PlayStation's Powers Trailer Promises the End of the World As We Know It

As the great philosopher Kanye West once said, “No one man should have all that power.”

The trailer for Powers, PlayStation’s adaptation of the Brian Michael Bendis/Michael Avon Oeming graphic novel series, drives that point home — to say the very least.

The new project, co-produced by Sony Pictures Television, follows two detectives — Christian Walker (played by District 9‘s Sharlto Copley) and Deena Pilgrim (The Following‘s Susan Heyward) — tasked with investigating homicide cases involving people with superpowers.

Eddie Izzard (The Riches) also stars as the season’s Big Bad, Wolfe, who looks like quite the adversary for the crime-solvers.

In the video above, Christian and Deena find out exactly what they’re up against, and it might be more than they can handle (even if they’re not “just regular cops”).
