Following the extended preview released last week, Sony's Playstation Network has debuted the second trailer for their new TV series Powers, which debuts March 10. For Playstation Plus members, the episodes will be free of charge, although everyone can watch the pilot episode at Playstation/com/Powers at no cost. After the first three episodes are released on March 10, new episodes will debut every Tuesday after that.
Sharlto Copley and Susan Heyward star as Christian Walker and Deena Pilgrim, two homicide detectives 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 over commercialized, god-like men and women who glide through the sky imposing their power over the mortals who both worship and fear them.
Michelle Forbes (Retro Girl), Eddie Izzard (Wolfe) and Noah Taylor (Johnny Royalle) round out the cast of this series, based on the comic books created by Brian Michael Bendis. In addition to the trailer, we also have a new poster which you can check out before Powers debuts in less than two weeks.
