New ‘Powerless’ Image Contains Batman Easter Egg


If you haven’t gotten enough of your DC TV fix, then add the DC Comics-inspired Powerless to your list this February. A new image from the sitcom shows series star Vanessa Hudgens holding up a flyer advertising a karaoke event at the Kane and Fingers Pub. This, of course, is a reference to Batman co-creators Bob Kane and Bill Finger.

You can view the image below!


Powerless, which was initially set at an insurance company, has been changed to take place at a subsidiary of Wayne Enterprises.

Along with Hudgens, the show also stars Alan Tudyk, Christian Kirk, Danny Pudi, and Ron Funches.

Powerless premieres on NBC on February 2nd at 8:30/7:30c.

In a world where humanity must cope with the collateral damage of Super Heroes and Super-Villains, Emily Locke (Vanessa Hudgens) begins her first day as Director of Research & Development for Wayne Security, a subsidiary of Wayne Enterprises that specializes in products that make defenseless bystanders feel a little safer. Full of confidence and big ideas, Emily quickly learns that her expectations far exceed those of her new boss (Alan Tudyk) and officemates, so it will be up to her to lead the team toward their full potential and the realization that you don’t need superpowers to be a hero.

    DC is trying to conquer network TV while Marvel is basically stuck on ABC. I highly doubt this show will last more than eight episodes, but I would love to be wrong.

      Precisely, as far as the TV shows are concerned. In terms of this show, it’s already been promised a complete season, so we’ll see more than 8 eps for this.

      I for one am excited for this. A Superhero comedy TV show? New territory (unless you count the nonsense that Marvel does in the movies).

    I’ll give 3 episodes before NBC kills it, due to “DOA” non-existent ratings…This thing has already went through a showrunner change halfway during its production.
