With its miserable fall season, NBC could really use a hit right now, and it’s banking on Heroes Reborn, a continuation of the once-popular superhero series, to provide that boost. Today, the network released the first official images from the upcoming limited series, which will see the return of some old cast members as well as the unveiling of many new ones. The new shots provide our first look at Jack Coleman, reprising the role of Noah Bennet (aka Hrg), and new characters played by Chuck alum Zachary Levi and up-and-comer Kiki Sukezane.
Levi plays Luke Collins, a mysterious character who clearly seems none-too-happy with someone he’s holding a gun on, while Sukezane is taking on the role of Miko Otomo. Details on who these new people are will have to wait, though Collins is believed to be the series’ villain, devoted to tracking »
