Every sneak peek we get for Starz’s American Gods is further proof that this show is going to weird, fantastical, and like nothing you’ve seen before. This time around Starz has released character videos for Shadow Moon (Ricky Whittle) and Mr. Wednesday (Ian McShane).
Introducing Shadow Moon: ex-convict, a novice when it comes to the Old Gods and the New, and currently wondering if he’s losing his mind.
Introducing Mr. Wednesday: hustler, swindler, cheater, liar, and an Old God about to start a war with the New Gods.
This adaptation of Neil Gaiman’s book tells the story of Shadow Moon, an ex-convict, who experiences a tragedy just as he’s being released. A mysterious encounter sets him off on a cross country road trip with Mr. Wednesday, a con man who knows a little too much about Shadow. Before he knows it Shadow’s embroiled in a battle between the Old Gods and the New ones that have emerged in America.
American Gods premieres Sunday, April 30 at 9/8c on Starz.
