Bendis Confirms Live Action POWERS On FX

Posted by G-Man (29372 posts) - - Show Bio
This is good news.  Bendis talked to MTV and confirmed that a live-action TV series based on his and Michael Avon Oeming's "Powers" is coming to FX.
“‘Powers’ is in active development as a pilot at FX,” Bendis told MTV. “I just handed in a draft to the network and we’re getting our notes from the network as soon as this thing is over. So next week I’ll get the notes, and as long as they don’t involve sock puppets and some sort of orgy scene that I’m not interested in, then hopefully it will go in the right direction.  But they’re a very smart network.  It seems like the right place for it to be.”
"Powers" gives a look at the world of superheroes from the eyes of two homicide officers.  Detective Christian Walker, himself once had powers.  It's a more realistic look and hopefully the hard and gritty edge of the comic will be in place.

For more information on "Powers" and why it rocks, check out this VIDEO.

I like how it's "some orgy scene that I'm not interested in" meaning to me that there may be an orgy scene that he would say yes to.

Hey that's cool.  Since it's gonna be on FX I assume it will stay adult oriented.

That would be my biggest concern.  If it was toned down, it would be almost pointless.

HAHAHAHA!! Sock puppets. My man Bendis is hilarious. FX is one of the better TV networks. In fact I say its in the top 5. I'm glad he's writing the show himself. I love his New Spider-Man The Animated Series on MTV. Such a great cartoon.G-Man said:

I doubt it. FX is the home of The Shield. That show is almost HBO hardcore. lol

Yep! Yep! Yep! I think I knew that before I read Ultimate Spider-Man
(which is probably my favorite comic book series)

Are we talking about the one from a few years ago, starring Neil Patrick Harris and Lisa Loeb?
