David Slade will direct the first two episodes of the PlayStation Network adaptation of the Marvel/Icon comic series Powers, which will debut in December, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
According to the report, the live-action series, which is slated for a 10-episode run, is currently casting, but no major roles have been filled, despite the approaching premiere.  Slade is currently executive producer and sometime director for NBC’s Hannibal, and his directing credits include the 2007 film version of 30 Days of Night, as well as The Twilight Saga: Eclipse and Hard Candy
The adaptation of Brian Michael Bendis and Michael Avon Oeming’s paranormal police procedural comic landed at PlayStation in March after languishing for years in development hell (see "'Powers' Lands at PlayStation").  Now Sony plans to stream the series on its console’s PlayStation Network.  The first episode will stream for free, while subscribers with a PlayStation Plus membership will be able to view the whole series for no additional charge.
