
