After years of announcements, false starts and anticipation, a live-action adaptation of the comic series Powers is officially a go. Co-creator Brian Michael Bendis announced Tuesday mornining on the PlayStation blog that Powers, the platform's first live action series, will debut on March 10.
"The first episode will be free for everyone at PlayStation.com/Powers and the full season will be available free to members of PlayStationPlus... which you should have already becuase it's awesome," says Bendis.
PlayStation will premiere the first three episodes on March 10, with the remaining seven serialized every Tuesday following. Currently Powers is dubbed a "PlayStation-exclusive," so there's no word on if the episodes will be available later on home video. Also, nothing has been said about international distribution of the series.
Bendis will be appearing on Late Night with Seth Meyers Tuesday to promote the upcoming debut of Powers, and on Wednesday Bendis and co-creator Michael Avon Oeming are relaunching the Powers comic series with a new #1 published by Marvel's Icon imprint.
