Powers is back for a second season and it looks like fans of the comic will finally get to see an adaptation of the first Powers storyline: Who Killed Retro girl?
The new trailer for season two finds a retired Power coming out of retirement and last season’s biggest wannabe getting some good advice from former Power, Christian Walker. Also, it looks like the government is trying to outlaw Powers. I wonder how that will go?
Check out the trailer after the jump. Powers returns on May 31 with three episodes. New episodes will roll out on subsequent Tuesdays.
It was a bit of a shock to learn that Brian Michael Bendis and Michael Avon Oeming’s dark stake on super-powered characters, Powers, had been licensed by Playstation.
Then they cast Sharlto Copley as Christian Walker – a former Power who lost his powers under devastating circumstances and now was a detective investigating Powered crimes. The they cast Eddie Izzard as bad guy Power, Wolfe and changed Walker’s partner, Deena Pilgrim from petite blue-eyed, blonde to African-American because Susan Heyward’s audition was so impressive. Then they added Michelle Forbes as Retro Girl – one of the few genuinely altruistic Powers in the world. Suddenly, the Powers live-action series become a source of much intrigue – intrigue that grew with the release of the first trailer last October.
Now, Sony and Playstation have released the first behind-the-scenes look at the world of Powers – a seven-minute video that features interviews with most of the major players in front of and behind the camera. Check it out after the jump.
Powers premieres on March 10th, with new episodes released on Tuesdays
