AMERICAN GODS came to Comic-Con with its first trailer and a panel featuring Ricky Whittle (Shadow), Ian McShane (Mr. Wednesday), Yetide Badaki (Bilquis), Pablo Schreiber (Mad Sweeney), and Bruce Langley (Technical Boy).
You can watch the full panel below, but here is some of what we learned:
- Neil Gaiman (the author of the book “American Gods”) was very involved in the series, including with regards to casting. Although, as the show has progressed he’s become a bit less involved.
- Kristin Chenoweth has been cast as Easter in the series and was brought out in the panel. She said that “Easter is very, very pissed that Jesus took her holiday.”
- Technical Boy is a bit of a chameleon and “you never see the same version of him twice.”
- You won’t need to read the book before watching the series. But even if you have read the book, you’ll still see some surprises in the show.
AMERICAN GODS will premiere in 2017.
