Sony Pictures Home Entertainment has added Powers: The Complete First Season to its roster, scheduling the superhero-themed TV series for release on Blu-Ray Disc and DVD in July.
What if the world was full of superheroes who aren’t actually heroic at all? What if all their “powers” were just one more excuse for mischief, mayhem, murder, and endorsement deals? Enter the men and women of the Powers Division, the brave people in charge of protecting humans like us and keeping the peace over commercialized, god-like men and women who glide through the sky imposing their power over the mortals who both worship and fear them. Based on the graphic novel by Michael Avon Oeming and Brian Michael Bendis, the edgy and dramatic “Powers” follows the lives of two homicide detectives, Christian Walker (Sharlto Copley) and Deena Pilgrim (Susan Heyward), who are assigned to investigate these cases.
Aside from all 10 episodes that make up the show’s first season, the release will also contain the Featurette “Policing the All Powerful: Envisioning and Filming Powers”.
The Blu-Ray version will also contain a number of Deleted Scenes and Outtakes, along with the Featurette “From One Visual Medium to Another: The Art and Adaptation of Powers”.
Sony has scheduled “Powers: The Complete First Season” for release on July 14 with a $45.99 sticker price on Blu-Ray Disc and a $35.99 price tag for the DVD version.
