The Hollywood Reporter brings word today that two more have joined the cast of Sony's upcoming adaptation of "Powers," including District 9's Sharlto Copley in the lead role of the formerly-superpowered hero-turned-detective Christian Walker, and Michelle Forbes of "The Killing" as the super heroine Retro Girl.

The pair are joined by Susan Heyward as Detective Pilgrim along with Max Fowler, Adam Godley, Noah Taylor, Olesya Rulin and Eddie Izzard.

"Powers," written by Brian Michael Bendis and drawn by Michael Avon Oeming, follows two detectives, Christian Walker and Deena Pilgrim, as they investigate superhero-related homicides. The series launched in 2004 through Image Comics and is now published by Marvel’s Icon imprint.

Charlie Huston will write the first episode and serve as showrunner with Remi Aubuchon. 30 Days of Night and "Hannibal" director David Slade will helm the first two episodes of the series, which will launch on the PlayStation Network this December.
