Debuting just under a month from now, we get to see a little more of NBC’s DC Universe set sitcom, Powerless via its first commercial. Take a peek for yourself down below!
What’s significant about this TV ad here is that its the first footage we’ve seen since it was announced that the central place of business for the series was changed to Wayne Security, a subsidiary of Wayne Enterprises that helps and protects ordinary citizens from the collateral damage of battles between superheroes and supervillains in the world of DC Comics through specialized products. As well as insurance shown here with the thrown train that wrecks someone’s car. Poor guy.
We also get to see a little bit of the main team who will be the focus of the show at work creating and testing out various product to protect average citizens from the ensuing battles, most notably main character Emily Locke, played by Vanessa Hudgens. The Batman connection is made a little deeper with a copy of “Wayne or Lose” that she’s holding. So add best selling author to the list of accomplishments for Bruce Wayne as well.
Powerless here also appears to be more vibrant and fun-going than what DC appears to be doing on film, though given how they are keeping their TV shows and movies separate that’s most certainly deliberate.
I’m looking forward to seeing how Powerless plays out. It’s got a great cast, an interesting premise, and plenty of potential to really stand out among the other superhero TV offerings we have right now.
What did you think of the new footage? Are you excited for the show? Let us know in the comments below!
Powerless premieres on NBC on February 2 and also stars Danny Pudi, Alan Tudyk, Christina Kirk, Ron Funches, Kate Micucci, and Josh Fadem.
