Superhero fans, there is a new guy that looks like to kick some ass on your TV screens every week. "The Cape" is airing its 2-hour premiere this January 9th on NBC that will star David Lyons as the new hero in black.
"The series, set in the fictional metropolis of Palm City, follows an innocent cop who has been framed for a crime he did not commit and then left for dead after he is caught. He is eventually saved by a circus ringleader who prepares him with special abilities to defend himself against his foes. Separated from his wife and son, he tries to clear his name while protecting them from being killed in the event that he should be reported alive. He takes the law into his own hands by taking the guise of his son's favorite comic book hero, The Cape, after he is given a special suit that has unique capabilities. Vowing to get rid of the corruption that has taken over both the city and the police force, he goes after the person responsible for setting him up and causing his "demise".
Ordinary guy gets mystical powers and becomes the man who saves the day? Sounds good to me. That formula worked 70 years ago and for sure will work again in this new generation. I'm excited to see how this would fare. And because I only watch Smallville during weekends, adding this to my weekly TV schedule is a plus.
Don't forget to visit the official site and as usual you gotta watch the spectacular (yeah, I mean it) trailer after the jump:
