Comic nerds, rejoice! Brian Michael Bendis and Michael Avon Oeming’s comic “Powers” is getting the Hollywood treatment. The upcoming adaptation follows the lives of two homicide detectives (played by Sharlto Copley and Susan Heyward) who specialize in cases dealing with supernatural powers (hence the title). A futuristic drama with a tinge of cheesy cop humor, “Powers” brings with it a strong fan base and a pre-plotted story arc thanks to the established comic book series. The series is still in the middle of shooting, but Comic-Con offered a sneak peak of what to expect this December.
Produced by Sony Pictures Television, the series is the first of PlayStation Network’s original programming, following recent trends in alternate digital distribution. Watch the Comic-Con exclusive trailer below:
