Here’s what David S. Goyer, creator-writer-producer of the new Starz series, has to say about his new show, coming April 12th, via The H’wood Reporter:

People have said aside from Christ he’s the most recognizable figure in the world. My approach wasn’t unsimilar to adapting Batman and Superman — obviously we did a lot more research.”
And here’s the latest trailer:
Admit it: This looks !@#$ awesome!
