Neil Gaiman’s American Gods is finally getting the live-action adaptation that we’ve all been waiting for. For those not in the know, the book centers on the proverbial “Old Gods vs. New Gods” narrative and follows the travails of Mr. Wednesday, and his quest to ensure that the memory and power of the Old Gods continues to hold dominance over the New Gods. The book itself provides an in-depth look into the power of religion, and the (sometimes) false hope of worship. Let’s hope the series does the book justice. American Gods stars Ian McShane (Mr. Wednesday), Ricky Whittle (Shadow), and premieres on Starz on April 30th, 2017.
