The Damon Lindelof-created series has also cast Tim Blake Nelson, Louis Gossett Jr., Adelaide Clemens, and Andrew Howard. The Leftovers’ Regina King will take on the lead role in the series. No further character details have been revealed.
Lindelof, on Tuesday, gave a little insight into the direction his series will take. Whilst being careful not to reveal too much he revealed that the series will be moving away from the graphic novel; expect new characters set in the present day.
“Some of the characters will be unknown,” he said. “New Faces. New masks to cover them. We also intend to revisit the past century of Costumed Adventuring through a surprising yet familiar set of eyes…and it is here we will be taking our greatest risks.
