First Trailer for DC Superhero Comedy ‘Powerless’ is Humorless
Ouch. This…this might be everything we ever feared. The jokes are hackneyed, the references are painfully forced; this might be the return of camp to superhero entertainment.
Powerless is a show about regular, blue collar people living and working in the world of DC superheroes. And wow, it just looks terrible. Maybe it’s my own disinterest in standard network television these days, but come on! Jokes about utility belts where the entire joke is just saying the phrase? And the superhero references couldn’t be more forced. Jeez.
At least Kate Micucci’s in it. I like her.
