SDCC: Neil Gaiman’s ‘American Gods’ Debuts First Trailer

Starz has debuted the first trailer for “American Gods,” the upcoming adaptation of Neil Gaiman’s bestselling fantasy novel.

“American Gods” follows an ex-convict named Shadow Moon (Ricky Whittle) who, upon early release from prison, is hired as the bodyguard of a mysterious con man named Wednesday (Ian McShane). However, it’s soon revealed that Wednesday is an incarnation of All-Father Odin, who’s traveling America recruiting his fellow forgotten deities to wage an epic battle against the new American gods — manifestations of modern life and technology, like the internet, media and credit cards.

“American Gods” also stars Emily Browning as Shadow’s wife Laura; Pablo Schreiber as the down-on-his-luck leprechaun Mad Sweeney; Yetide Badaki as the love goddess Bilquis; Jonathan Tucker as Shadow’s philosophical adviser Low-Key Lyesmith; Crispin Glover as the seemingly omniscient Mr. World; Bruce Langley as Technical Boy, the personification of the internet; Gillian Anderson as the new god Media; Cloris Leachman as Zorya Vechernyaya, the eldest of three sisters who watch over the constellations; Peter Stormare as Czernobog, the Slavic god of darkness and evil; Chris Obi as Anubis, the Egyptian god of the dead; Mousa Kraish as The Jinn; and Kristin Chenoweth as Easter, the Germanic goddess of the dawn.

Executive produced by Bryan Fuller and Michael Green, “American Gods” debuts in 2017 on Starz.
