The Cape Trailer Premieres, Disappoints

The CapeNBC’s replacement, The Cape, recently premiered its full-length trailer. While I may not have agreed with where Heroes ended up, at least its initial premise beat this one’s: good cop gets framed and is left for dead; guy is found by a clandestine group who trains him to be a superhero; superhero fights crime.

One might say that it’s to be expected, it’s a superhero series. True, but isn’t that what we have comic books for? In our current world of theorists and Fringe fanatics, it’s easy to see that viewers want more complex stories with quickly (but slowly) unearthed mythologies. While I can’t say much considering it’s just the trailer (which you can view after the jump), all I’m saying is that the trailer isn’t selling me, and I’m thinking that this alone may be better than the pilot.

Will I watch it? Of course—what else will be left with all these cancellations lately?

And as much as I love her, and as much as I hate saying this… I’m willing to bet that will be out of a job (again) by the end of the year.
