FX TV has revealed the first image of Jason Patric from its pilot Powers, based on Brian Michael Bendis and Michael Avon Oeming's long-running superhero crime series. Filming has been underway in Chicago for the past few weeks.
Chicago Sun Times revealed the image of the actor who stars as police detective Christian Walker, who enforces super-powered criminals.
Executive producer and writer Charles H. Eglee added:
"For me it was about creating some interesting characters in a law enforcement context, and it just so happens that the bad guys they're fighting have abilities that regular people don't have. I just look at our bad guys as metaphors for real-life characters."
If FX picks up the series, the show will air next summer.
