These posters feature characters Shadow Moon, Mr. Wednesday, Bilquis, Laura Moon, Mr. Nancy, Mad Sweeney, Technical Boy, Easter, Czernobog, and Mr. World. In addition to showcasing a picture of the actor playing the role, each image contains a short tagline describing the character. For example, Czernobog is described as “The God of Evil” while Laura Moon is described as “The Dead Wife.” Each poster also makes reference to its respective character’s power, with Mr. Nance’s featuring a spider on his shoulder, with a spiderweb in the corner, and Mad Sweeney’s showing the character tossing gold into the air.
“American Gods” is an adaptation of Neil Gaiman’s Hugo Award-winning novel of the same name. The series and book focus on Shadow Moon, who is given an early release from prison after finding out that his wife, Laura Moon, has been killed. Shadow Moon is then pulled into an escalating conflict between the Old Gods and New by Mr. Wednesday, a con artist who is more than he appears. The book has also recently been adapted into a comic by Dark Horse, which is fitting considering Gaiman’s history writing comics.
“American Gods” premieres on April 30, 2017. The show is produced by Bryan Fuller and Michael Green and stars Ricky Whittle as Shadow Moon, Ian McShane as Mr. Wednesday, Emily Browning as Laura Moon, Pablo Schreiber as Mad Sweeney, Bruce Langley as Technical Boy, Yetide Badaki as Bilquis, Crispin Glover as Mr. World, Kristin Chenoweth as Easter, Peter Stormare as Czernobog, and Orlando Jones as Mr. Nancy.
