Two key parts in PlayStation’s first original series have been filled. The comic-book-based superhero saga Powers has cast its lead roles: Christian Walker and fan favorite Retro Girl.
Walker will be played by Sharloto Copley (District 9, Maleficent), while Michelle Forbes (The Killing, Chicago Fire) is Retro Girl (pics below).
Walker is described as “dapper and charismatic” with “the dissolute air of a faded rock star and the body of a battered heavyweight. Once possessed of super-powers, Walker lost his powers in a battle with a super-human mass killer. A faded hero, he’s now a detective who works with law enforcement, using his singular expertise to investigate crimes in the Powers community.” Meanwhile, Retro Girl has a “cool, hard exterior with a fire right below the surface. Retro Girl is the undisputed super star of the Powers community. An icon of justice, selflessness, and business acumen. Her willingness to put herself at risk for the good of others is matched only by her ability to manage her globe-spanning personal brand.” READ FULL STORY
