Things seem to be heating up for “Powers” since last December, when writer Brian Michael Bendis announced that Charles Eglee (Dexter, The Walking Dead, The Shield) had come on board to pen and produce the adaptation of his cult comic. With Super 8 star Kyle Chandler in talks for the lead, FX has cast Charles S. Dutton as Captain Cross, head of a homicide police department where detectives Christian Walker and Deena Pilgrim investigate crimes involving those with superpowers.
Based on the popular comic by Bendis and Michael Avon Oeming, Powers is finally being given a shot at the small screen after Sony optioned the rights for a feature film version almost 10 years ago, which never came to fruition. Powers has been in publication for more than a decade, producing a dozen graphic novels and more than 60 issues.
