Wil Wheaton who is best known for ‘Star Trek: The Next Generation’ and most recently for ‘Big Bang Theory’, ‘Leverage’ and ‘Eureka’ is to join the cast for season two of the Playstation Network Series ‘Powers’, which incidentally is still to air on the UK version of PSN.
The actor/writer is to play a new character who is to yet make his debut in the ‘Powers’ comics.
Brian Michael Bendis, an executive producer on Powers and co-creator of the comics, says this new character will be revealed in upcoming issues. Wheaton’s character on the show is described as “exciting, mysterious and powerful.”
The second season of ‘Powers’ is currently in production in Atlanta, and will be following the “Who Killed Retro Girl?” storyline from Vol. 1 of the comics. The plot will have the Powers Division investigating the murder of the world famous superhero Retro Girl (Michelle Forbes) and “the mysteries that her death uncovers.” Sharlto Copley, Susan Heyward, Michael Madsen and Tricia Helfer also star.
The series is available on the PlayStation Store for free streaming to all PlayStation Plus subscribers except for members in the UK and certain parts of Europe who are still waiting…..
