As previously reported, Brian Fuller and Neil Gaiman’s adaptation of Gaiman’s original work, American Gods is finally coming to television on April 30th. Other than a trailer and some info leaked around the net, there hasn’t been too much information released on the various characters (Gods… we mean Gods) who are going to be making up the cast… until now! Starz has released 10 new character posters and we have them here for you to check out.
American Gods makes its way onto the small screen on Starz April 30th, based on Neil Gaiman‘s best-selling book of the same name.

After almost three decades of waiting, the first collaborative novel between Sir Terry Pratchett (Discworld novels) and Neil Gaiman (American Gods, Stardust, and Coraline) is finally being made for television! Development for an adaptation of Good Omens began in 2002 as a film, but the project remained somewhat mired in development hell for years. By 2008, the project appeared dead in the water. Fortunately, for fans and pretty much everyone else who appreciates amazing fantasy fiction, Amazon greenlit the series, which is set to premiere sometime in 2018.
Legitimately legendary author Neil Gaiman harbors a dark secret. Either he has actual tiger blood, is a neutron star in a human disguise, has formed a dark pact with ancient gods or simply has an army of tousle-haired clones at his disposal. There can be no other explanations for how he can have so many projects on the go at once. There’s TV versions of American Gods and Good Omens on his plate as well as a radio version of Stardust, and that’s just for starters. Now he’s been announced as producer of a brand new Science Fiction show that intends to hop around the multiverse in an abandoned skyscraper. Good god man, it’s okay to just have a lie-in sometimes.
One of the most successful comic series in the past fifty years, Neil Gaiman‘s Sandman has won numerous awards and accolades, inspired a range of spin-offs and garnered an enormous cult following that continues to grow by the day, despite the comics now being nearly thirty years old. In 2005, IGN declared Sandman the best Vertigo comic ever published. The spin-off television series, Lucifer, was renewed for a second season in April this year. Despite meeting with the kind of success that most comic creators can only dream of, Sandman has still not been made into a feature film. (more…)
