‘American Gods’ SDCC Teaser Is Stunning
Earlier today, Starz released the stunning new first look for their TV adaptation of the 2001 award winning novel American Gods; which was featured at the American Gods Panel at San Diego Comic Con International. I have to say, this looks absolutely fantastic. Already extremely excited for the show based on the phenomenal cast already in play, as well as author Neil Gaiman’s involvement in this TV adaptation of his extraordinary novel; this teaser is like watching the book characters come off the page.
With an eerie cover of In the Pines setting the mood for the visceral images across the screen, this teaser bodes well for the series set to air sometime in 2017.
Check out the teaser below and let us know what you think.
