A Handful of New Teaser Clips for NBC’s The Cape


It’s one of the very few new shows I’m looking forward to in 2011. I’m talking about NBC’s “The Cape”, a superhero show that, shockingly, isn’t based on a comic book. Well, sort of. The character is based on a comic book within the show, so technically while he’s not based on a comic book character, he actually is. Get it? No? Whatever. It’s got Summer Glau playing the female lead, and she’s finally featured in one of the show’s short teaser clips. It’s also got Keith David acting all Keith David and awesome, and the good guy punching the crap out of Vinnie Jones, which is always worth the price of admission in itself.

Starring David Lyons as a framed cop who becomes The Cape, Keith David as his mentor, Summer Glau as a crusading blogger, James Frain as the Big Bad with Vinnie Jones as one of the baddies.

“The Cape” makes his first appearance Sunday, January 9, 2011, before moving to his regular time slot on Mondays starting January 17, 2010.

Bonus: Here’s an earlier promo and an extended preview clip released for the show a while back.

    I’m with you Nix. I really really want to see this show. It looks like it could be pretty fun. What a batman tv show could be like if DC would commit to something like that.

    I’m on the opposite side. Everything about this show looks like Mantis. It’s going to bomb bigger than No Ordinary Family.

      First of all I liked M.A.N.T.I.S., well at least the tv movie, the series not so much. I liked the trench coat and suit look with the mask, kind of a cyber Green Hornet. I don’t think they though beyond some corny villain of the week. This looks better though with a firm setting of the corrupt police and city, and such.

      As for “No Ordinary Family” how has that bombed. It may not be killing in ratings but it’s still airing at least. Several shows that debuted around the same time have been cancelled and aren’t even on anymore. DO I think it will get another season, doubtful but here’s hoping.
