We've seen plenty of Powers footage, but the latest trailer for the live-action adaptation of Brian Michael Bendis' comic book plays more like a fake trailer one would see in a comedy. Behold, and look upon Sharlto Copley grimacing so very hard.

The series, which will air on sony's PlayStation Network next month, is based off a fantastic comic that follows a group of cops who follow the superhero beat. Copley's detective was an ex-super who was stripped of his powers, and it ain't easy. For better reference, here's a trailer with actual clips from the series.

Despite the cheesy video up top, we're still fairly hopeful for this series. The source material is very, very good, and it seems like it would be hard to muck it up. Plus we love all the actors attached, so fingers crossed we guess.
