July 17th, 2014 by Jake Tanner Comments

Sony’s Powers just got three more names for its upcoming series Powers. Deadline recently reported that Susan Heyward (The Following) will be playing the female lead Detective Deena Pilgrim. Max Fowler (The Killing) and Adam Godley (Breaking Bad) have been cast as Krispin Stockley and Captain Cross respectively.

“Powers,” written by Brian Michael Bendis and drawn by Michael Avon Oeming, follows two detectives, Christian Walker and Deena Pilgrim, as they investigate superhero-related homicides. The series launched in 2004 through Image Comics and is now published by Marvel’s Icon imprint.

Charlie Huston will write the first episode and serve as showrunner with Remi Aubuchon. 30 Days of Night and “Hannibal” director David Slade will helm the first two episodes of the series, which will launch on the PlayStation Network this December.

I'm 25 years old and I'm hugely passionate about comic books and I also LOVE gaming. The birth of my daughter, Abby, rekindled my passion for comic book stories. I grew up on them and I want nothing more than to share that passion with her! I'm a pretty typical guy, I love sports. (NHL-Blackhawks, NBA-Lakers, MLB-Cubs, and NFL-Daaaa Bears!). I've been writing for a pretty big portion of my life, and I've been nominated for multiple awards for some of the poetry I’ve written! Happy reading and follow me on Twitter @xJatmanx.
