DC Comics’ Powerless Trailer Drops Online And It Is Perfection

DC Comics and NBC has given me a show that I have been waiting for with Powerless.


The hotly anticipated mid-season fare from the peacock network stars Vanessa Hudgens as Emily Locke, an insurance claims adjuster in the DC Universe. Her firm specializes in dealing with superhero based claims, and she takes real pride in her work.

(Maybe the way to end Civil War was to introduce Damage Control in the MCU?)

When her department is taken over by the CEO’s corporate evil son played by Alan Tudyk, it’s up to Emily and her best friend, Teddy (Daniel Pudi) to save the day. Or, at least, make their job bearable again.

The trailer, about two minutes, appears to have been leaked online. I can’t find an official version released by NBC. It’s also two minute of cracky hilarity that I was praying for from this show. Out of all of the trailers that I have seen over the past week, Powerless is easily number one with a speeding bullet.

Also I relate so hard to Christina Kirk’s character, Jackie.

“I want to nail Aquaman so hard.”

Girl same. Especially if it’s Jason Momoa as Aquaman. I would be down for that crossover.

You can check out the trailer below.

Oh. And that hero is Crimson Fox. From what I know, she’s not a top tiered hero. She does, however, get the job done.

Also the Lex Luthor biography, superhero shout-outs for days, and Vanessa Hudgens is charming as hell. I am so here for this show.

Powerless premieres on NBC during the midseason.
