If you’ve been looking forward to Bryan Fuller’s take on Neil Gaiman‘s ‘American Gods‘ than today’s new character posters should be a real treat. While we’re still a month out from Starz debuting the series, visually every little sneak peak they’ve given us have left us wanting more. In these images we’ll be seeing a mix of old gods and new including Ricky Whittle’s Shadow Moon, Ian McShane’s Mr. Wednesday, Emily Browning’s Laura Moon, Yetide Badaki’s Bilquis, Orland Jones’ Mr. Nancy, Pablo Schreiber’s Mad Sweeney, Bruce Langley’s Technical Boy, Kristin Chenoweth’s Easter, Peter Stormare’s Czenobog, and Crispin Glover’s Mr. World.
While not the entire cast, these are clearly the ones who will be the main players if you’ve read the novel or have been watching the teasers.
Let’s take a look at them in order, shall we?
First up we’ve got Shadow Moon who is flipping his iconic coin from the novel:
Next up is Mr. Wednesday with a bit of a clue as to his true identity:
Shouldn’t she be in the casket?
If you’re looking for love Bilquis might not actually be the one you’ll want to stumble across…
Mr. Nancy has a trick to show you…
There’s gold at the end of the rainbow, but who guards it?
Hey look, it’s the same shot we’ve seen of Technical Boy for about the 50th time!
Easter just seems so, festive.
The God of Evil doesn’t look to be too welcoming.
Who is the mysterious Mr. World? I can’t wait for the non-readers to find out!
Visually, even the darker ones here have some color thanks to those neon signs. I can’t wait for this series to finally kick off next month!
Are you looking forward to ‘American Gods’? Which of the above are you most excited to see on screen? Share your thoughts below!
American Gods pits Old Gods against New Gods, with the ancient mythological ones fearing irrelevance as their believers die off or are seduced by the money, technology, and celebrity offered by the younger deities. Shadow Moon (Ricky Whittle) is an ex-con who, left adrift by the recent death of his wife, becomes bodyguard and traveling partner to conman Mr. Wednesday (Ian McShane). But in truth, Mr. Wednesday is a powerful old deity, on a cross-country mission to build an army and reclaim his lost glory.
The ‘American Gods’ Will Wage War On Starz On April 30th, 2017 at 9 pm ET/PT!
